Great food with amazing views of the gorge

This restaurant is not far from the cathedral, towards the castle. Great food, very pleasant staff and amazing views of the gorge!

We were a group of 8 friends that had lunch at this restaurant. It is probably one of the most popular restaurants in Cuenca so we had to reserve a table several days in advance. The Group members tried out several dishes and everybody were very content with their choice. We will most likely go there again when we are... More

Beautifully designed restaurant with a terrace overlooking the gorge. Very high class restaurant with excellent service. The starters were delicious: Gazpacho, salted cod, fois gras with quince on rye crisp. My main course (lamb with grapes, pine nuts, and fois gras in puff pastry) sounded wonderful but the lamb was ground or minced and the texture was off putting.

This place was recommended by a friend from Cuenca. My husband and I had a lovely lunch. Every dish was delicious, the service was also excellent. The menu is diversified and offers multiple options if you want to taste local cuisine. If you are planning to go in the summer, the terrasse is closed during lunch (too hot), but it... More

Thanks to Tripadvisor reviews we visited this restaurant to ask about booking a table for dinner to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. However, as it was Sunday they did not do dinner, only lunch but the very helpful owner said we could come as late as 3.00 p.m. for lunch (we had had a large breakfast at the parador!). We... More

The unassuming entrance to Figon gives no impression of what lies within; the restaurant is an impressive space, beatutifully designed and decorated with original contemporary art. The owners have gone to great lengths to create a memorable dining environment. We ate at 9pm...when the restaurant opens even at the end of September..so it was dark, and a little chilly outside,...

Had a fantastic meal having opted for the full tasting menu. A collection of regional classics served with a modern twist. Wonderful location and the staff where on point all evening.

Staying in the nearby Parador, we were looking for local food at a higher quality than the Parador's own restaurant (which is reasonable). Figon is just across the bridge in the Old Town. The terrace provides fantastic views of the gorge and bridge and although it was chilly, the staff rushed out with blankets as soon as we began shivering.... More

Set in the old part of Cuenca close to the plaza mayor this restaurant has the most impressive views of Cuenca. It is in fact the old house of Spanish singer songwriter Jose Luis Perales, famous in the 70s (in Spain only.. I might add). The food is very traditional but with a modern twist and they have a good... More

Call in beforehand to reserve a spot on the terrace (terraza). The view is wonderful. Expect to eat dinner late in the evening; the evening light over the medieval gorge is beyond words. Really excellent presentation of the food. (It took me a while to catch on; in Spain you don't get the check until you ask for it. Do... More
