I really enjoyed the sandwiches which were a treat and hard to find in other places in Otavalo. The desserts are the best, especially the chocolate cookie served warm with ice cream!

We had a good vegetarian dinner here, pricey but worth it. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had llaginpachos with a good side of veggies, and it was all very fresh and tasty. We were there mid-week and were the only ones in the restaurant, so our server was very attentive.

Fun, energetic ambience, good mix of locals and tourists, tasty food. Easy access in Otavalo. Mid-priced menu but lunch specials are a really good value.

We went here based on the raving reviews and we were disappointed. We went around 2ish, there was only of two of us there. We ordered a lemonade and coffee. We had to ask for the milk twice. My boyfriend ordered a Mexican vegetarian dish and I ordered a vegetarian lasagne. Instead they gave me the beef lasagne. Mistakes happen... More

Lovely lovely space--open and inviting. Had a great quinoa soup. Big assortment of foods--all organic and caringly prepared and served. If you want an elegant tuna fish sandwich, this is the place to go.

Good clean place...not a huge selection but was a nice place. Garden is quite pretty. We had lunch and were the only ones there. It is part of a hostel which looks quite clean and inviting.

I'm not vegetarian but it was a welcome change to the usual rice, meat, plantain and beans. That being said the food wasn't outstanding, I had a feta and tomato tart, which was good but under seasoned and lacking in a bit of flavour. The same can be said of the accompaniments. My partner had lentil stuffed peppers, which again... More

There is a nice fireplace where we had a drink first. Then we enjoyed a very good dinner with some local, as well as some international dishes. Very friendly and attentive service.
