We stayed at the hotel and had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. The food was very good. We had steak and potatoes for dinner and a simple continental breakfast the next day with incredibly fresh fruit and bread. The wait staff were very friendly and the views beyond amazing.

The was a return visit to wonderful La Estelita. You have a birds eye view of Ibarra that is breath taking. We took a friend for her birthday party. Most of us had the peppered steak that is wonderful and of course the famous banana split.

We recently celebrated a friends birthday high on the top of the mountain in Ibarra. Not only is the view not to be missed but the dinning is never a disappointment. I had the pepper steak again which is rolled in peppercorns and really a treat for a Texas gal. Our guests ordered a variety of different dinners and all... More

Great food. Spectacular views. The best way to experience La Estelita is to stay in the hotel, but you can easily go for a romantic dinner for two. The food is excellent, offering traditional Ecuadorian foods as well as some international dishes. The view is something to write home about. Great place to find romance and sip some wine while...
