I stayed here and had two meals -- dinner and breakfast. The steak on the rock was recommended and fantastic. Breakfast was very good and healthy, too.

We liked the place and decided to stop by for lunch hoping to get local food. I worked in the catering business around Europe and I can say that the Dragonfly inn menu and prices are the same. We got nachos and sandwiches. The nachos tasted like the crisp we usually buy in a shop and the sandwiches on the... More

We weren't feeling very hungry and opted for some light meals: soup of the day and a bagel. Everything was very tasty. Only remark is that our 3 dishes weren't served at the same time.

The place is the restaurant of the Dragonfly hotel. It's located near the river and they have nice and relaxing semi outdoors tables. It has a very good selection of dishes in the menu. Ordered seafood pasta and mushroom pasta. Both were very good. They have local craft beer a little bit more expensive that the common Pilsener (Ecuador beer).... More

We stopped in for lunch between hikes. It was absolutely yummy. Great soup (an Ecuadoran staple) followed by delicious entrees for us all. And several hummingbird feeders around the outdoor seating area meant many fun to watch guests joined us.

Very lovely setting, good WiFi and good location in town. We had a coffee, a plate of fried plantains and a soda water for just under $10. We were served very promptly, waiter was kind, and coffee was good. We are on a budget, so didn't choose to eat here.

We went here for dinner one night and it was great. We arrived there at 5 and ended up leaving at around 7:45........ The owner came and sat and talked with us which was lovely...... The food was amazing......and portion size was big........... i recommend trying this restaurant if you are in Mindo.

Very expensive drinks!!! I really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony to watch the hummingbirds. The creek was running fast and we were surrounded by vegetation. The drinks were good, but $21 for 2 drinks is steep. Overall the restaurant is a 4, mainly for ambience.

Our spacious and bright restaurant is divided in two parts. The front is overlooking the main street of Mindo, and the back is located on a covered terrace right next to the flowing river.

A la carte is offered 7 days a week, with a wide variety of national and international dishes.

We also serve a typical "Almuerzo" daily, which is a set 3 course lunch made to the Ecuadorian taste.

We are trying our best to be as organic as possible, and to keep the impact of our kitchen on nature as low as possible. You will not find straws, to go containers or disposable bottles. Our commitment is to leave this world a bit cleaner every day.

Also in our front restaurant area, you can find fine chocolates, coffee and other crafts to take home as presents or for your sweet treat sitting on the balcony.

Reservations for groups are welcome, we can serve a la carte or make a special set lunch/dinner tailored to your needs.

We accept MasterCard and Visa for your restaurant bill or gift shopping
