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!

Daniel Duran runs a first class shop! Tucked into a lower floor of the Victoria Hotel on Cuenca's Calle Larga, this very attractive dining room has sweeping views of the Rio Tomebamba. Best to dine here at 6:00 pm as there is still daylight, unless enjoying lunch... White table linens and Euro-Class service greet those seeking a quality continental food... More

This restaurant has a lot to offer. It is located inside the Hotel Victoria and has a nice view of the river below. The food and service are excellent, and the wine is reasonably priced. This place is worth a splurge for a nice meal.

I could ramble on and on about how great this restaurant is. Suffice it to say this is a five star experience. Everything was perfection from ambiance to wonderful food. I can't afford to go as often as I would like but will make this restaurant my go to for special events such a anniversaries or birthdays.

After traveling around southern Ecuador for a couple weeks, we were looking for a "spurge" dinner while in Cuenca and were not disappointed! Language barrier was a bit of an issue,(my problem)but the staff was first class. Our meals were fabulous(steaks). The wine list was challenging due to my ignorance, but our waiter made an excellent suggestion that cost less... More

We just enjoyed a lovely Sunday dinner at Le Jardin. Most restaurants are closed on Sundays and you can only order wine (or beer) on Sundays if you order dinner. It is a lively setting, mediocre service, and above average food. Having said that, we would recommend Le Jardin.
