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

This garden restaurant in the Mansion Alcazar hotel is a bit stuffy and old fashioned, but the food and service were excellent. We ate in the Gazebo within the garden, which is a bit too grandiose for my tastes but is nevertheless pleasant and an improvement over the main dining area. The food was well prepared, and the service was... More

This restaurant has it all: Food: great menu, with delicious, creative, appetising tastefully decorated dishes. We ordered their crab and quinoa, crab and mango/avocado saladas, onion soup and traditional cuenca spread appetisers; their duck with risotto, pesto, sirloin, and sea-bass dishes and everyone loved their food. They have very creative and tasty desserts - lavender cake!? Ambiance: We sat in... More

The high tea here was recommended by an expat and we thought it would be nice to try something different. What we got was something different alright. The table setting and dining area is very attractive but, beyond that, high tea in Cuenca definitely needs work. The tea was a teabag in a (very pretty) teacup with barely warm water... More

Is this one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant? Well, yes, but, being a well traveled gourmet I guess I have a list of probably 100 best meals in hotels and restaurants around the world. This was in my top one hundred. To find the restaurant you go through the main entrance of Hotel Mansion Alcasar... More

We were looking for some place special for our 41st anniversary, and tried Casa Alonso. It is pretty unique in Cuenca, being "fine dining" at its best. The restaurant is situated in a garden area of a hotel, with a pianist playing in the center of the courtyard. The food is fabulous, though the price is rather high. Definitely a... More
