Located one block off Plaza de Ponchos, this restaurant serves Ecuadorian style food. The service was good and although our server did not speak English, the menu had a limited description of the items in English. We had the chicken pasta, the pork fritada and...More

We stopped for lunch. The BBQ pork was tender and tasty. The trout with shrimp sauce was very fresh . Service was great. Live music was playing on Saturday. It was thoroughly enjoyable.

Try the amora mousse, it's delicious! Quaint setting, both locals and tourists. They close at 9 so get there in plenty of time.

Otavalo is filled with large restaurants with out many patrons. I ventured in, was the only person there (early in the evening) and enjoyed a delicious grilled trout meal.

Mi Otavalito was my favorite meal in Ecuador. Amidst the hustle and bustle of Plaza de Ponchos, Mi Otavalito is a pleasant respite. My pepper steak was absolutely excellent, easily the best I had of 4-5 well-reviewed restaurants in Ecuador. I strongly recommend Mi Otavalito!

Good service, tourist friendly and, as a local, the dishes were as good as any good local restaurant (although a bit pricier). In my opinion it is worth paying extra for the ambiance, good service and good portions. Tourist trap? Yes, but a good one.

This is a very nicely decorated restaurant, except for the mounted cow heads. Meals are very good, large and well priced. They also play indigenous music and have live music Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
