OK experience but double billed.

The location was great. The service was fast and the food was ok. We were billed by credit card told it didn't go through then we paid in cash when we got home and received the bill the charge was there. Not sure if this is a common scam or a true accident.

Visited this restaurant twice on a short stay in Cuenca and had the 20€ menu on both occasions, the first one was 6 courses and the next evening we had the 7 course one. Both times the food was delightful and the service was great as well. Really great value for the money.

A very nice place, where you can taste traditional food of the region of LA MANCHA. Average price 7-8 EUR. Pay attention that usually in Cuenca's restaurants kitchens work till 16:00. Then they open after 18:00.

This is a busy restaurant which proves that the food must be good, and it was. We shared a seafood Paella for 2 that would have been enough for 4. It was a bit salty to our liking but the seafood was lovely. The service was attentive and the waiter had a great sense of humour and gave us suggestions.... More

We sat outside in the Plaza and watched the world go by and had a fantastic lunch. We opted for the 10 Euro Menu del Dia which was fantastic quality and value. Very friendly staff but very little English is spoken as seems to be the case in most of Cuenca. By the time we left every table was taken... More

We stopped here for lunch on a cold drizzly day. The restaurant was warm, inviting and pretty full. We got the menu del dia, and I started with hot chicken noodle soup, my husband got judias estofado (bean and sausage stew) which had a rich flavor and then we were brought mixed green salad and fresh bread. Our main plates... More

...or even in the old city. We hadn't intended to eat here but stopped by to have a drink before going somewhere else. Looking into the restaurant from the bar it all looked nice and there were several table full. We decided to try it.... My partner is vegetarian which can often limit what she eats in Spanish restaurants, but... More

We ordered the tasting menu even though we didn't recognise anything on there and I must say it was quite an adventure. Plate after plate of new experiences was brought before us. First there was a lovely smoked salmon salad, then something that tasted to me like the filling of canneloni. Next up was something a bit like cod and... More

Food was cold and tasteless. Very rude staff - treated us like serving us was an inconvenience. They advertised attractively prices menus out the front during the evening then when you sit down they tell you that was only for lunch and THIS is the dinner menu. Overall very poor. Eat elsewhere in Cuenca.
