I was only going to have a salad until I saw a beautiful thin crust pizza delivered to an adjacent table... I told my boyfriend to order a large and I still ordered the salad for me. Cooked in a wood fired grill the pizza (with everything) was delivered to our table hot and crispy. The flavors, spices, topping... Just perfect. It is very unusual for a thin crust pizza with lots of toppings to stay crisp. This one did! If you are a fan of thin crust pizzas you must go here. I still got the salad which was huge loaded with fresh tomatoes, avocados, green peppers and more. Even after 5 pieces of pizza I could not resist the better part of this salad.

I know a Tigrillo is not a tiger but I’m sure Tony the Tiger would agree, They’re Grrreat!!! .
We came here 2 nights in a row, a rarity for us. Best pizza in Ecuador. Service is fast and capable. Great family venue. If you visit Mindo put this place on your itinerary.

I had a good time at El Tigrillo. It was recommended to me by a friend and has a domed, wood (I believe) oven where they cook the pizza. It was definitely a nice change of pace from my normal fare here in Ecuador and very family friendly. The staff is nice and it's usually crowded. We went for dinner and were a big group, so it was nice that they could accommodate all of us. If you want pizza in Mindo, it's a nice option, but it's not at the top of my list.

Great pizza, sandwiches and almuerzo also! Very Feeney family owned business with a real wood burning stove to prepare pizzas and sandwiches. Ignore reviews that want a cookie cutter experience.
