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.

Lovely lunch in the centre of Cuenca. We ordered the vegan burger with cheese and shared between 2 (enough for 2 if you're just peckish). Good value with some nice complimentary juice shots.

One of those places you would miss if you are driving. Definitely walk around the core of the city to find it. The food is extraordinary, the chef very accommodating and the prices aren't bad. We have multiple vegan requests and were very well taken...More

My expat friend brought me here for my first meal in Cuenca. It was a delight. The chef/owner is a whiz in the kitchen. It was suggested that I try the specialty of the house (Thai noodles with shrimp) and it was a hit. I...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.
