Took a long time to serve the food but definitely worth the wait. A little overpriced. Try the Coma Diabetica.

Came here for breakfast a couple times. They have a fairly large crepe selection, both sweet and savory. They also have some other more American type breakfast options which looked pretty yummy. Moderate prices for Ecuador.

I visited this place for both breakfast and dinner. The food is really good. The only drawback I'd give is that the portion sizes for dinner were small. However the quality of food for the price was great. Good breakfast also.

If you're looking for good food at Montañita, this isn't a bad choice. The crepes are pretty good and decent-sized (especially the Coma Diabético). Breakfast food is also quite good and not expensive. Service is a little slow, though. Best part is location: right next to the cocktail alley.

We ate here for breakfast 3 days in a row. If you come here for breakfast (which I recommend), order the "montanita" which comes with 2 bolon (fried plantains with cheese) eggs, juice of the day, and coffee. This is how a bolon should taste like. Crispy on the outside, delicious on the inside. Satisfied my cravings. I have tried... More

To be blunt, this place is not a good restaurant. There are so many quality places around, choosing to eat here is a mistake, both for your wallet, and for your stomach!

Skip the overpriced pancakes and enjoy either their daily special or the steak, which are pretty good!
