We ate dinner in the small outside restaurant beside the hosteria. The food was good and moderately prices and there were pretty gardens surrounding the place. It was night so we couldn't see the rest of the grounds.

In my opinion, someone needs to take over this place and make it nice again. It has potential, but nobody to really care. You won't die there, but it lacks so much, for the price. Not worth it.

We enjoyed very good vegetarian lunches and very economical prices. Their lunch specials had one vegetarian and one non-vegetarian option with excellent soup and fresh juice. The chef took great pride in pleasing his customers.

Been here twice and was disappointed both times by the food. Table service was friendly and prompt. Food was only average in presentation, quantity and quality. With so many other high quality places in Vilca Escondido needs to step up their game.
