The food here is scrumptious especially the potato hash. Sunday mornings are popular. We have eaten here twice and will return before we leave. The portions are very generous!

Good American style lunch or just a nice spot to stop and have a beer on the San Sebastian Square. Great burger, cold beer.

Very yummy restaurant. I highly recommend the French toast, though I was dying to try everything else on the menu. If only I had several more stomachs and infinite time.

Your trip to Cuenca just wouldn´t be complete without a breakfast at San Sebas. Lindsey and her team do a terrific job serving and preparing a nice Americano breakfast. Their lunches are great, as well.

The food was good, the service was good too. Some of the dishes are kind of different for what it is offer in Ecuador. Good place to visit.

This place has great food at a great price. It is located close to down town Cuenca Ecuador. The owners who are a brother & sister team are nice.

We'd been in Ecuador before we hit San Sebas. We were missing our state-side routine of big hearty breakfasts. This hit the spot! The smiles on our kids faces when they saw the pancakes stretched across the room. Highly recommend the canela pancakes. Lunch menu looked terrific also

I have eaten here, a few times. What I can say is that their juice is never sweet enough, so always ask for sugar. Sometimes they over cook their eggs, almost celofan like.

I have to admit the chili cheese fries were very tasty, but this is a pricey option for Cuenca. I can get the same dish in Houston for $1 cheaper. Husband had chicken wrap. He said it was good. Good service. Clean. Located on a nice corner for people watching.
