Me and my partner both loved this place, we were unsure of the small menu and lack of choices but we were soon corrected! Such a unique meal with local (and fair trade) ingredients, I think we’ll return before our days are done in Mindo!

Our host recommended this place to us, and we're so glad he did. It's a clean, attractive little restaurant near our other favorite Mindo restaurant, El Camaleon. The main dish is a blend of grains and vegetables and spices that you can eat on its own or order it topped with one of a selection of meats. We had beer and wine with our meal and passed an enjoyable first night in Mindo at The Food Studio, planning our week. The food is wholesome and delicious, plain but exquisite. I wish this restaurant was near my home.

While we loved all the traditional Ecuadorian food we'd been eating, we were looking for a healthy break from it. This place was perfect. All the ingredients were so fresh. And the best part was Mauricio the owner. You can tell that the restaurant is a labor of love for him. He spent time talking to us, telling us about his place. We left feeling full and refreshed, Definitely check it out when you're in Mindo!
