This place makes you think you’re not even in Cuenca. Very unique place with many choices not found other places. Baked potatoes, nice steak, good sandwiches, and good fish and chips.

Never had a bad meal! Even when they are busy. Pretty location, huge portions, open on Sundays which is nice, staff are always friendly and accommodating. The Chicken Parmigiano and Pannini's are very satisfying. Oh don't forget those cinnamon rolls !

As vegetarian this place is a great option, the Mayu vegetarian burguer tastes amazing, with fries and salad that are a great companion. It offers two environments, indoors and outdoors! Totally recommended!
