“Best food in Banos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We absolutely loved it - the cheese and sausage platter was wonderful, and so were the salad and soup. Best meal of the entire vacation in Ecuador.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

We had a very nice dinner at the Swiss Bistro. The salad and the Fondue Bourgignonne (meat fondue) were excellent. We really ate a lot. The ambiente is very nice and the owner and the staff are very friendly and attentive. Prices are moderate. We really recomend this place!

“Everything was great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Came here on Valentines Day with friends and had a great time. They made space for us even though they didn't think they had any, were very accomodating when we returned a bottle of wine we weren't happy with (and only charged us for the cheaper bottle) and served us delicious food. We had french onion soupp, tomato soup, mac & cheese and steak with a dijonnaise sauce and everything was delicious. Highly recommended.

“Chocolate fondue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

We only came here for dessert one night. We got the chocolate fondue to share between two people. Having just had a large dinner it was a good size, but a little overpriced for how much you get. The atmosphere is good and staff were friendly.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

This restaurant was just OK. Service was very slow even though there were only a few tables occupied. The roestis are too large for an appetizer and a little skimpy for a main course. Everything was just OK, which may very well be above average for Banos.
