We had a nice evening here with well cooked meals. The fish dishes were particularly nice, but ask about spicyness first if you aren't good with too much heat!

Really loved how many different options there were on this menu. Was a bit disappointed about the lack of nut milk for coffee. Also, the food could use a bit more flavoring. But overall cute cafe and would eat here again.

One of the best restaurants in Banos. The food is excellent, with many vegetarian options, but it has also chicken and fish. The service is very good and it was the best place I had dinner in Baños.

The food I got here was up there with some of the best I have had on my travels in South America. The chicken dish was amazing and a nice change to how chicken is usually served in these parts. Price is also very reasonable!!

It's the ambiance as much as the food, the place is worn in and cozy. Had the trout, which was okay, and like many meals in Ecuador mre starch (rice & plantain) than I could finish. Broad menu--something for everybody

Cafe Hood was the first place we ate at upon arriving to Banos. We were impressed with their selection and choices of both meat and vegetarian dishes, however our meals were not over the top. Perhaps their vegetarians dishes are more impressive.

Had the nachos here, were listed as a starter but were super nice and filling. The restaurant has cheap prices, lovely out door seating and the owner is lovely.
