Hacienda Pinsaqui Restaurant is an elegant big room with a view of the Hacienda gardens. The restaurant is decorated with a mixture of antique furnitures and local traditional indigenous touches. The food we ordered was delicious. I was treated by a friend so I don't know what the prices are. One thing I know for sure, is that I will... More

A beautiful spot to have lunch near Otavalo. Great food and service. The hacienda is beautiful and the grounds are so peaceful. Definitely worth the stop.

We ate lunch at this Hacienda and then explored the grounds which are pretty amazing - flora and fauna alike. The drive into the hacienda was impressive and I would guess people staying there would feel very well taken care of. The restaurant was relatively quiet when we were there, the service was equally quiet and efficient.

We stayed here for two nights. It was very comfortable. It was cool, but each room had a heater, so we were fine. We ate several meals here while we were staying at the hacienda. The food was excellent. It is an old hacienda, so we walked around the beautiful gardens and toured the house. It seems to be family... More

We had just a lunch stop-over in this hacienda after touring the Ciucocha laguna, so we did not stay in the Hacienda itself. The interior is nicely decorated with an Ecuadorian touch.. Blue and white are the main tones. As a starter “Locro de Papas”, a potato soup with avocado and cheese was served. It was good but not the... More

We stopped here for lunch. The portions were enormous. I really enjoyed the shrimp and avocado starter, and this would have been enough for lunch! The trout was very good.

We were part of a large group so expectations should not be too high. My wife and I both had chicken. Mine was so tough I only ate two bites. My wife's was not cooked adequately. A local musical group was playing so loud it was hard to talk.

Stopped for lunch after the Otavalo Market at this "nice" Hacienda. The Hacienda is quite small and after coming from another fantastic Hacienda, it was a little disappointing. However, the lunch was good, basic menu but not bad food. Nice to go and see after the market. A little better than average.

This is known as the oldest hacienda in the region, if not in Ecuador. The owners continue the tradition of fine horsemanship with beautiful barns and horses. Lunch is pretty good, a little rushed because there are so many people.
