3 of us went here tonight for dinner. Person behind the bar put on a kid's cartoon DVD and then disappeared. Half an hour later we had to go into the back room to get someone to take a drink order. That was delivered (in a reasonable time), but the waiter did not ask for a dinner order and again disappeared into the back room. (Note that we were the only customers in the restaurant)

After another half hour we again went into the back and had to rouse the mom from watching cartoons to come take a dinner order.

We all had ribs, and they were delicious (though taking another 40 minutes to arrive). Afterwards, we _again_ had to go to the backroom to ask for our check. A 10 y/o kid came out a couple minutes later and whispered in my ear "35 dollars" and disappeared.

We left the money on the table, unwilling to again chase someone down, let alone get a printout of why the bill was so high for 3 meals.

Just off the main square in Vilcabamba.If you're looking for American style burgers and BBQ meat this is your place.Service pleasant if a bit slow but we enjoyed our meal when it came. Music and decor a bit brash but there is some seating outside if you like things a bit quieter.

It's hard to get better food from anywhere in Ecuador at this price range. T-bone is big and tasty, chicken is flawless and fajitas with Timothy's ahi sauce are amazing.

Service is good, they ensure you'll get what you order. Even food restrictions where taken into account with ease. Timothy's have also self brewed dark beer which is way more better than Club Negra.

Decorations are fun to watch while eating. Overall the best place to eat in Vilcabamba!!

Timothy’s gets 5 stars with me because his food TASTES authentically like good typical American food. YES, that means Hamburgers, Ribs, Great Salads, Great Onion Rings and Fries, Icy cold Beers, excellent homemade hot sauce (similar but BETTER than Tabasco!) and an interesting atmosphere. Owner Jimmy has been around…studied at culinary school in US, worked in fancy hotels and American chains in Quito, and now he’s got his own gig going in Vilcabamba. Timothy’s Ribs and BBQ sauce were the BEST in Ecuador (and my hubby is a BBQ rib fanatic!) and my burger and fries tasted like ‘home’. The Onion rings were perfect too, a nice batter! Fair prices and good service. Highly recommended, especially for fellow Americans looking for their comfort food!

Food and drinks at Timothy's are excellent. Try the frozen passion fruit margaritas and the nachos. Happy Hour will make you VERY happy!
