“Local food”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

El Tigrillo serves up basic local fare for a reasonable price. For $2.95 , "el almuerzo" (lunch) includes a tasty freshly prepared soup, main course of trout, chicken, or perhaps beef with rice and a side dish along with a tasty salad and juice. Pizzas can also be ordered and are baked in their wood-burning oven. There are other items on the menu as well.
The cafe is on the main street so offers a nice view of the passing scene.

“excellent pizza!”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

The pizza is crispy and very tasty. maybe the best pizza i ate in whole south america. pina is fresh and the other ingredients were also very good. good oregan. it looked at the pizza of "el nomado" from which everyone writes here that it's the best, but it didn't look good in comparison to this one. for two persons you can share a familiar-pizza for 12$, which was very fullfilling. we ate there 3 times pizza because we're lacking good pizza in this part of the world ;)

the frutilla and the mango juice are very very good, durazno and mora not, because not tasty and sweet as they should be if the fruits are ripe.

fast service.

there is also ecuadorian food for example fish and meat with rice and sandwiches.
