With dogs waiting with baited (dog) breath outside, perhaps a trumpet player or singer joining you half way through your meal, and staff who serve just as politely if you are having a coffee, a beer of a full slap up meal, this is one...More

I try to be nice in reviews, but this place does not deserve it. I know we do not always know what goes on in a kitchen, but this place nastily cooks food in plain sight. They may be playing with kids or animals, or...More

Ate here a couple times. Had the typical Ecuadorian almuerzo once (lunch of soup + hearty main course), and a chicken sandwich the second time. The lunch was good and fairly priced, within cents of the cheapest place in town. The sandwich was excellent and...More

This is one of the latest opening restaurants in Mindo, which means you can order at 9 pm or a bit later. The large wood fired dome shaped pizza oven is obvious as you go in, and produces really tasty, good quality pizzas. One family...More

Had an almuerzo here with a friend who lives in Mindo and recommended it. Good flavors and value for the money.

Solid ambience and service. Pizza was good and I disagree a bit with others who think it's expensive. Compared to US prices this place was a good deal. Nice location. Ate there twice. The pizza is better than the Ecuadorian dishes.
