“Clean, friendly & tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Good food in a clean, friendly atmosphere. Owned & operated by an Ecuadorian / American couple. We suspect the fully occupied rooms out back are among the nicest in town.

“Friendly, good food, good coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

The steak here is actually edible - not just that, but delicious, which can be tough to find in Ecuador. The coffee was excellent. The owners are wonderfully friendly. It's a bit pricey, especially for alcohol, but it's nice!

“Dining delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Highly recommended by our hostal owner and other travellers, we checked out this beautiful restaurant for dinner. Menu offers a wide variety of options and sets itself clearly apart from the other pizza and pasta places located on the main street. Be sure to finish off your meal with Helado De Paila which was divinely refreshing.
Attentive staff and lovely surrounds (including fireplace) made for an overall delightful dining experience.

“So-so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The place was full with foreigners, the staff was kind, but the kitchen services were very slow and we had very little time to wait. They have vegetarian dishes which is nice and their food is absolutely ZERO salt and low on condiments, it didn't taste special.

“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We lived in Mindo for 3 months and whenever we wanted a restaurant to just sit and relax in we went to Caskaffesu. We sipped coffee on the veranda and caught up on e-mails and stateside news with their wifi. Or we ate inside (wonderful meals) and just talked or played cards. Susan, the owner, was always accommodating and helpful, AND she makes the best Margaritas And the best Pina Coladas on the planet. If you are ever in Mindo and want a change from empanadas and Pilsner, go to Caskaffesu.
