Why locals love it

The Pululahua is the crater of a dormant volcano that erupted around 2.200 years ago and it is one of the few inhabited craters! Can you believe that? There is a community of farmers settled in the valley formed in the caldera. It is a popular spot for locals to come to this restaurant with an stunning view!

Why you should visit it

The scenery is simply breathtaking and the restaurant offers a great variety of good meals mainly dedicated to promote Ecuadorian local cuisine. Andean flavors are combined with the view of this enigmatic and Ancient volcano.

Special tip

In order to get the best picture, it is recomendable to arrive before noon, because at 13h, an impressive spectacle of clouds is going to cover all.
