Disclaimer: I've been in the service industry for over 20 years, and have also eaten at some of the top restaurants in the world. WARNING! The chef is pompous, pushy, condescending, and arrogant. Like the other reviews said, he does not listen to what you want. Nor does he respect your decisions. Furthermore, if you do have questions, he will... More

A friend, my wife, and I had dinner at Tiestos. We ordered their plate meal which includes paired wine and dessert. They also served us series of appetizers enhanced with herbs and natural seasonings. All of them were wonderful. The first thing that caught our attention was that the chef himself supervises serving the food. He goes around the tables... More

We had dinner here on 03 December. We did not have a reservation, but even though it was busy, we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. We opted for the "individual" menu and started with entrees and then a main course. Had we known the size of the serves, we may have just had an entree... More

More than just a restaurant. Plan to spend a lovely evening in this beautiful restaurant, admiring the murals and art. Enjoy the live Spanish guitar music, and above all, the warm hospitality of Chef Juan Carlos. He and his wife and staff are the best in Cuenca. Come here hungry as the appetizers are not only delicious but plentiful. Nothing... More

Besides the nice decoration and great atmosphere what you will get here is an explosion of fantastic flavors. Since you start , instead of the typical bread and butter , you will be served a variety of different toppings to taste along with your bread . I totally recommend a degustation menu where you will try a variety of food... More

Unfortunately the owner/chef ruins the whole experience. The premise of the restaurant is to serve/sell "family"'style and portions based on what the chef has or has to make money on. We were a small group, with one vegetarian; he insulted the vegetarian refused to serve/sell the individual portions he offers on his menu, and if you insist be prepared to... More

Cozy place, kindly waited and efficiently guided by it's renown Chef, food is excellent. The "tiestos", traditional local dishes, are the must. Afterwards, the great surprise are the deserts, served in plates painted with different jellies, in exquisitely decorated designs, made just for each (unforgettable) unit. Lot of Cuencans say this is the very best restaurant in town.

The good part: Tiestos restaurant in Cuenca has very good food for all the Gringos in town. The menu is large enough for all taste, but be aware a lot of spicy meals and treats. The Bad part. The chef only comes to the tables where he knows the customers. The service is TERRIBLE.
