This is a cute little restaurant with crepes and other tasty breakfast foods (as well as lunch, dinner). I have eaten here a couple of times for breakfast and always enjoy it. Cute, funky decorations and good food. What more can you ask for?

We enjoyed the ocean breezes and the cool shade of Papillon on a blistering hot beach day in Montanita. I had the ceviche with shrimp, patacones (deep-fried plantains) and cold beer for lunch. One of our party had the seafood crepe and it was delicious -- the crepes are highly recommended. Lunch for four came to $65, which is steep for Ecuador. Definitely tourist prices, but then again, Montanita is a town teeming with tourists.

Super cool spot right on the "strip" with fantastic food, especially the breakfast...which you're going to need in this town. Loved the staff and the vibe. Very authentic, relaxed and fun!

Papillon is my "go to" restaurant in Montañita. Their pastas and sandwiches are amazing, and they have "crepes de sal" if you are looking for a more economical option. (I recommend the crepe caprese: cheese, tomato, pesto, delicious.) Also their desserts are to die for. The brownie sundae is one of the best in town, and they have amazing crepes with fruit and nutella and scoops of icecream.

The walls and tables are covered in one of a kinda artwork done by the local artist Javier Esmeralda, which really makes the place feel special. And if you just want to chill, grab a hookah and smoke some sheesha over some excellent cocktails with your friends.
