The things that are hard to find are often most precious. And this goes definitely for Venga too! The food is exquisite, and the staff is very attentive. Venga (pronounced Benga) means come in Spanish. And if you are looking for a good Culinaire experience, you should definitely "Venga".

This small but very unique restaurant is quite out of the way but so worth the effort to get there. Food is exceptional as is service. This is the best seafood I have had in Ecuador. The gourmet chef outdoes himself for every item on the menu. On a Thursday night, we were the only 4 customers in the place and were treated like special guests. The deserts looked like they came straight out of Paris. If you are in Cuenca, you must try this restaurant

A little out of the way but an easy taxi ride. Great seafood. Try the catch of the day or seafood stew with large shrimps. One of the two best meals I had during my 4+ weeks in Cuenca. Nice owners.

A charming restaurant with a contemporary flair, Venga Gastrobar, offers novo-ecuadorian dishes. Chef Javier has trained in the best cooking schools and restaurants in the world. It is a family owned and operated restaurant. Javier prepared our meals while his wife was our server. We found his dishes unique and tasty. When considering the quality of our food the prices were fantastic! I am always looking for restaurants to take visitors to and this one makes the list.
