The restaurant is supposed to opened at 12:00 pm. So we went at the opening. We entered, and the guys said, it is not ready yet : "Hello, it is already 12:00 pm and you are supposed to open at this time". We went to seat to the table, with a nice view by the way (the only positive thing... More

It is very hard to find really good quality vegetables and especially salad during our travels in Central and South America. Here you will find fresh salad grown from their garden. the soups were amazing. Everything was presented well and the atmosphere was very nice. The staff was extremely attentive.

The atmosphere is really incredible. From the street you pass through a stone and timber labyrinth and base the smells and sites of the bakery and kitchen. Then go down the stone steps into the restaurant that looks out over the river and green hills. The service is fantastic. Attentive but reserved. There are many good menu selections that have...

I almost have no words for this place! I had heard about it for a while, and I thought, "How great can it be?" But I was so pleasantly surprised. This restaurant just underwent extensive restoration and it is a jewel in Cuenca. It was part of the monastery next to Todos Santos church from the 16th century and still... More

This was definitely the best meal we had in Ecuador - in beautiful peaceful surroundings and so cheap! The chef is totally committed and the food fantastic and full of flavours. We had an amazing bean soup and also the subtly flavoured vegetable soup. All vegetables grown just below the restaurant. My husband's goat stew had been slowly cooking all... More

My wife and I are in Cuenca for three days. We had lunch at Restaurante Todosantos yesterday and plan to have dinner there tonight or tomorrow. The food is phenomenal -- we each had soup and then an entrée, and all four dishes were excellent. My wife had chicken, which they raise, and the salads feature vegetables that they grow.... More

It was really as surprise, the place is in one of the main streets in Cuenca, Calle larga, but is not easy to spot, so pay attention, it worth while. It is an old Nunnery and has few tables, but the food is really gourmet, first rate, maybe the best I ate in Equator, even when capering with Quito restaurants.... More

At Todosantos on Calle Larga in Cuenca, we expected a good meal. What we got was a great meal and a chance to meet a new friend in the chef Mauricio. Todosantos is is a building owned by the Oblate nuns. There is a bakery, cafe, lounge, and a quaint restaurant with only eight tables. We arrived around 6:45 and... More

Stopped for an early lunch.It took a few minutes to find the dining room down several corridors,twisting towards the river. Once seated the service was fine and the food very good. A very satisfactory experience.

Lovely setting in a restored and converted convent.This was Cuenca's first church.Menu is in both Spanish and English.The food was absolutely delicious,the service impeccable and we had a wonderful view of the river.Not cheap by Ecuadorian standards but worth every penny.Make sure you stop by the nun's bakery on the way out but first and foremost make sure when you...
