“Good Food, but a bit pricy for the area”

When we first came to Cotacachi several years ago, this was our favorite restaurant, but it has doubled its prices. Maybe because their main business is weddings, and other functions, so they do not depend on the restaurant business. We would eat there more if they would just offer specials, or lower prices sometimes.

Stopped here for lunch. It was quite tasty, and was typical Ecuadorian cuisine. The staff was very attentive. The fresh orange juice was delicious. If you are feeling adventurous, try the guinea pig, it's presentation is quite a jaw dropper. I just could not bring myself to try it, but maybe you would want to.

One of my favorite restaurants is EL LEÑADOR. It is located between Sucre and Juan Montalvo streets. This is a quiet place to enjoy it with family, with delicious typical food and calm atmosphere, when I am going to Cotacachi I always visit this restaurant, I think it is the best traditional restaurant of Mediterranean cuisine in this city.
This restaurant is small, for this reason reservations are recommended on weekends. The furniture and atmosphere is very comfortable also the waiters always seem to be in a good mood and are very friendly to the customers. In the entrance of the restaurant, guests can see the tables and some old decorations in the restaurant for this reasons is very original to this place.
In my opinion, the service is very attentive and fast the food very well presented, in generous portions and with an excellent taste. Although the prices are a bit high the overall quality of all products justifies it.
Totally recommended for a family visit or to leave a good impression of foreign tourists.

We were recommended this place by some locals, and we were glad we went. We visited twice in the week we were in Cotacachi, and both times we were treated wonderfully, and the food was spectacular. Finding good steaks in Ecuador is difficult, at best. This place has some of the best we have had here. Keep up the great work. Make sure to step outside and visit the garden and aviary for an added bonus.
