“CLOSED”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

This was a great spot with super fresh veggies, kind hosts/owners, and unbelievable pizza, but they closed in Sept 2013. The good news is that all the pizza equipment, recipes, and cook went to Trebol, so you can still get pizza on weekends.

“Great Little Place”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Run by two sisters, their daughter/niece and a husband, visiting here is more like visiting family then going out to dinner. They have an organic farm and the restaurant (only open Thursday through Sunday) is supplied from its bounty. The food is always fresh and delicious. We had their specials, Cuban sandwiches, and pizza. They are all very good! The place is small and packed tightly with tables and chairs, but it's worth the squeeze.

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

My favorite is there pizza. There is a wide variety to choose from and I have enjoyed everything I have tried on their menu. You know the ingredients are fresh and organic.
They usually live music, wonderful food, and the owners are the friendliest.
Great night out....or lunch!

“Our favorite restaurant in Cotacachi”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Cotacachi on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday you won't want to miss this little gem. The food is consistently delicious, organic and fresh from their own organic farm and very inexpensive. This family run hot spot is so friendly and accommodating you will feel like a guest and not just a customer. The owners are fluent in English and Spanish. If you would like to meet people as well as satisfy your hunger you could not pick a better place. I don't eat dairy, wheat, or sugar, and they always manage to make a special meal for me that is so yummy, I find myself longing for Thursday when they open again. Their pizza is the best in town and they offer a gluten free one as well. They sell fresh produce from their farm and we always buy from them. They host a needlework club, and tango lessons and so many musicians and iron chefs, that it has become like the town's community center. The beer is always cold and the food is always fresh. Don't miss this one!

“Come for the food, stay for the atmosphere.”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

My husband and I were thrilled to find this cozy, family run restaurant on a quiet street in quaint Cotacachi. The food is excellent and the service is even better. We were treated like family from the moment we walked in the door. Yes, their pizza is the best around but don't overlook the rest of the very creative menu. They have a guest "iron chef" on Saturdays so it's a fun surprise to see what will be on the menu. Their Cuban sandwich, which is always on the menu, is to die for. Casi Olivia and the wonderful family that own it has become a regular reason for us to come into town. We always come away with a full belly and a warm heart. Seriously, come for the food...stay for the atmosphere.
