Exquisite food in a stunning setting
A delight for the eyes and the palate
Dining at Mashpi offers another form of exploration and delight: discover the regions and customs of Ecuador through the fresh local ingredients in our gourmet dishes, accompanied by sophisticated wines or cocktails.
Discover the flavours of Ecuador
The Lodge’s towering Dining Room reaches up two-stories high, a dramatic setting for a lively gourmet experience. Here, Mashpi’s chefs draw from the diversity of Ecuadorian cuisine and ingredients, making the most of its location between the coast and the Andes: the best of both worlds.
Drinks to indulge
The Explorers’ Bar
The perfect space to relax while watching night-time creatures flutter by the floor-to-ceiling windows after a day of jungle discovery, the Explorers’ Bar is stocked with beers, fine wines from mainly Chile and Argentina, and premium liquor, and is manned by our expert barman.
Ecuadorian cuisine as an art form
Flavours of the forest
Mashpi’s gastronomic identity is inspired by the native ingredients and generous flavors of the forest, such as wild garlic, chillangua and other products. Our cuisine combines modern techniques and permanent research, while also paying homage to Ecuador’s rich culinary heritage.
Each dish is whole new experience
Discover the menu
Breakfasts are very informal and include fresh fruits from the region, breads, eggs any style, cheeses, hams, cereals, home-made jams, organic honey and muesli, and energizing tropical fruit juices for the day’s activities.
Lunch is deliberately light, with a changing menu every day, mixing a wide variety of fresh vegetables, soups, sandwiches and a mix of classic and contemporary Ecuadorian dishes. Ceviche – served in different styles – might well feature. Again, delicious and refreshing fruit juices are on offer, and, to end the meal, a buffet of delicious desserts.
Dinner is a more formal affair. The theatrical setting of the two-story dining room accentuated by the subdued floor lamps creates an intimate and romantic ambience. The dinner menu changes according to season, and could include chicken, beef, fish, seafood and vegetarian dishes, all accompanied by mouth-watering side-dishes made with local ingredients and prepared with imagination and flair.
