Jeanine makes great marguaritas and is friendly. A nice place to go if you are from out of town and want to mingle with other expats

We discovered Jeanine's place in a funny set of circumstances. Once there we felt right at home. My boyfriend used to own a bar in Salinas, and I owned restaurants in the USA so we know what it takes to run great places, and Jeanine definitely has it!

Great drinks, poured perfectly, and impromptu karaoke sessions made this our go to bar in Cotacachi when we were there visiting. Can't say enough good things about this lady and her place.

I stumbled upon El Secreto de Jeanine and immediately felt like I was in an episode of Cheers - not surprising as it is an expat hangout! Everyone is so friendly and willing to share information.

This is not a restaurant - it is a bar! The drinks are also excellent (I didn't have one but the Margarita's were a hit!).

Jeanine (owner/host) is super helpful and has a wealth of information about Cotacachi (and Ecuador in general). This place is not to be missed!

Excellent food - best steak in town. A fixed menu and a bit pricier than other places in town, but worth the occasional splurge.
