Otavalo is filled with large restaurants with out many patrons. I ventured in, was the only person there (early in the evening) and enjoyed a delicious grilled trout meal.

Mi Otavalito was my favorite meal in Ecuador. Amidst the hustle and bustle of Plaza de Ponchos, Mi Otavalito is a pleasant respite. My pepper steak was absolutely excellent, easily the best I had of 4-5 well-reviewed restaurants in Ecuador. I strongly recommend Mi Otavalito!

Good service, tourist friendly and, as a local, the dishes were as good as any good local restaurant (although a bit pricier). In my opinion it is worth paying extra for the ambiance, good service and good portions. Tourist trap? Yes, but a good one.

This is a very nicely decorated restaurant, except for the mounted cow heads. Meals are very good, large and well priced. They also play indigenous music and have live music Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
