This is a shame to give this place a "3" scoring as the food was really tasty and excellent quality. My quandary was more with the very "average" service, apart from the young girl there how radiated a warm smile and happy attitude, the other staff members seemed a little despondent and lacking enthusiasm. On arrival we kind of wandered... More

I wasnt quite sure about this restaurant which is located within a hostel style hotel in Cuenca when I first saw it. But what a treat. The view was spectacular over the gorge and the food was excellent. I would recommend the Avocado and Prawn salad with the most delicious dressing. We had the duck which was fantastic and comes...

Not only was this our favourite place to eat in Cuenca, it's one of the tastiest meals we've had during our 9 day trip in Spain. Given the reviews on Trip Advisor and the advice from the person running our accommodation we initially headed to El Secreto only to discover it is closed for dinner on Tuesdays and all day... More

One of the best meals in Spain, sitting next to the window overlooking the gorge and the Parador. We started with olives and wine before dinner. service was a little slow, but pleasant, and we were in no hurry. Every course was a delight and not a bacalao in sight. The Fontal tempranillo in a 50cl bottle was exceptional. The... More

The view is great; the fried eggs with ham and potatoes were quintessential Espana; and the €10 bottle of local wine made the evening perfect. We met the owner and she recommended the brownie and ice cream for dessert and it was a fine recommendation. Very satisfying experience and quite affordable for the setting high above a beautiful cliff.

Stopped in for an early lunch (ordered a mixture of tapas). Good choice for vegetarians. Food outstanding. If you want a table by the window - and you do - it is worth making a reservation. Friendly service. Highly recommend!

We had the buffet breakfast here. What a beautiful Posada! We decided to stay for their breakfast and it was very nice to be there and enjoy the views into the gorge. It is a cold breakfast, serve yourself, and 9 euros. I guess we paid for the experience... If you don't need a big breakfast, you might like to... More

Reasonable, good quality, food and wine. Views from some tables across the gorge, and a small terrace that is open in good weather. You will need to book!

Would recommend getting here early for dinner and getting the best spot on the terrace as we did. The view is magnificent. We were also really impressed by the food and the Canadian lady who runs the place is great.
