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.

Really liked the look and feel of the place and the service was excellent (not a given in Ecuador). Our group of 4 ate there twice and about half our meals were really good, the other half just okay. The pad thai, for example, was fine but didn't really taste like any pad thai we've ever had. Nice fireplace on... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant on a Sunday night when many restaurants were closed. We went with slight misgivings since some prior reviews were less than enthusiastic. We all enjoyed the warm fire, efficient service and very good food. Two ordered from the Indian/Thai menu and enjoyed everything. Two ordered the grilled sea bass which was perfectly cooked (I could... More

Really, don't. You will leave super disappointed, that's almost guaranteed. The indian and thai food should definitely not be sold here as they have nothing similar to the originals, it wasnt bad food but it was definitely not thai or indian. Aside from that obvious flaw, an overpriced cafe latte, was served with so much chocolate that i thought i... More

We stopped into Cafe Eucalyptus for lunch today. The food was great and the service was wonderful. The decor of the restaurant is lovely, too. As far as the lunch special went, it was three courses for $10, a little more than some other places where you can get three courses for $4 but the dessert at Cafe Eucalyptus may... More

My wife and I visited Eucalyptus not having read any recommendations or otherwise. In fact we visited here 4 successive nights for dinner ( 2 different staff) and the conduct/ service was excellent. Not once did we wait more than 5 minutes after sitting, in fact if we were early service was immediate. We've travelled and eaten on all continents... More

We went here twice during our week in Cuenca recently, as friends we were with had been there a year or so ago. The first time was for drinks and tapas, and although the service was bordering on atrocious, we really enjoyed sitting by the wood-burning fireplace, and the general atmosphere of the place. It was very quiet, few customers,... More

If overpriced, mediocre food, appalling service (we waited 40 mins to be served and a further 10 mins for our drinks) and rude staff are your thing, then you'll love it. Otherwise you won't.
