Just Amazing!

My husband and I had lunch here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We had shared the Heart of Palms salad and found it to be very tasty, with lots of flavor and color. My husband had the Salmon and I had the Veal Cordon Bleu. Both dishes came with roasted potatoes and lightly sauteed vegetable and... read more

My family and me went there for lunch. The meal we had was really great. Dishes were very well presented and delicious. Service was good and fast. The Restaurant was neat. The view was great. They don't include local dishes in the menu, but when asked (by other customers) they offered a good variety of local cuisine dishes too. The... More

My wife and I had dinner here on Sunday night. El Jardin is one of the few restaurants open on Sunday for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by the garden atmosphere of the restaurant. The staff provided excellent service. The veal cordon bleu was also excellent, and the price was surprisingly low at $12.50 per person. Since we dined at... More

I don't have a bad thing to say about this restaurant! We arrived early on a Saturday, 6pm, and practically had the place too ourselves. The decor is soothing and beautiful- you really do feel the garden all around. We both ordered the special 3 course dinner for $17 each. We were amazed how much and the qualtiy of the... More

Only went for breakfast, expected a nice view and some nice food. Got neither and the staff were rude to boot. The breakfast is simply a choice of eggs or no eggs asked by a big guy who just stares after asking the eggs or no eggs question. A couple of miniscule rolls are served by some silent guy and...

I was taken to this place when I was in town for business. I liked it so much that i took my wife and another couple as we visited Cuenca. We were not disappointed. The staff is by far one of the best trained and most professional I have seen in Ecuador. Food, aperitives, wine and overall atmosphere is great.... More

I've been to El Jardin twice in the three months I've lived here and can say that both experiences were wonderful. The views of the Rio Tomabamba and Cajas Mountains are simply beautiful, the staff is attentive and the food has been perfect in every way. It's obvious that there is a great attention to detail in this restaurant and... More
