We had started our trip in Quito, traveled to the Galapagos, and returned to Quite for a few days before our departure for home. We had a day trip to Otavalos and Cotacachi that was just wonderful and this restaurant provided the best meal we had the entire trip! Just a hidden gem in a wonderful setting. The decor is... More

The spa services are wonderful (quality and price). The services are nice and staff is always so kind. Let me share something about decoration, its style is antique with a lot sculptures, antique furnitures, looks like “haciendas”. Please keep this in mind, if you are minimalist, maybe this environment are overload.

This was an unexpected pleasure. The staff is top notch, the food first rate, the facility, outstanding. We enjoyed the peacock shows at the window of the dining area. And a stroll in the garden after the meal is a must do.

La Mirage offers some of the best fine dining in Ecuador, and whilst you are in Cotacachi go and treat yourself to some great leather goods.

Cotacachi has several pleasant small restaurants, but NOTHING like La Mirage. While it may SEEM expensive compared to other local restaurants, it is worth every penny. The ambience, the service, and the food (not to mention wine) that you CANNOT get anywhere else is top value. Tip: go hungry. Go early and have a cocktail in the fabulous lounge... or... More

It is amazing to have such a beautiful place to stay and eat in a little town like Cotacachi. While it has lost some of its shine over the years, it is still well worth a visit, whether it is for Sunday brunch, a night away, or full spa treatments. The dining room is beautiful, whether you go on a... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of this dining experience. Our group of four had probably the best table - looking out onto the garden. We shared our dining experience with jose- a gold fish in a clear fishbowl - the novel centrepiece on our table. An appetiser was offered - served in a music box! We each opened... More

Quite possibly one of the finest restaurants in all of Ecuador. Attentive service and flawless surroundings make your dining experience here one to remember for years to come. Extremely reasonably priced menu compared with comparable establishments anywhere in the US.

Amazing ambiance and delicious food. Lush gardens with vegetation from around the world. Peacocks roaming freely. Crystal chandeliers and beautiful art and sculptures. Part of a spa. Appetizer is served in a music box! Great experience. High-end dining.

The food here is exceptional! Lunch has a large menu selection and I would recommend the local Ecuadorian dishes, especially the soups. The presentation and service is five star, professional but not pretentious. Very friendly staff and obviously very talented chefs in the kitchen. The surprises (amouse bouche) are exquisite as are the main courses and desserts. Exceptional use of... More
