Review of Inty Huasi

Inty Huasi
Ranked #35 of 72 Restaurants in Otavalo
Cuisines: International
Description: This restaurant has been in Otavalo for about 10 years, but has gotten better, new managers. I eat there alot. It is a large and very clean place and now there are about half locals and half tourists who eat in the place. A 5 course lunch (include large safe juice), which changes every day, is about $4. Many other things to choose from--steak, trout, chicken. They have live music every Saturday afternoon. The food is also typical Ecuadorian food, creatively prepared and the place is VERY clean. I am very picky and can attest to that!

We ate here for lunch after shopping at the famous market just around the corner. The food was solid and well-priced. My only criticism is that I ordered chicken, yet I couldn't tell what part of the chicken they gave me -- the liver?

Fresh roses grace the tables in Inti Huasi where a mostly local crowd samples their `menu del dia´ in a cozy, well-run establishment on Plaza de los Ponchos. The choices are ample for the lunch and on the all day menu, and the portions are large and well-served. Best place to savor all the favorite local dishes and convenient when in downtown Otavalo. It fills up at lunch.
Some of our favorites were the meat-filled empanada, sopa de locro, sancocho de res, their ají hot sauce made with tree tomatoes( not too spicy), and banana split on the menu for dessert. Figs in conserve with local cheese is another dessert and favorite with Ecuadorians.

Directly across the street from the Plaza de Poncho at street level is this authentic Otavalean place with yummy food and luscious fresh fruit drinks. Their "plate of the day" lunch is a real bargain and quite filling. Good service and food in a lively place.

We are at the restaurant a couple of times. Overall, we were very happy with the food and the staff. The food was fresh and tasty. The prices were reasonable considering the amount and quality of food you get.

I paid 6.50$ for the '5 course' menu del dia. It is possible to have two courses which would make this slighty better value.
The food was ok at best and service was poor- unfriendly, rushed when available and absent most of the time. It seems otavalo is more expensive than elsewhere in ecuador but for less money better options are just next door. Wifi was advertised but didn't work.
