We live in Cotacachi and usually take visitors here for a traditional well prepared meal. There is a choice of menu of the day or extensive menu choices including fish, beef, pork and chicken dishes. The food portions are very ample.

The place it's really nice, but the food is poorly done. If your are thinking of a good steak or filet mignon, just forget it. If you want just simple fries go for it and don't try the hamburguer its tasteless.
