5 star restaurant with a 5 star price.

This is a very fine restaurant, one of the best of Cuenca. It is also one of the most expensive, and I'm certain that this is one of the factors that keeps their overall ranking somewhat lower than you'd expect. We had a great meal.

We were recommended the restaurant for its food. The waiter was arrogant and upon inquiries he stated menu selection for 2 or 4 were not to share with anybody else. We also inquired about a 'lomo' single portion and he explained it was only seared on both sides and if we did not like it, the steak was not going... More

Tiesto's is a very special place, the perfect venue for birthdays, anniversaries or entertaining visitors from afar/ The food, wine and atmosphere are the best in Cuenca, perhaps even Ecuador. Wait staff are very attentive but not in your face and when Juan Carlos, the owner visits your table his recommendations are always the best possible ; and do not... More

To achieve the status Tiesto's has got is no accident. It's a dependable hit for locals and tourists to try; they boast some inventive techniques. But to receive its practically golden status, to the point to where the waiter kicks off by claiming the restaurant is the best in Ecuador, is a little far-fetched. We were walking through the center... More

In January of 2015, I visited Tiesto's and had a marvelous experience. Based on that experience, my wife and I, along with three visitors, had dinner at Tiesto's once again. First of all, the service was awful. It took a very long time for our waiter to even acknowledge our presence (and he did see us). He knew nothing about... More

If you only have time for one dinner in Cuenca, make it at Tiesto's. This restaurant has the best combination of food, local culture and superior service in town. Don't skip dessert, either, because Chef Juan decorates each plate comes with a beautiful piece of hand-painted artwork.

Started off with an array of chills and bread. Then came the rocota peopper slightly dusted with salt and side of lime (damn!) which we we used as a side for the rest of our meal. The flavors were amazing on both the appetizers and entrees. 5 on 5 for ambience 5 on 5 for service (did I mention Chef... More

Let me start with my only gripe and this is consistent in most restaurants in cuenca, the lighting could be better, cfl's just don't do it for ambiance although theirs is less than most. The service is the best in Cuenca, our server was perfect throughout the meal. There was nothing left on our table at the end of our... More

The prices here are a little on the high side with the prices of adult beverages quite high. To me, a restaurant with these kinds of prices must have excellent service and facilities along with above average food making up a complete meal.. Tiesto's falls short of my expectations. The service ranged from slow to very slow, the table where... More
