I stopped by for some breakfast. They make incredible, fresh made juices - pricey, but good at $6 per. Grabbed a light breakfast of two scrambled eggs and toast for $4.5. Free wifi had a solid signal. Overall, not the cheapest, but good vibes.

We liked to go here for lazy lunches. Reasonable prices, good selection, excellent service. The lightly seared tuna was our best meal yet in two months in Ecuador. Burgers were good, lasagna notsomuch, pork steak ok, falafel way way too small to actually be called a meal. But the atmosphere is wonderful and everyone is fine if you take two... More

Loved the ceviche. I ordered the shrimp and octopus choice. It was enough for two people! Cost$8.00. Relaxing dinner with decent service.

I've stayed in Montanita for 3.5 months and tiki limbo was the only place I could get a decent Americano. It's a nice cafe with lovely deco and the staff is usually friendly though not very professional (as everywhere in the village). I haven't had food but friends that tried it said it was good. Of course tiki limbo is... More

Went here with my mother and brother, is a really nice place with great decor and nice ambience right in the heart of montañita they serve international food and great cocktails, I would just say service needs to improve because thy were slow taking our order and brought our drinks way after we already got our meals.

Living a few kms away we have a good overview of where to eat in Montañita. Restaurants come and go, chefs come and go. Going out with business people or international tourists Tiki Limbo is our normal choice. Wide offer, good food and professional service. Can be noisy after 10 pm.

Stopped here a couple times! The acai bowl was really tasty, as well as the falafel plate. I also tried the ceviche and was really pleased, especially with the plantain fries. The juices are tasty too, just be sure if you're trying to be healthy you ask for them sin azucra. Very nice spot, with good service.

This place was a pleasure to eat at. Nice atmosphere opened to the street but not so that it was intrusive. Good service, friendly helpful employees and with a sufficient quantity served. The breaded shrimp and rice was really well prepared. A decent wine from Chile was also available. Price might have been a tad higher than other places but... More

Seafood and traditional food was delicious. the generic or american style food was average. Definitely recommend sticking to the seafood and Ecuadorian dishes.

Dear Enderjjk, thank you very much for your comment because this helps us to make it better. Our prices are a bit more expensive than the average Montañita because we use quality raw material and we offer the best services of the village, all combined in a place with a special atmosphere and music. I hope you return to Ecuador... More
