One of Cuenca's best restaurants

Exceptional food in this very charming restaurant in El Centro, Cuenca. Many typical Ecuadorian dishes, exquisitely prepared. A must while in Cuenca.

Our group of 7 ate a fantastic lunch here today. We had not reserved but a table was quickly arranged for us. The chef came to our table to assist with our selection. Everything from the bread and dips to the eclectic decor was wonderful. Our platters of steak and Langostinos were perfect and dessert a tasty artistic treat. Wines... More

This is the Fourth time we have been to Tiesto's and we are never disappointed. We had the steak dishes and shared two different preparations. They were both excellent. Of course, the desserts are not only beautiful to look at but taste great as well.

We had Locra de Papas soup and another rice dish. It was delicious! And they serve a bunch of salsas on the side which is cool. Friendly staff.

Went mid-week as a party of six with no reservation around 7 pm. The manager found us a place to sit with the understanding that another group had a reservation for the table at 9 and we had to be finished by then. We were a little confused by the menu with so many plates for four.We ended up each... More

I saw that this place had good reviews, so we tried it out for lunch. I'm still working on the Spanish, so it was a bit tricky navigating the menu. A lot of eggplant dishes in the vegetarian section. I think the chef noticed us struggling with the waiter in our limited Spanish and he came over and basically told... More

We ate here at the recommendation of our hotel. We had little time in Cuenca and could only fit it in for lunch. The menu was entirely in Spanish so we ordered what we could translate, both chicken dishes. One came with a blue cheese sauce and the other with a curry macadamia sauce. Both were excellent. They bring so... More

The place is very, very cozy and has a very Cuenca style... The chef puts so much soul into the food and the attention to detail on clients is amazing. Place has like 8 different "aji" sauces aji its traditional hot sauces in Ecuador, and the way they make you taste different dishes with different Ajis is great! Food has... More

I've been to Tiestos three times and every single time what I ordered was great. The "langostinos," in fact, approached perfection! The first time I went there, I was there with friends, and the second time it was a professional meeting. The third time, however, I went there with my family, including two one-and-half year olds (my son and my... More
