This is the nicest and cool cafe in the Baños town. It seats below the pool of the hotel which is located strategically within the mountains. The view at night is great, it is like when you are in a plane landing at night and see the city lights - there is a terrace outside as well. Many items in... More

Views were unbeatable. Food was good. A little more pricey than other local options but worth the splurge for one meal to enjoy the view.

So this place is about 6 km outside of Banos but oh so worth the drive to visit. The setting is beautiful. The restaurant itself is spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The huge windows allow one a view of Banos that is spectacular. I was able to find vegan options on the menu that were quite good. My friend is... More

Amazing views of Baños! The café has large windows which allow you to enjoy the great views. We got a milkshake and a juice. $6.40 for the two. Both very tasty. It does food also and has a good menu.

This is a good place to enjoy a nice coffee drink with a view. A large variety of espresso drinks offered, as well as hot chocolate, juices, smoothies, and cocktails. A bit on the expensive side as this is part of a luxury resort. The panoramic view of Banos is very nice. The cakes we tried were nothing to write... More

They only really sell sandwiches and lunch items no big meals but the Croque Madame that my husband ordered was divine. A cheese and ham toasted sandwich that was placed on a bed of creamy mushroom sauce... Yum! They don't cater for kids on the menu but as the menu is quite simple I'm sure ID's can find something they... More
