We learned about this restaurant in Lonely Planet and decided to give it a try. It was dark and so cold inside the restaurant that we had to wear our jackets. They had a fireplace but didn't have wood to burn. The band was supposed to start at 8PM but didn't show up - maybe because it was raining... read more

We visited this restaurant again a year after our first visit. It's still shabby (old shabby, not charming shabby), badly lit, and the service is still atrocious. This time they had neither the red nor white house wines available...and no Sangria (because there was no red wine!). Once again, checking out was just painful. We had to wait 15 minutes... More

We had been hearing good things about this place, but we were unhappy with our experience. A nice historic venue, but not particularly clean. Just three tables were seated, but the service was slow and uncaring. We started by asking for beer (Pilsner on tap) but had to ask three times for the promised lime). My entree was turkey and...

The place set up is gorgeous. Sorry to say not the service. Same as menu. You are in tour table, and you order the wine, and they start running to get around the place, where to order one. Menu, traditional Ecuadorian fare, nothing special but full of carbs, potatoes and corn.

I'm going to add to the food poisoning comments. In 3 weeks in Ecuador we were not sick until we ate at this place. The service was atrocious and they were out of virtually everything that we wanted to order. (As others have also noted) The chicken we ordered was lukewarm and tasted funny, so we stopped eating, but not... More

We like the atmosphere and the depenadability of this restaurant. The food is good at a slightly higher price. The menu includes some Indian cusine.

We ate a really good dinner in Eculyptus. The rest. Is located in the historical zone of Cuenca and decorated in a really cool way. It took us like 20 minutes only to review all the nice things in the huge space. When we arrived we were told that it was a lady night and therefor I received a free... More

Before eating here, we were a BIT sceptical. I mean, despite all the positive comments on here, what are the REAL chances that a restaurant offering dishes from about 10 different cuisines honestly does anything well? Well, the food was poor - ok. The Tom Yum soup was about as far away from Tom Yum as you can get, the... More

very varied menu, everything is good!! Sometimes service leaves a little to be desired, if it is packed, you are better off finding another place - there are a lot of choices nearby
