“Stay out of town without losing your shirt”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

My wife and I tried La Roulotte for a get away from the noise of Quito. It was amazingly relaxing. The rooms are cozy little gypsy cars, which are very clean, comfortable, and open. Ignacio was very welcoming, and spent a lot of time telling us about with birds flying around the beautiful open dining room. The food was amazing and definitely for the right price. We will for sure come back.

La Roulette is a lovely find in Mindo. The grounds are full of lovely plants and exotic birds. The cabins are decorated with lovely details. The beds are comfortable. The food is amazing! The owners are very friendly and helpful. They can help you set up bird watching trips.
It's a little bit out of town, which makes it a quiet and relaxing piece of paradise.

My husband, baby daughter, some friends of ours, and I stayed at this lovely oasis. It is located outside the town of Mindo, near several waterfall hikes, a butterfly sanctuary, river tubing, and incredible bird-watching. The folks who run the place are wonderful--welcoming, helpful, and available--but privacy is not an issue either. The food is fresh, local, and amazing--French influence. The restaurant is round and glass-walled for easy appreciation of the birds and beauty. We had better birding right there, than birding hikes we've been on. Just sitting in the restaurant one morning we saw Choco Toucans, Crimson-rumped Toucanettes, a Rufus Motmot, Pale-mandibled Aracari, and more. The rooms are charming and different--comfortable and private. We cannot wait to return many more times.

My husband and I were booked to stay elsewhere, but we happened upon La Roulotte by chance when we were looking for some lunch after a hike. La Roulotte is owned by a Swiss chef, Stefan and the food is absolutely spectacular, for the same price as 'ok' food in town. After lunch we found ourselves staying through the evening watching toucans, tanagers and other birds from the restaurant which is almost pure window. The staff hang bananas in the trees all around the restaurant and all of the beautiful birds come to have a taste. We ended up changing our reservation just to stay there. They have beautiful gypsy train-car cabins that are comfortable and private, and nice bathrooms with warm showers. The staff and manager are extremely friendly and helpful and can recommend hikes and tour guides if you'd like. Don't forget to ask Stefan about dessert, his specialty is pastry chef!

The food is excellent. The chef is french and it is among the best food I've had in Ecuador. The cabins are charming, clean, and isolated. All cabins are surrounded by a beautiful garden so there are birds everywhere you look. The staff is friendly, welcoming and helpful. I want to go back!

This is a lovely quiet place to relax and distress. The beautiful circular restaurant is an ideal place to relax sipping a fresh juice while watching the Toucans and Hummingbirds. The windows open out onto the trees so that photographers can take photos of the birds at eye level. Meals are freshly made. The Gypsy Caravans are beautifully built with high level bathroom fittings. It is 2/3 kilometres from town near the Butterfly farm –Mariposario.I ate in the restaurant but I did not sleep in the caravans. Instead I had a look inside and was very impressed.

We had 3 awesome nights at La Roulotte. The service was second to none, the food at the restaurant was brilliant (though portions were rather large!) and the rooms were gorgeous. You stay in one of 5 gorgeous wooden 'cabanas' that sleep 4 (two double beds) with private bathrooms. It is about a 30 min walk from town which makes the surrounds lovely the quiet. The large garden has a pond with frogs, fruit trees and lots of birds and butterflies flying around - a very tranquil spot. The hosts go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. We got a great packed breakfast/lunch to take on our birdwatching trip.

Overall we loved our stay and would highly recommend it!
