We've been hearing great things about San Sebas, so finally went there yesterday. We like the separation of tables and rooms; mostly loved the food, but were sorely disappointed with the service, We sat at a table next to the servers' counter and yet got no attention until I had to get up, waive or go to the servers' counter...

Yep, gringo owned, gringo food, gringo prices, and gringos everywhere. The food is good, the service top notch, and I need this place once a month to have my US breakfast - the times that I don't want to cook my own. Nice atmosphere in a really nice spot in Cuenca. That being said, it's not far from home, that... More

The food and staff are great, hence the four stars, but this is not an Ecuadorian place. This is where you go if you're American and homesick. It is full of Americans, both expats and visitors. Prices and food reflect this.

i had the cinnamon roll pancakes --3 large pancakes, which were too much for me to finish. my husband had a breakfast combo which was also quite good. while their prices are higher than other places for breakfast, their portions are quite large. the quality is high.

We are only there for Sunday brunch. It is difficult to pass up the banana nut pancakes. Mmm - delicious! Coffee is good too.

Really comfy atmosphere and lots of gringos. The service was a little slow the day we went but was still good. The food was delicious. I got the veggie omelette and my fiancé got the pancakes and we were both very happy! We'll definitely be back during our stay.

Totally organic food! Really nice sitting on the edge of a square. Plenty of space and very roomy. Would go here several times a week over six months. And the food is always excellent and consistent. I think their selection of hamburgers are the very best in all of Cuenca! But the other items on the menu are really really... More
