The restaurant looks like any of the thousands of restaurants on plazas throughout Spain. We ate at Mangana our first night in Cuenca. As it was a little chilly, the owner lent my wife a wrap to keep her warm. We had pisto manchego, gazpacho andaluz, and solomillo de cerdo a la brasa. The food is nothing fancy but fair... More

Only had drinks and tapas but what a great atmosphere there was in here! Long and narrow bar so it took us a while to get past the bottleneck however soon found a corner with leaning space. Beware of the olives as my partner smelt of them for 2 days after.

We had a small lunch break at this restaurant at the plaza Mayor. Service was unfriendly and slow. The food could not reach a good standard. Next time we will look for another restaurant.!

Great place, thought the food was delicious. Lentil stew, Jamon iberico, artichokes all delicious. Cheap and cheerful. Don't expect a luxury or fancy dining experience as this is very casual.

We enjoyed our meal while pleasantly sunbathing. - Friendly staff: Nice, friendly employees who explained us what we... More
