Review of El Sitio

El Sitio
Ranked #2 of 48 Restaurants in Mindo
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$3 - US$12
Description: New Location and New Name: I’m proud to notify that I’ve moved into to a bigger location (just meters away), and my restaurant’s new name is “El Sitio”. The address is as follows: “Bugambilias, 9 de Octubre y calle Sucre (diagonal to Banco del Pichincha’s ATM machine). We are offering an extensive menu, which includes a wide range of options, from traditional Ecuadorean food, through vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose free and custom made dishes. As a complement to our ambiance, during certain days of the week, we are harmonizing the food time with melodic trumpet live music. We will be glad to serve you in “El Sitio” and would like to extend our gratitude for all the welcoming that El Sitio has received. All my best, ~Chef Willy

This restaurant is just lovely. Willy, the chef, was so friendly and made us feel so welcome. He stayed to have a chat with us even though we barely speak Spanish. The portions are huge and really well priced. The food was delicious - I would have eaten here every day if I was staying for longer!

Thank Georgia G

For 3,5 dollar I ordered the granola with yoghurt and fresh fruits. Breakfast was served with free coffee and a fresh pineapple smoothy.

Portions were big enough to feed 3 persons and food was very fresh and tasty.

Definately worth the visit!

El Sitio probably has the best steaks in town. The staff are friendly and put up with my terrible attempts at Spanish, but in common with many restaurants in Mindo, they are understaffed and the food takes a while to arrive. Worth the wait though for great food.
