We stayed at this hotel and so the meal was included. The service wasn't the best it was three guys who basically had no idea what they were doing. The steak and quinoa salad was phenomenal. The dessert was horrible though, maybe being from Alabama I have tasted the best apple strudel and this was horrible in comparison

My husband had the Steak Al Queso Azul which was tenderloin with blue cheese and vegetable. We are from Texas and know a good steak... More

The food was terrific traditional Ecuadorian. The restaurant is set overlooking the gardens of a hotel which is a remodeled old spectacular home. This is a restaurant we would love to go back to.

We went to dinner here on our first night in Cuenca. We were celebrating my birthday. We sat in the glass enclosed garden room that was lit with romantic candlelight. I had the lamb chops and my husband had a steak. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection, the side dishes were fabulous, and to top off the evening I... More

Our server was phenomenal. The food was so delicious and came quickly. The portions were a bit small I found, as is typically the case with higher end restaurants, but otherwise we were very pleased
