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

Had lunch there today with my wife and 12 year old son, and had some issues: My wife and I had the set menu, and my son had beuf bourgignon and lava chocolate cake for dessert. The steaks on the lunch menus were completely raw and tiny, service was very slow (2 hours for lunch, com'on!), and my son's dessert... More

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.

Stopped by for lunch as we were looking for a restaurant near the River. The restaurant was elegant. The service was impeccable and the food and its presentation was impressive. Three lunch specials were offered. With a selection of an appetizer, entree, and dessert. The offerings varied from lentil soup, octopus salad to Cesar salad. Entrees included ravioli ,sea bass,...
