We ordered the mixed paella and were delighted with it. We finished with a chocolate and moca cake and loved both of them. Beware, the sizes of the cakes are very generous.

Classy place for a nice drink, coffee and chatting. Cozy atmosphere. Nice service. It's pricy but worth it.

Enjoyed everything about our wonderful dining experience. It's difficult to find a good steak (lomo fino) in Cuenca. We both thought the abundant flavorful sauce made the dish amazing! Tranquil classical guitar music and friendly servers too!
