A popular restaurant that serves tasty and good sized meals. Try the fajitas or take the daily menu. Food will be served quickly and when you sit outside you may also enjoy the gurgling of a small rivulet. The coffee is excellent.

We had the Garlic trout. It was large enough for two people to share: Trout, Rice, French Fries, and vegetables. I tried the home brewed beer. It was a very smooth amber. The outside seating by the river was very nice and we were entertained...More

Patio nestled in tree abuzz with hummingbirds. Service slow but courteous. Trout was gigantic and deliciously prepared.

The setting--by the flowing river--and the décor/ambiance of this place are really fantastic. But, the food was merely okay and not particularly flavorful and the service was a bit disorganized (had a difficult time ordering of all things a diet soft drink or ice tea)....More

The food is great and portions are so large that you could easily split them. It is expensive, especially for Ecuador, but a good deal if you split something. I am a big eater and could not finish my meal. The service is not very...More

Our spacious and bright restaurant is divided in two parts. The front is overlooking the main street of Mindo, and the back is located on a covered terrace right next to the flowing river.

A la carte is offered 7 days a week, with a wide variety of national and international dishes.

We also serve a typical "Almuerzo" daily, which is a set 3 course lunch made to the Ecuadorian taste.

We are trying our best to be as organic as possible, and to keep the impact of our kitchen on nature as low as possible. You will not find straws, to go containers or disposable bottles. Our commitment is to leave this world a bit cleaner every day.

Also in our front restaurant area, you can find fine chocolates, coffee and other crafts to take home as presents or for your sweet treat sitting on the balcony.

Reservations for groups are welcome, we can serve a la carte or make a special set lunch/dinner tailored to your needs.

We accept MasterCard and Visa for your restaurant bill or gift shopping
