There is no shortage of restaurants in Baños. Most cater to budget travelers and international backpackers, and serve a range of Italian, Ecuadorean, Mexican, French, Chinese, Mediterranean, and vegetarian fare at reasonable prices. If you are feeling really adventurous, you can try the local specialty, cuy (roasted guinea pig), which is sold from stalls near the market.

You can try Quilombo (tel. 08/5532-144), on Montalvo and 12 de Noviembre, for Argentine-style grilled meats, and Swiss Bistro (tel. 03/2742-262), on Calle Martínez, between Eloy Alfaro and 16 de Diciembre, for Swiss fondues and old-world cooking.
