Description: With more than 20 years of operation Villarosa its a Classic in Cuenca
Reviewed 15 June 2015

Went there for an evening meal based on an advertisement in a tourist brochure found in the hotel.
Rather Chic! Therefore asked for the price list first before sitting down. Not at all what you would expect from the interior and the attention the personnel pays to you when you enter. a bit above the rest but with a level well above. and what we missed the most during our trip...a list of wines (what they realy have not only on the list but in reality).
The service/attention is perfect. The food delicious, well decorated, the interior beautifull. In fact not what you would expect at the 12th block of Grand columbia, what is already a bit away from the Grand Place of Cuenca and wher you take care when leaving the restaurant. strange enough apart from us there was only a group of tourist what had to take the menu with purified water... and those who paid for ... a glass of wine. New... or not yet discovered. In our opion... a very clear GO! GO!..if you are in Cuenca.
p.s. Ceviche is not on the price list, but they make it very well for a decent price. we should not have taken a desert as the main dish was enough but we enjoyed the place and ate it and afterwards felt too full (our mistake). Panacota cheesewith red fruits. wonderfull but too much calories!

Located in Cuenca's historic center, this restaurant is considered one of the best places to eat while in town.
Great service, very kind staff and a cozy atmosphere.
The food is extraordinary, and they have a great variety of dishes.
Visited them twice this year, and we are planning on visiting them again soon.

Very nice. Very good. Exceptional. The steaks and the risotto are the best. Try the desserts. Nice place to eat and have a drink

I've been here many times since 1997, and always it has been excellent quality food and service, Menu is international, with North American items and Equadorian specialties. Salads are excellent. Wine list is very good, but a bit pricey. An old house made into a very comfortable restaurant. I highly recommend.
