Great food (including some Mexican dishes) just one block from Otavalo's famous handcraft market plaza. Place is spotless! Wonderful owner (Yolanda Esparza) who sat down for a few minutes and visited with us. We've eaten there three or four times (almost every time we've been to Otavalo)

Perfect ambiance, delicious food and drinks at good prices. Very friendly staff. Nice surprise in Otavalo. They dont rush you. Good place to have a rest after a stroll in the city.

Excellent food and a very friendly and warm owner. Many different dishes including veggie dishes all with a Mexican flavour. The owner told us she was proud of her 'clean' cooking and I can believe that the kitchen is spotless and that she prepares everything very carefully. Highly recommended. Meals run about $7-8.00 which is high for Otavalo but well... More

After a morning of shopping in the Otavalo market, it was a nice place to unwind. NIce atmosphere and very friendly owner and staff. The food was delicious. I had the tamale and guacamole dip. My friend had the frajitas. Very good! Nice variety on their menu.

I have eaten at Deli Restaurant many, many times and have never been disappointed. The servers and manager are friendly and very attentive and the food is always made fresh, quickly, and is consistently delicious. The location is ideal and the prices are fair. I always get the very addictive Mochachino helado. It looks big enough to share, but it... More

We had some very good meals here. It is one of the more expensive places we ate at, which is not saying much as Otavalo in general is pretty cheap. But delicious food which great salads and side dishes.

This is a cute rustic cafe that serves a variety of foods. The hostess/owner was warm and inviting. My husband ordered the Chicken Quesadillas ($4.75) which were overly runny and tasted more like sour cream then cheese. I ordered the stuffed Avocado Salad with Tuna ($5.50). A large avocado half was filled with a generous portion of tuna salad which... More

This small restaurant is a nice place for breakfast as well as for diner. The service is good and the employees were nice too. Yolanda, the owner, is really charming and like to speak with customers. We recommand Deli Cafe. Chantal, Montréal.

This restaurant was the best restaurant of otavalo. The food was very tasty, but especially service and atmosphere were superb!! Another important thing was that the restrooms were extremely clean. This in contrary to almost all other restaurants in otavalo. Really a place to go to if you are visiting the indian market. Even the owner makes time to talk... More
