Tasty affordable authentic. Really a good combination. The luncheon special including a neat empanada with berry sauce, a pork main and soup and postre flan All for 7.50 each and served with a smile. Very interesting 1920's décor. A fine solid lunch and a view into Ecuador cuisine. Ps the complimentary popcorn plate starter was cute!

I made it my mission to try the shrimp ceviche whenever possible while in Ecuador - my personal quest to find the best recipe. I think I found it at Intu Huasi. The combination of flavors was perfect. The app portion was large and it came with a cute basket of popcorn and plantain chips. If you're touring around Otavolo... More

In town with a tour group and half of us walked in for lunch. Very good menu of varied and delicious local items. I thoroughly enjoyed a shrimp stuffed avocado. Very delicious and couldn't have been fresher. Wish I lived closer to this place! Also had wifi!

There was a wide selection of medium priced foods for dinner. Since we were early before 6 PM), the restaurant was nearly empty and the service was fast. All of the meals were large and tasty; the meat portion was too large to eat and was complemented by tasty side dishes . The tables and roses were lovely . We... More

There are fixed price menus for just a few dollars that include soup, a main course and dessert. The food is delicious but the portions are very small so if you're hungry, you may need to order two.

The local food is good and recognizable. The service is slow because the restaurant is busy. The soups are excellent and so is the avocado with chicken salad. We were robbed in the restaurant by people who were dining at another table. It's crowded and easy to get bumped. The owners were upset, but as with any crowded market area,... More

We ate here on a Monday nite just before Xmas, that may explain why there was only one other couple eating there. We shared a very nice cerviche starter, and each had an steak for mains, which while it was huge was very tough. The chips were soggy ! Juices good. The service was good, but no atmosphere. Ok value,... More

I went there for lunch and had a lunch menu - inexpensive - soup, fresh fruit juice, meat rice and vegetables (choice of 3 meats) and fruits for desert. Slightly out of the main road, lots of local people and workers seem to have their habits here. Recommended !

This restaurant has been in Otavalo for about 10 years, but has gotten better, new managers. I eat there alot. It is a large and very clean place and now there are about half locals and half tourists who eat in the place. A 5 course lunch (include large safe juice), which changes every day, is about $4. Many other things to choose from--steak, trout, chicken. They have live music every Saturday afternoon. The food is also typical Ecuadorian food, creatively prepared and the place is VERY clean. I am very picky and can attest to that!
