Quite possibly one of the finest restaurants in all of Ecuador. Attentive service and flawless surroundings make your dining experience here one to remember for years to come. Extremely reasonably priced menu compared with comparable establishments anywhere in the US.

Amazing ambiance and delicious food. Lush gardens with vegetation from around the world. Peacocks roaming freely. Crystal chandeliers and beautiful art and sculptures. Part of a spa. Appetizer is served in a music box! Great experience. High-end dining.

The food here is exceptional! Lunch has a large menu selection and I would recommend the local Ecuadorian dishes, especially the soups. The presentation and service is five star, professional but not pretentious. Very friendly staff and obviously very talented chefs in the kitchen. The surprises (amouse bouche) are exquisite as are the main courses and desserts. Exceptional use of... More

First time to La Mirage last week...grounds and dining room are beautiful. Food is excellent and the presentation is worthy of its 5 star reputation. Bit on the expensive side but, top notch so worth the cost. Also met the owner who took us on a tour of the resort...very nice touch. Repeat...definitely!

This secluded restaurant provides one of the most romantic atmospheres and sublime cuisine I have ever experienced. This is a must visit destination if you ever are in the close vicinity of the location. Actually well worth traveling here just for this single experience. The region provides several stunningly beautiful locations i addition to this Hotel / Spa / Restaurant!

Absolutely gorgeous restaurant in a garden setting. Even if you cannot stay in the hotel (which you should), a lunch or dinner at La Mirage is an unforgettable experience. There are many entrees to choose from and the food is excellent. They have a very good wine selection and desserts are sinfully good. Enjoy your meal while watching peacocks parading... More

Excellent high end restaurant. The service was great and made for an enjoyable Christmas dinner. There was a special for that day and we had many courses for a reasonable price. The food was wonderful and the presentation was superb. There are gardens with beautiful trees, flowers, and plants.

We booked in advance a beautiful table that overlooks the garden. The restaurant is wonderful. The service is excellent. Dishes are arranged like art work. For instance, they gave us as courtesy, a small humita (corn dish) which was placed inside a wood musical box. My wife tried the "cuy" (guinea pig type) and found it exquisite (not my type... More
