My husband and I had dinner at Las Monjas last weekend and consider it the 'find' of our stay in Cuenca this year. We had heard about the restaurant a while ago but never visited, and were surprised to find a new menu and very reasonable prices. The decor is stylish and modern; the host, Carlos, attentive and professional. The... More

I eat here at least twice a week, either for lunch or dinner. You can't go wrong with either one. The food is great -- lunch is less than $5.00, but I would recommend either the filet mignon or the salmon for dinner -- and the service is exceptional. Carlos is very cordial and welcoming, and his recommendations have always... More

i enjoyed an evening dinner here with friends recently. We found Las Monjas to be an excellent experience. An attractive, well-run restaurant, with an interesting menu and great food (and very reasonable great prices). Carlos, the owner, personally greets the clients and manages the service. It makes a big difference!

The restaurant offers a good variety of different kinds of dishes. They use traditional products in an innovative new style. The quality of the food was excellent and everything was excellent made. The service is courteous with a good knowledge about the different kinds of meals. The restaurant has a nice ambience and is located centraly.

We had two meals here while in Cuenca and they were both delicious. The food is very fresh, cooked to perfection and served with style. Carlos, the head, was very helpful and welcoming to us. This is a ‘must-do’ stop while in Cuenca for something different. Try the three ice cream cups for dessert. Delicious!.

My husband and I head to Las Monjas as often as we can, to enjoy a great meal. Prices are very reasonable, given the quality and creativity of the dishes. Las Monjas uses as many local ingredients as possible, which is definitely a plus. We never see anybody else dining here and I often wonder why. Part of me loves... More

We experienced a great meal, the food was prepared perfectly and very well presented. This restaurant has a great eye for detail. Las Monjas is tastefully decorated and very clean. Our server was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The lunch special is a great value. This was our first visit and it certainly will not be our last.... More
