Due to an early departure the following day, we did not want to wait until 7PM to have dinner at our hacienda restaurant. Fortunately, Pachamama is open at all hours and we opted for a late afternoon dinner here. It was a nice choice. I ordered a medium Hawaiian pizza and my wife ordered a hamburger. Both were great. Since... More

This restaurant is located in a hotel away from the market, but a beautiful oasis of good food and local decor. Good is delicious and locally-sourced with lots of vegan options. Beautiful outdoor patio is a treat in nice weather!

After reading the great reviews we had a high expectation of this restaurant. The hotel itself is lovely, but the food was very poor. We had 2 of their signature dishes. My spouse had the curry chicken pie, and I had the quinoa crusted shrimp, and they were both underwhelming and very bland. Both dishes had almost no taste, and... More

We started with a dinner here that was so wonderful, we came back for breakfast the next morning. Both meals were well prepared and the service was excellent. Our table was near the fireplace, adding to the nice ambience. The next morning we had a breakfast that no one could finish. The options were amazing, with vegetarian options that are... More

This is a friendly, relaxing place. Good food and lovely garden setting. Staff are always thoughtful and helpful. There is a nice fireplace and sitting area. The restaurant has lots of big windows, so it is bright and welcoming. Excellent vegetarian dishes and wine bar. The tomato basil soup and cucumber salad are superb, not to mention the custom made...

The food was excellent and the service was great. I had the quinoa-encrusted shrimp and my wife had 1/4 of a basil, tomato, goat cheese, and onion pizza. We met the owner who was very friendly.

I really enjoyed the sandwiches which were a treat and hard to find in other places in Otavalo. The desserts are the best, especially the chocolate cookie served warm with ice cream!

We had a good vegetarian dinner here, pricey but worth it. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had llaginpachos with a good side of veggies, and it was all very fresh and tasty. We were there mid-week and were the only ones in the restaurant, so our server was very attentive.

Fun, energetic ambience, good mix of locals and tourists, tasty food. Easy access in Otavalo. Mid-priced menu but lunch specials are a really good value.

Our fireplace lounge, outdoor patio and garden provide something extra for travelers, as well as our freshly-prepared, organic food with local ingredients. To top it off, we offer more vegetarian options than any other restaurant in town and many delicious meat options as well. But even if you're not a vegetarian, we have plenty of meat-based dishes and burgers to please meat-eaters as well.
