Had an almuerzo here with a friend who lives in Mindo and recommended it. Good flavors and value for the money.

Solid ambience and service. Pizza was good and I disagree a bit with others who think it's expensive. Compared to US prices this place was a good deal. Nice location. Ate there twice. The pizza is better than the Ecuadorian dishes.

I really enjoyed my meal here. Big bowl of soup, a plate filled with rice, salad, chickpeas, and yummy trout. Came with a tamarindo juice. $3.00 all day. Can't beat that! Good service as well. The pizza are tasty as well!

This place you should definitely visit when you stay in Mindo. The pizzas are big are very tasty. They prepare the food in front of you so you can see that they are very clean. Not expensive and good service

We stumbled in here after hiking in Mindo and we loved it. We had rice and lentils, the cheese sandwich (loved it!), salad and fries. ALL of it was good. Our kids especially loved the food. Great spot.
