This restaurant trip was sincerely memorable. Everything from the attentive service to the lovely meals were something to write home about. This place is too far down the list here on Trip advisor, even though there are so many fabulous eateries in Cuenca. Give it a try, you will not regret it : )

This restaurant was suggested by several people. And I can see why. It is in a spectacular location overlooking the river. And the food was delicious and wonderfully presented. The servers were all perfectly attentive without being intrusive in true Ecuadorian style. If you want a great traditional meal done in a gourmet style this is a great place to... More

The attractive, well appointed formal dining room with white table linens, features large picture windows with sweeping views of the Rio Tomebamba below. The service is attentive, and of european class. Currently they feature a dinner special that varies daily and provides your choice of starter, main... More

El Jardin is the most consistently good restaurant in Cuenca! The food is always delicious. Service is THE BEST of any restaurant in Cuenca. The staff anticipates your every need. Recently, we celebrated my birthday there, as in previous years; the staff went out of their way to make it a special evening. The corvina meuniere is excellent and my... More

The El Jardin restaurante is part of the Hotel Victoria, and as a result is open every day. We had dinner the other night with another couple who are frequent guests. They advised us to try the three course menu for $17.50 with three selections of appetizer, main course and desert. We had the scallops for an appetizer while our... More

My husband and I arrived at the Hotel Victoria tonight and were exhausted from traveling, so we decided to eat at this restaurant with another couple. He had the filet mignon and I had the spaghetti carbonara--both delicious!
