We were the only guests on a weekday for lunch here. I had a very good spinach pie, which was served generously with delcious green beans in a sauce, cucumber salad and french fries. A lot of food for not much money. They served the delicious Ecuador fresh juices as well as a burger and beer if you want. Nice…

We had the good fortune to visit Otavalo 3 times since 2011. Each time we returned to La Posada del Quinde because of the great hospitality, wonderfully friendly and efficient staff, and incredibly helpful owner. Breakfast at Cafe Pachamama, included with the room, was a wonderful way to start the day, sitting in a sun-filled room, watching the hummingbirds in…


“An quiet oasis in Otavalo”

Reviewed January 7, 2013

We’ve had several lunches here with consistently good food. You sometimes wait a while as they must make everything without a microwave which is fine. There are lovely garden views and the food is worth the wait. It’s a very clean place with fresh food deliciously prepared at great prices.

We stayed at La Posada del Quinde where this restaurant is located and found the food here to be excellent! My favorite was the enchilada casserole which is actually a vegetarian dish. It was so delicous I ordered it twice during our stay. Breakfasts were hardy and served with a wonderful array of local fruits and the coffee was tops…

We happened on Pachamama by accident, looking for a restaurant that had been recommended, but closed. What a nice surprise when we walked into this beautifully laid out restaurant.

We had all three meals at the Cafe Pachamama during our week at the hotel. They were all excellent! Great service and served beautifully. But you can’t have a meal there without having the brownie and ice cream!!!

Great food with an inventive menu – abundant vegetarian options and good use of in quinoa in many dishes – the llapingachos with lentils were very good. Service is also top notch, and the atmosphere is lovely with a fireplace. Good soups, salads, and different foods than you find elsewhere in Otavalo and other places in Ecuador. Ate there several…

My friends and I ate at the restaurant at this hotel in August 2012. We had such an amazing meal that we came back a few nights later! In addition to the food being fantastic, the service was great and extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend that visitors to Otavalo visit this restaurant.


“Great Place To Eat”

Reviewed October 11, 2012

With a very weak stomach, I have to be very careful what and where I eat. While staying at la posada del quinde and visiting Otavalo, I only ate my meals at Cafe Pachamama. The food is very fresh and seasoned just right. The service is also great. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.


“Lovely ambiance, bit out of the way unless staying in the hotel”

Reviewed October 9, 2012

I was craving something besides the typical local fare so decided to give this place a try. Great service and lovely ambiance. It’s a bit out of the way unless you are staying in the hotel. Went for the chicken pot pie (I was seeking out comfort food) and it was tasty, but didn’t blow my mind.

The food and drinks were wonderful. We loved the folklorico music on Friday night. It is located in La Posada del Quinde, a great bed and breakfast that can meet all your needs. It’s within walking distance of the market if that’s on your agenda.
