I try to be nice in reviews, but this place does not deserve it. I know we do not always know what goes on in a kitchen, but this place nastily cooks food in plain sight. They may be playing with kids or animals, or...More

Had an almuerzo here with a friend who lives in Mindo and recommended it. Good flavors and value for the money.

Solid ambience and service. Pizza was good and I disagree a bit with others who think it's expensive. Compared to US prices this place was a good deal. Nice location. Ate there twice. The pizza is better than the Ecuadorian dishes.

We ate here and had cheese sandwich, ham and chees sandwich and cheese salame sandwich. They were huge and tasted lovely. Also nice fresh juices. Not expensive and certainly recommendable
