Amazing Breakfast in Cuenca

I have been here several times now over the last year and I always come back. They have the most amazing pancakes which are more like giant cinnamon rolls sliced in thin layers to resemble a pancake. The homefries are always good cooked with a curry seasoning. My favorite breakfast dish is the... read more

Wow, we Gringos take consistency for granted but this place helps keep that alive. Most restaurants in Ecuador suffer from the lack of solid food distribution whereby leaving them high and dry at times and so so meals....not so here. Very consistent with good food, good value and good service!!! Applause all round!!!

The food and service were fine. You'll enjoy your meal here. However, nothing stood out. It will be a nice change from the restaurants that are closer to you, but otherwise much the same.

My wife and I met with a business contact here this morning, and it was perfect. San Sebas made it easy to focus on our conversation, not on problems with food or service. You can spend a lot more money on bad food in Cuenca, and this food was great. There was a large group (12-15) of gringo men there... More

These young people have created a super menu with their Americano favorites blended with Cuenca flavors and gusto. Their burgers are varied and delicious enough for a gourmet and the portions are large enough to satisfy any American. It is a must for a weekend brunch. Decor is eclectic, bright and very friendly.

Had the chocolate pancakes that were average. The chocolate was good but not a lot of flavor in the breading themselves. French toast was average. Bacon and eggs were good. Keep in mind which cook is cooking also makes a difference. We went on a Wednesday morning. $11 something for 2 egg 2 bacon a slice and a half of... More
