The food was good. The service was a little slow due to only one person serving and cooking. The place was cute, however we were bothered by flies which made our experience less enjoyable. They were busy, customers both natives and expats

This old standby is a hangout for gringos. Any time of day you can get a good meal and find a local who will happily help to make your Cotacachi experience worthwhile.
