Good Food/Nice Sized Portions

This is a great place to come to in Cuenca when you become tired of the typical almuerzos that are offered pretty much everywhere. The prices are higher, but the meals are definitely worth the price. Service is decent. The location just off Parque Calderon can't be beat. Located just to... read more

Situated squarely on Parque Calderon, one might expect a restaurant featuring traditional Ecuadorian cuisine to be a less-than-authentic tourist trap. Not so with Raymipampa. It's always busy serving both locals and tourists with delicious and well-presented fare. The historical Spanish ambience is quite charming.

This restaurant has traditional Ecuadorian dishes as well as American favorites. I especially like the cheese omelet. WiFi is available. Service is quick and friendly. My only complaint is the the food usually was not piping hot. This seems to be common in restaurants in Ecuador. Food is often served warm rather than hot.

This place is a favorite of foreigners from the Midwest - very bland. The stir fried beef was a thin stew with a few vegetables. Stick with the chicken and rice. It is open on Sunday night when it's hard to find food.

Located in the center of Cuenca in an old building, it attracts at any time of the day tourists and locals. Probably the most popular restaurant in Cuenca, it is always busy and even hectic. The food is ecuadorian, simple but well prepared and served in large portions. I had camarones ceviche and grilled fish: both were good although I... More

We came here for dessert and had big whopping crêpes with chocolate ice cream and bananas. They also had a hot chocolate which was fabulous. The restaurant was well populated and open late and very centrally located.

Joining a couple of friends, we re-visited this restaurant from 2 years ago. I especially love the quirky decor of forks, spoons, knives, colanders and other kitchen items that have been painted blue with rustic overtones to be used as lighting fixtures. The day of our visit, the downstairs was full. We were directed upstairs, which was filling fast as... More

We had dinner at this wonderful restaurant which serves typical Ecuadorian dishes. Food was good, service very friendly. The restaurant is located in an old building and has a nice atmosphere. To Ecuadorian standards it is slightly more expensive than average, but well worth a visit if you spend some days in Cuenca.

Ate here our first night in Cuenca. Had the Pollo de Seco. The tender chicken breast was pounded flat and covered in a traditional sauce. Best we had throughout our trip in Ecuador. Dinner for 2 with wine and beer (and taxes and tip) was under $40. Great atmosphere also. Same family running the place for the past 66 years.... More

We were wandering around Cuenca looking for somewhere to eat and saw the trip advisor badge in the window and quite a few people inside, so thought we would give it a try. The food was okay, nothing special but well priced with a good view of the square outside. That night however is when stomach problems began. I dont... More
