We had lunch at Mi Otavalo on Saturday the busy Market day ... A little more expensive for the set menu than you will find in Quito but of course still very good value.. For me I was totally captivated by the fantastic local music they had playing - Andean Pipes ... Really excellent ... They had a CD for... More

Mi Otavalito fulfills a need for those looking for good moderately priced Ecuadorian food in a pleasant environment. The menu offers all the major meat groups as well as seafood and pasta. There was a large group when we got there and they all ordered pasta which looked very good. However, when we ordered the same, they had run out.... More

On our trip to Otavalo for shopping, the guide showed us the location of this restaurant and highly recommended it to us as to having good food and reasonable prices. One aspect that the guide pointed out to us was that this restaurant made it a point to wash the vegetables very well, something that most restaurants in the area... More

We were in Otavalo for a few days, for the Market, the Condor Park and the train/bus trip "Ruta de la Libertad" and wanted to try some authentic local food. "Mi Otavalito" was recommended by many reviewers on Trip Advisor and the young man at the tourist office at the corner of La Plaza de Los Ponchos also rated it... More

Good Ecuadorian food in a rustic atmosphere. Big groups would have room at this venue. Prices are moderate and service is good

Was taken here with some friends for my birthday for dinner. We all had something different, but everyone's meal was super! A fairly varied menu and the flavor was better than the average Ecuadorian fare. When we went to pay, because it was my birthday, I was given one of my margarita's on the house! That was a first for... More

Wow, I read about the restaurant in the lonely planet and as I passed by I asked for the menu. The menu of the day cost 8 US $, but it's worth every centavos ;-) I got first toasted corn with a good spicy tomato dip, then empanada, pineapple juice, potato-Soup with peas and carrots and sausage, followed by turkey-breast...

Went with a group of 7 for an evening meal. We all ordered different things and each of us really enjoyed our meals. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. We thought it was good value. Highly recommend for local food.
