First class in every way

The meal, the service, the décor and the views are all excellent. We enjoyed our lunch (and half bottle of Cab Sav - all very reasonably priced) so much that we returned the following day before we left the city.

My husband and I are just ending a 3 month stay in Cuenca. During that time, we have eaten in most of the top-rated and expensive restaurants here. (An "expensive" restaurant in Cuenca costs about the same as Olive Garden in the US.) We've eaten in El Jardin a number of times. There is an a la cart menu but... More

We had a wonderful evening at el Jardin, everything was outstanding , the food ,service and atmosphere. Our dinners were prepared as requested and timed so we could relax and enjoy the view and each other. We also enjoyed a very nice Caberbet Sauvignon that was very reasonably priced.

I had eaten at el Jardin in 2013 and considered in to be one of Cuenca's finest eating establishments, so I was excited to invite my spouse for Valentine's Day. The experience was less than sublime and while every restaurant can have an "off" night, suggests underlying management issues. My hubby made reservations 10 days in advance and requested a... More

Excelente! Superb! Great 4 course meal for $20! Food, live music, great service and your loved one by your side. Perfect dinner! Highly recommend the Navarro Correas Malbec, a private collection for a decent price!

Nice and elegant. Located in Calle Larga, and is open in Sunday, and was able to order a bottle of wine. In Ecuador no liquor is allowed for sale. Menu is fine, average. Very clean, you will not disappointed.
