We were on a day tour of Mindo and Cloud Forest and stopped for lunch. Our group of 12 Americans delighted in fresh fish,beef and chicken dishes that were prepared with Ecuador flair! Local beers were also enjoyed!

I had dinner here after a long day of birding. It was fantastic. I had the fajitas. They were absolutely delicious. It was a little more pricier then the other restaurants in town but I would say that it was worth it.

Loved this place! Great outdoor seating by the river, amazing fresh food, and home-brewed beer! They even had an awesome dog to pet! Try the trout in passion fruit and lemongrass!

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
