A good view Oct 26, 2012
In need of refreshment and a sit-down after an hour or so of wandering around the market, we looked for somewhere where we might also get a view of the action, and found it at the Buena Vista, which lived up to its name! We climbed the stairs to the first floor room which is quite cosy – lots of wood, a small library of travel guides to browse, and bright cushions on the chairs. We secured a table near the window (there was just one other small group of people here at the time, though a couple more arrived before we left) and were pleased to find a good list of fresh juices on the menu, as by then we had already realised that no other cold drink came close to these for taste and refreshment in Ecuador!

Chris chose orange juice and I had passion-fruit, and both were delicious and served in large glasses. As we drank we were able to step out onto the tiny balcony and take some photos of the market from above and all the activity going on beneath us. Just the break from browsing and shopping that we had needed!

Healthy and tasty food at Buena Vista Restaurant Jul 11, 2009
If you are looking for a place with great view and healthy and tasty food, this is the one.

Buena Vista is located on the 2nd of a building on the edge of the Plaza de Ponchos (which is the main square and market) and it certainly lives up to the name (Good View). The view is great, specially if you can get a table on the balcony. From there you can not only see the surrounding volcanos, but also the crowded and busy market.

The interior is very cozy and the decoration made you feel at home. They have books to exchange and the furniture is charming.

Regarding the food, they serve vegetarian meals, also organic food is available, but you can also find burgers, sandwiches and some Mexican food, but all of the food is cooked in a healthy way.

We got nachos with guacamole and beans as appetizer to share. Then Lisa got a tasty veggie lassagna, the boys got a burger and a tuna sandwich and I got a tomato stuffed with cheese and spinach. So tasty!!!

The staff was kind kind and the atmosphere of this place is so great. I notice they also have a bar, but we didn't stay in town 'til late. Maybe I have to come back to try it, hehe.
yes, they have organic food
nice interior
