Overall taste of food fine. We asked for a "lomo a la plancha" and "trucha a la plancha " both dishes super grease....that was the downside. On the other side...the service was quick and natural juices were tasty.

We stopped for a lunch break during a leather shopping trip in Cotacachi. The shrimp in garlic sauce was delicious. Typical for most Ecuadorian restaurants, a bowl of popcorn with a tasty hot sauce was complimentary!

Cotocachi is the place to come for leather shopping and this restaurant perfect for decent local food. It's not expensive nor pretentious - everything was delicious and the waiters v cute!

We stopped by for a small bite and a drink. It was very good. I ordered the local soup and the ceviche along with a cold beer. The food was very good and the wait staff was good.
