Good, but too pricey and repetitive

I have been in this place maybe 3 or 4 times. The first time is incredible, but every additional time you realize how much you are paying for typical food and it is just not worth it. The new place is nice and staff is friendly. I appreciate suggestions on how to order, but the owner is... read more

I promise you will love Juan's food, style and wonderful attention. Try the curry chicken at least once.

Our guide (a local college student) suggested this as the finest eats in Cuenca and boy was he correct. Yes it is true the chef does "paint" the desert plates (and will gladly bring you back to the kitchen to observe this) but more importantly it tastes even better than it looks! I suggest the price fix if you can... More

One of the top meals I have ever had in my life anywhere on this planet. With our party of 5, we tasted an incredible array of memorable dishes. But, the coup de grace was watching the chef paint dessert plates as if they were canvases and then plating them with equal panache. Never seen anything like it. If you... More

Were seated at quite short notice which was lovely. Had no baby seat which was kinda surprising with the amount of babies and young kids at nearly every table whilst we were there. Might add that the owner and his wife know how to provide excellent service. The staff however are pretty useless, seem far to up themselves with no... More

The best meal in Ecuador bar none. the blue cheese eggplant is magnificent and the staff is elegant and polite. The atmosphere friendly and the owner makes sure everyone is comfortable. If you want a great meal, don't miss this one.

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

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. The Chef himself came over and the personal touch helped make this a very special... 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
