Every time we go to El Mercado we remember why we return. Although the amount of food served is nothing like the large portions you receive in most restaurants in Cuenca, the food is outstanding in flavor, texture and presentation. The filet mignon rivals the best I’ve ever eaten in the world. It is always extremely tender and delicious as is the mushroom sauce al lado. The prices are definitely “pricey” for Cuenca too, but sometimes it’s just worth it to enjoy the high quality food and atmosphere. The salmon with orange sauce is another favorite.

The place is amazing, in the best tourist area of Cuenca, beautiful decoration and space! The food is outstanding, I had a Fish ceviche and Shrimps with coconut sauce, both 5 stars!
The espresso is delicious and creamy, the service is very elegant and friendly.
If you go to Cuenca you must visit this place

We've eaten twice at this place. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is very romantic. Great for a special event. The food is pricey but well worth it. Try the T-bone tablita for two. Best T-bone I've had in Cuenca.
