We've been touring in Ecuador for two weeks. During that time, we've had many wonderful meals and stayed in lovely places. But lunch today at VillaRosa was absolutely, without a doubt the best meal we've had in Ecuador!!! First of all, the restaurant is a beautiful space and decorated exquisitely. The menu was varied and prices were incredibly low. Appetizers... More

Our nearby hotel recommended Villa Rosa. What a wonderful first impression of the city. The restaurant is indeed situated in an elegant setting, as other reviewers (below) have described - seating in what had been the courtyard as well as in several adjoining rooms, for pleasant table separation. If they ever decide to offer high tea or champagne cocktails in... More

Great food set in a great atmosphere. Here you eat in what was the courtyard of an old traditional Spanish home. It has been remodeled into a spectacular enclosed restaurant. The food was delicious. And the selection ranged from traditional Ecuadorian to more North American food. All was well prepared and served perfectly. Enjoy!

Modern, stylish restaurant owned by Hotel Santa Lucia. We ended up here as part of our guided walk package quite by accident and were very pleasantly surprised. An oasis of calm and sophistication - we felt rather under dressed in our casual sightseeing gear when a large group of smart businessmen in suits arrived! The food was very good and... More

Classy yet simple atmosphere at this white tablecloth restaurant. Bilingual waiters in matching black aprons and shirts with neckties have been trained well in customer service. Menu is limited yet offers a sufficient variety of Ecuadoran and fusion dishes. Caipirinha cocktail had a refreshing citrus tang to it. Villa Rosa salad was similar to a light Waldorf salad with thin... More

Terrific make-over of a former landmark restaurant! Closed last year and in failing state, the common ownership with Hotel Santa Lucia went for broke in a magnificent and extremely tasteful refurbishment. Preserving the villas' balustrades typical of Cuenca atrium homes - the new look is all in a sophisticated white, new gray stone floors, glass enclosed wine room, large planters,... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this place. Their entres were made with fresh and tasty ingredients. We ordered their green salad and tuna tartare. Their pastas are definitely their forte - creamy, rich, delicious. Their lava cake was superb - only matched by Flemming's stake house' in Texas. Don't order their lamb chops though. Unfortunately, ours were quite chewy, although... More
