Description: 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

The Dragonfly has an enviable location by the side of the Rio Mindo. Its most affable resident is an elderly Great Dane who lounges in the bar area. Seating is inside or outside and staff serve well presented food. Portion sizes vary form huge to small but the food is served with cheer. The artisan beer is worth a try, though more expensive than the Pils or Club. A relaxed atmosphere, you can linger and will not be pushed to move. They did bring the wrong meals and wrong drinks but still smiling.

Beautiful house in the centre of town with an idyllic terrace. The fajitas were good, but the pizza was very disappointing. The wine was mediocre.

The night we spent in Mindo we ate at The Dragonfly and were so entertained by the flitting-around hummingbirds while we had our delicious dinner, which was delicious thin crust pizza (Hawaiian style). The craft beer also was so mild and nice--we enjoyed that, too! The owner, Ingo, is very hospitable and social, and will give suggestions as to how to spend your time in Mindo. We loved this place and would have eaten there again, if we had had a second night in Mindo.

We wanted to get a quick meal on our way out of Mindo. The menu seemed a bit expensive to us when we arrived, but the portions were huge. I got the breakfast and my wife got a peach chicken dish, which was innovative and very tasty. Much different than what's usually on offer at local restos. The food came quickly. The carrot cake was good, not too sweet.

The coffee is excellent too. We wanted to eat here because we remembered observing hummingbirds here in years past. But they've since removed the feeders. We would recommend they reinstall them as they make the restaurant even more attractive!

Had lunch at Dragonfly Inn Restaurant on a recent visit to Mindo. My husband had the daily set lunch -- it was huge. If you add another bowl of soup, it could easly feed two people. Not being too adventurous, I opted for the Club sandwich. Both were okay.
