We visit Cuenca two to three times a year. Tonight was the third (and last) time that we’ve attempted to try this restaurant. We always check the hours that they are open before we go and when we get there we are always told that...More

Quaint establishment with very friendly staff. The food was uniquely presented and all items were fresh. I think they should have item descriptions on the menu. What I thought I was getting and what I received were completely different than my expectations.

It is not a secret, that when you travel in Larin America, with very few exceptions, the food is bland. And there are not many veggies included in your almuerzos, unless your budget allows you to splurge. If you are craving a flavorful healthy meal,...More

I can't remember exactly but they were significantly less expensive than any other quality meals in Cuenca...and that's what brought us back again and again, as well as the great service and ambiance.
