We stopped here for lunch. The food was very creative and high quality. The view is amazing which adds to the experience. There are vegetarian options.

Unfortunately the service was terrible, the food was old, and the cups smelled. The view is amazing and apparently the only reason they get clients.

After a very hard and long hike I did so much enjoy an espresso at Café del Cielo. The view is wonderful and the service is great.

Family had a very good experience here. We had 3-4 different meals and all were good / everyone liked their meal. Service was good and the view was excellent. A great place to stop for lunch or dinner in route to the Casa del Arbol.

Another great view of Baños! Placed among other nearby attractions such as the spa and the hot springs make out of this cafe a MUST to complete your Baños experience. Recommend for a day to relax from the outdoor activities.

Just called in for a quick lunch which was absolutely fine, nothing special but the view is remarkable, you just cant keep looking across or down into the valley at Banos and its environs. Memorable.

This seemed to be a recurring thing at some of the restaurants in Baños. The food was actually really good, but the service is not as good. They were in a hurry to close and basically rushed us through our meal.
