Carbon de Palo was closed by their owners in January 2017. We haven't found a good replacement yet. We live in Otavalo.

We were stuck in streets of Otavalo with 100$ bill only in our pocket. If you know whai i meen. No way to brake it in Ecuador. On market they don't have enough monney to do it and in bank they just look through you. We try in this restaurant and charming and wery helpfull owner helped us and went with us to the bank. Without success, unfortunately. But she made an effort, not demanding from us that after that we go to her restaurant.
Since we are after walking the city were very hungry, we decided to visit her restaurant. (Money in the end we managed to exchange with sympathetic saleswoman at Plaza del ponchos). The food was excellent, with the explanation landlady for every dish we tried.
And the prices are reasonable, even though we have the custom to go to places that are less "glitzy".
All in all, if you find yourself in Otavalo, I recommend this restaurant. You are going to get value for money, and a little more ...

This restaurant is a real gem. The decor is quirky and fun, with great attention to detail, and the wonders are lovely people. We chose the Colombian meal for 2 that was a combination of chicken, beef and sausage, plus lots of veggies and potatoes. It was barbecued very well, and unlike a lot of Ecuadorian food that lacks spice and taste, it was delicious. And all this for $8 for 2 people! Go and eat there, and they have a really good breakfast menu as well.

We returned to this wonderful family casual restaurant twice last week having last visited in July. Still the best burger in town. It has that charred smoky taste that is hard to find. My friend had a chocolate milkshake that he really enjoyed. Prices are very reasonable. Very good salads too.
