This is the kind of place you would expect to have a couple of tango dancers. The food was ok. Perhaps the mildest vindaloo ever cooked but otherwise tasty offerings and the biggest beers in town. Definitely the place to meet expats and travellers in the know. Service is a bit quirky and slow but part of the charm.

What a great restaurant! I had the Thai green curry with vegetables (6.50) and a liter of Pilsener with limes (4.00). Menu prices include the IVA tax, and prices are good - most entrees 6.00-10.00. The food was so good - toasted coconut and a delicate hot oil sauce serves with bowl of red-pepper laced basmati rice (square glass bowl)... More

Opposite to the description in Lonely Planet, atmosphere was not good (on a Friday night!!). Only two tables occupied. Music did not start until 1030... Food was ok, prices as well.. Better places to go to!

I ended a two week tour of Ecuador here and it was a fitting place for a final slap up meal. The food is to a very high standard, you pay a bit more but its worth it. There is a huge range of pastas, burgers, steak, seafood etc. There is live music at weekend up until 2am. The heavy... More

This restaraunt is classy and has good service and good food. Since it was cool on the night I visited, I enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace. A nice place to go for special occasion.

The menu is quite varied offering pasta, seafood and meat dishes both Ecuadorian and continental styles as well as an entire page offering a great selection of Indian food! Definately something for everyone! Prices are a few dollars higher than a lot of places in Cuenca but worth it. The atmosphere is great, wrought iron tables and chairs, posters of... More

This place has a wonderful atmosphere to sit and have a few drinks while enjoying the company of friends. The bartenders know how to make real cocktails and don't take shortcuts. The food is also good.

We popped in to this stylish restaurant and bar early evening for a quick meal as we were meeting friends afterwards. The service was prompt and very attentive and the food was excellent. Although it wasn't busy to start with there was a good atmosphere and very good music playing. If you are looking for an authentic Ecuadorean experience you... More

After chilly weather and rain this place seemed like heaven. It´s very cozy and if you can get a table near the fire place then even better. The food isn´t bad but the atmosphere is definitely why we returned the second time.
