The restaurant and hotel is all about luxury and romance and this totally lives up to expectations. But then it gets better. Tony the goldfish greets you on your table and remains your companion throughout the meal (seriously- you have a goldfish in its bowl on your table - don't worry it's not part of the ceviche). Then the appetiser... More

One of the reasons we selected to live in Cotacachi was due to having La Mirage near our home for gourmet dinning. Recently, a friend hosted a private 75th birthday party and we were invited. The section of food was out of this world and the service was outstanding. We are never disappointed with La Mirage. I highly recommend a... More

La Mirage is a Hotel, spa, and fine dining experience. It never disappoints and the food is the best I've ever eaten anywhere. The service and garden atmosphere make you feel as though you are royalty for a time. Don't miss this experience if you travel to Cotacahi

I have eaten here on several occasions, with many different friends, and nobody has ever been disappointed. The setting (beautiful grounds with peacocks), the ambience, the service, the food - all exceptional. They now offer a fixed menu for $29.50, which a extremely good value for money. I have also stayed here one Christmas, and it was phenomenal. Not cheap,... More

This spa is a very unique spot - for services, special meals or just having a drink at the bar - it is a very special spa and I will go back anytime I am in town.

La Mirage is a gorgeous, exclusive property in a old-world formal setting. Formal, but not uptight - Ecuador's people are too nice to ever be uppity. The dining room is lovely! Great service, obvious that the staff, traditional indigenous people, had been trained in formal service. Amuse bouche, intermezzo were offered, appropriate cutlery, etc. Continental dining, not traditional Ecuadorian. Most... More

We had started our trip in Quito, traveled to the Galapagos, and returned to Quite for a few days before our departure for home. We had a day trip to Otavalos and Cotacachi that was just wonderful and this restaurant provided the best meal we had the entire trip! Just a hidden gem in a wonderful setting. The decor is... More

The spa services are wonderful (quality and price). The services are nice and staff is always so kind. Let me share something about decoration, its style is antique with a lot sculptures, antique furnitures, looks like “haciendas”. Please keep this in mind, if you are minimalist, maybe this environment are overload.
