Most restaurants attached to hotels are just OK; however Carbon has a huge grill in front where all the meet is grilled in front of you. Ribs, if available are terrific as is the rst of the Ecuadorian menu. Recommend anytime.

Service was poor and food didn't come as advertised. The meat was OK, but overall it seemed overpriced compared to other food we've had in Cuenca.

The hamburgers were huge but ordinary with excessive toppings. Potatoes were not french fries but deep dried chunks, crispy outside but mushy inside. Capucchino was cold--when I sent it back, the waitress took it to the kitchen at the back, added something hot (milk? water?)...More

The food was delicious, and the service was excellent! It was all pretty reasonably priced. They have typical Ecuadorian food, but also just great steaks.
