I walked through the streets and found this place next to the poncho plaza. Its a nice place and I felt welcomed. I just ordered a Salad and this was a very good one. The food which get ordered from other costumers looked good as well.

We did get stuck in a corner, but being whitish and tall, you'd think we would be noticed. No way.. Another group at the table next to us -consisting of women - came in after us but got their beers before we were even asked what we wanted. The beers were ok, but we had a hard time to get... More

Went to this place with my girlfriend for our first hour in Otovalo, the staff was very friendly and they had a good selection of beer, even a few options that were brewed from the bar themselves.

Gathering here with friends for a few beers after dinner is always fun. The music was a "mix tape" of 60-70-80's. We like to play "who sings it". The staff is friendly and inviting. Great time!

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff. Perhaps most Americans want unseasoned poorly prepared food that reminds one of Luby's Cafeteria. This was my only disappointment in Otovalo. The next day, the owner recommended an inexpensive restaurant where locals go. Marvelous but I don't recall the name. Just ask.

We really liked this restaurant and would return but a few items prevent it from being (in our opinion) a better experience. Although the food was extremely good (I had the house salad and my companion a great burger) the ambience was a little to be desired. The music was blaring and it was hard to have conversation at our... More

We grabbed a pitcher of canelazo and watched the US vs Mexico soccer game. Fun atmosphere a couple blocks off the market.

Fun place to hang out. The drinks are good and the food is alright. There are lots of other travelers that come here, so it is good place to connect with fellow wanderers.
