Cafe Pachamama is not only the premier restaurant in Ecuador, but stands among top establishments world wide. Environment, stunning; staff, incredible & food phenomenal. The experience is perfect - warm, charming and so healthy for you.

This restaurant is owned by an American living in Otavalo. We found the food to be good, but not exceptional.. There was lots of English spoken here. The most English we had heard during our stay in Otavalo. The fireplace is absolutely delightful.

The menu is extensive and includes vegetarian items. The food is excellent and the service always comes with a smile. I stayed at the hotel for four days and did not bother to go out to another restaurant. There was that much selection and quality.

Cafe Pachamama is located inside hotel La Posada del Quinde, just five blocks from the Plaza de Ponchos market. Our fireplace lounge, outdoor patio and garden provide something extra for travelers, as well as our freshly-prepared, organic food with local ingredients. To top it off, we offer more vegetarian options than any other restaurant in town and many delicious meat options as well. But even if you're not a vegetarian, we have plenty of meat-based dishes and burgers to please meat-eaters as well.
