It is one of our personal favorite places to eat in Vilcabamba. They make the kind of fresh hamburgers I remember from when I was a child with fresh lettuce, tomato, onion and a homemade meat patty. They serve very good cocktails made with freshly squeezed juice!!!!

Great food with feel of sports bar!! Timothy's reminds of me the bars back home! they have direct TV for live games and there is sports memorabilia hung all over the walls and neat decorations that the owner himself imported from outside Ecuador, this place is very original... the owner (and chef) makes great foods ranging from wings to burgers and specialty dishes to desserts as well - they also offer vegetarian dishes and fresh ground coffee and juices! Come check this place out!

Urku Warmy - Vegeterian food

Run by a lovely couple, Carlos and Silvia, this restaurant is a must try for vegeterians and vegans. The place is beautifully decorated with Ecuadorian artwork and mural paintings. I have not personally eaten there yet but I must say that the menu looks impressive and not at all pricey. Soup of the day, vegeterian pasta dishes, vegetarian burgers, quiche, salads and homemade deserts.

I enjoyed chatting with Silvia who emigrated from Chile with her husband Carlos 15 years ago. They have run several restaurants in Vilcabamba. She told me about her passion affair with cooking (she prepares all herself including the deserts), about ayurvedic diets, about diets especially designed to prepare people for ayahuaska ceremonies.

Location: Vilcabamba, central square, in front of Jardin Escondido
