This restaurant was ok. I wasn't impressed as I was disappointed with my meal in particular; I ordered the spicy, blackened fish. It was neither spicy nor blackened. Either they messed up the order or don't know what that means exactly. My wife loved her shrimp tacos. Their fresh orange juice was amazing.

I found this place lovely and the variety of dishes were great! Did not expect to find a place like this in Cotacachi. The music could be better.

We ordered a bit of everything among 13 people and all of us were amazed. We enjoyed this healthy food with plenty of veggies. We recommmend anything with quinoa. The staff is also very kind and helpful. This is a great spot if you want to eat something different to the typical local food.

Solid Rock is owned by Santiago and his wife Veronica. They serve comfort food, Ecuadorian food, and ice cream along with empanadas, juice, and the occasional open face Turkey sandwich. The quality and service are great. This is a wonderful place to connect with other expats and the food is always good. Check out their breakfast items available all day.... More

This restaurant caters to American food and they excel at it! Their morning Veggie Scramble is a huge serving of eggs with tons of veggies added. We love it! For afternoon or evening meals they have plenty to pick from. The Chicken Pot Pie takes longer to get as they make it and bake it for you....with a wonderful lite... More

The food was great. Kids had chocolate chip pancakes for a taste of home. I enjoyed the curry chicken with rice. Excellent service. Very friendly. Served popcorn while we waited. Would be 5 stars but in my opinion, was priced slightly higher than what I expected, likely since it caters to us expats/gringos. You can draw your own conclusion about... More

Serendipity bills itself as an American style restaurant, but it is so much more. From nachos and tacos to lasagna and fettucine to tempura, it really is an international café. Of course they do have U.S. favorites, like meatloaf, barbecue, and hamburgers, too. And great soups and sandwiches. Several vegetarian options are available. You can finish off your meal with...
