Juan Carlos knows how to keep you coming back for more food. His langoustine soup is outstanding. The lomo fino, the eggplant, the chicken, etc. are all fantastic dishes cooked to perfection.

The hearty, no-holds barred dishes of this famous culinary temple are created by Juan Carlos Solano – a feisty dictator in the kitchen and an ebullient ambassador in the dining room. The dishes are rich, spicy and huge. We loved the dinner but could not finish more than one course each. So the next day, we dragged our hotel manager... More

The service is very good and the food excellent. The shrimp soup is extremely recommended and the blue cheese steak is the best.

Ordered an appetizer for sharing (Seafood) and two individuals (beef and chicken) The different sauces that we became were so great and tasted every spice of... More

Excellent food, a bit pricey for Cuenca. Have dined there two time and will again when I return to Cuenca. Check the menu on their web site. Food is high quality served in a pleasant environment by attentive waiters. Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Predominantly Cuencano guests. Best to make reservation.

Juan Carlos is the ultimate host and chef, from showing us the ropes on how to experience his homemade salsa's properly to enjoying his artful dessert plates he made the evening a night to remember. The tasting menu is a great way to sample his cuisine which is delicious and done to perfection. The shrimp were spectacular and you must... More

Thank you Chef Juan Carlos for the amazing experience you provided to us on April 9th. When we were seated to our table you immediately took over our dining experience to start explaining and recommending how to work through the variety of salsa/chutney on the table. We could have easily filled up on those - so delicious! We chose the... More

My cheeks hurt from smiling so much - from the minute we arrived at Tiestos until we left. Juan Carlos made our time at this restaurant THE dining experience of a lifetime. I would go back in a heartbeat. It has been 2 years since we were there and I am still telling people about this place. We didn't even... More
