Not worth the hype

We went here because the guide book said there would be live local music on Friday night. When we arrived at 7.30 the band was setting up but the place was fairly empty. They apparently close at 10 so we didn't want to go too late... When we left at 9.00 the band was still setting up and there... read more

We have been in Cuenca 10 days and have been to this restaurant three times. The atmosphere is wonderful, warm and inviting. The menu is large and very interesting with many Asian offerings beside the usual fare we have come to expect. The Sunday brunch is absolutely fantastic and real value for the money. The owners and the chef made... More

*Place needs serious investigation* have over 1.5hrs of catastrophic film proving 100% this place is operating badly and should not be open. Wowsers, this place is a disaster waiting to happen. Serious lack of management and/or health and safety basics. Words fail me as to how terrible this place is, the food surprisingly ends up looking ok but on a... More

I dined here with my toddler, which is difficult at night sometimes, but the staff at the Eucalyptus were very welcoming and kind and friendly. We had a delicious appetiser with freshly prepared guacamole, hummus and babaganoush, potato fries and fresh orange juice. It was just right and even though my first impressions from the outside made me doubt its... More

Great eatery in Cuenca with a diverse menu, relaxing atmosphere and friendly owner / staff. The fireplace was a nice addition on a cool evening. Our meals were all tasty but the flourless chocolate cake was excellent!

My wife and I were lured into Café Eucalyptus by the pleasant atmosphere, highlighted by the fire in the fireplace on a cool night - our first in Cuenca. The entire experience, including food, drink and service, as well as reasonable prices, lived up to the first impressions and set the tone for a magical visit. Run by a sensitive... More

Glad I stumbled into Cafe Eucalyptus by myself on a cold night. I took the waitress' suggestion and sat by the fireplace and that, along with the tastefully lit ambiance and the soothing music, warmed me up and made me feel welcome. I had a vegetarian dish with a savory curry sauce that got my taste bud's full attention. I'll... More

This is a lovely place for lunch/dinner. Great menu with Thai and Indian options as well as more traditional food. The decor is nice and the staff are very attentive and friendly. I'd definitely return.

One of the important travel guides writes "an extensive varieties of wines"... having missed wine in the previous days we went there and ordered 1 of the wine of the long list. "we have only house wine" was the answer. We better would have gone but just arrived in the city , late, and decide to stay and accept the... More

Five and a half years ago, on my first night living in Cuenca we dined at Eucalyptus. I had the Pad Thai, I was sick all night vomiting. I swore to never return. But last night my husband, a musician, wanted to hear a singer who was at the Eucalyptus. So off we go. The first three entrees I ordered... More
