Great vegetarian burger options!

Great vegetarian burger options. Any burger can be made vegetarian!! The garlic fries are DELICIOUS. We are also big fans of the multigrain bread they sell.

I have eaten here on a couple of occasions and tried primarily lunch type food. The cheeseburger I ate was good but certainly not the best I've had in Cuenca. I had a Cobb salad the other day and was very disappointed. Basically just some lettuce and not much else. I guess I would just echo what another commentator had... More

I've come here a few times when I feel like having a burger. The jalepeño popper burger- is not as heavy on jalepeños as it sounds but is still pretty tasty. I appreciate that they have a vegetarian option (the veggie patty is HUGE By the way) Desserts- LOVED the cheesecake the rice crispie treats were a bit too rough... More

A popular gringo hangout, but the menu does not inspire....the location is great and the service is very good, but as I mentioned there is nothing special about the menu or the food

Who would have thought that I had to come all the way to Cuenca, to try the best Montecristo ever!! Great place, staff is bilingual and the food is simply awesome. Great setting, too...located in a quaint plaza surrounded by colonial buildings. What a great little place.

Great place located outside an awesome plaza. I've eaten here a few time now and always enjoy it. Plus there's refills on coffee the way it should be which is rare in Ecuador

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 Chili Omelet. The portions here are large... 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
