Entertaining evening

The staff were lovely (they remembered us from an earlier visit), attentive, and solutions focussed: we observed Barbara smoothly deal with a situation where 35 turned up for a group booking of 25. The food and wines met our expectations - we recommend Restaurante Bien Porteno.

This place is definitely a hit. The service is very good (much better than the Spanish standard) and the quality of the food is very good. I had steak and my gf had cod (which she said was salty). 63 euros (shared starter, 2 mains, glass of wine each, dessert, tea, bread) which is good value compared to other fine... More

in the beautiful city of Cuenca, immediately next to the "casco antiguo", an elegant corner of Argentina. Very good service, juicy and tasty meat, dishes presented with style and attention. good selection of wines and spirits. Surely, in two weeks in Spain, as well as an unforgettable andalusian paella, our best dinner.

Stylish setting, excellent food and wine, Barbara ( front of house ) helped us through ....we have some Spanish but her English is very good. At just short of €70 for two, good value for money. This restaurant is... More
