We were out walking and exploring and stumbled upon this place. While there we met some very interesting, open, and informative Expats that shared information about the town and it's happenings with us. We only had drinks the first time, then we went back for breakfast. Huevos Rancheros and Blueberry (fresh) pancakes! Very inexpensive and great quality foods. We were... More

This old standby is a hangout for gringos. Any time of day you can get a good meal and find a local who will happily help to make your Cotacachi experience worthwhile.

This restaurant was ok. I wasn't impressed as I was disappointed with my meal in particular; I ordered the spicy, blackened fish. It was neither spicy nor blackened. Either they messed up the order or don't know what that means exactly. My wife loved her shrimp tacos. Their fresh orange juice was amazing.

I found this place lovely and the variety of dishes were great! Did not expect to find a place like this in Cotacachi. The music could be better.

We ordered a bit of everything among 13 people and all of us were amazed. We enjoyed this healthy food with plenty of veggies. We recommmend anything with quinoa. The staff is also very kind and helpful. This is a great spot if you want to eat something different to the typical local food.

Solid Rock is owned by Santiago and his wife Veronica. They serve comfort food, Ecuadorian food, and ice cream along with empanadas, juice, and the occasional open face Turkey sandwich. The quality and service are great. This is a wonderful place to connect with other expats and the food is always good. Check out their breakfast items available all day.... More
