La Choza has been serving superb highland Ecuadorean food for decades, in my opinion it's a must for someone that wants to try the impressive array of options Ecuador has to offer. Try Rosero (a typical hominy and fruit drink) and the cheese empanadas (Empanadas de Viento)!!

Centrally located near the Swiss Hotel, you can get traditional food while listening to three musicians playing harp, guitar and drum. Open, clean and attractive setting, the food is very tasty and unique. We tried all the empanadas and the tamales.

La Choza is centrally located, within a block of the two parks/squares in the center of Ibarra. The cuisine is local (lots of chicken, rice, corn and vegetables; not much spice); the soup/stew is especially good. Their service was very friendly and prompt.

A family-owned restaurant just off the main square and park in the center of town. Good Ecuadorean food - the soup is especially good. The service is prompt and friendly. Casual atmosphere. Also of note: the restaurant funds a number of community programs, such as a youth group, which meet during off-hours and upstairs in the same building. A great model for sustainable services. The family also owns an internet cafe just to the right of the restaurant.
