I've been here many times since 1997, and always it has been excellent quality food and service, Menu is international, with North American items and Equadorian specialties. Salads are excellent. Wine list is very good, but a bit pricey. An old house made into a very comfortable restaurant. I highly recommend.

The restaurant is very beautiful and the food was excellent. I had house salad and pepper soup. The dessert was just great-blackberry sorbet. The only problem was that the waiters were not friendly and acted like we should not be there. If you can over look this- then enjoy the food.

The place is very elegant, has efficient service and good food. I ate a Ravioli and it was delicious. The white wine was not in the right temperature and so we couldn't drink it until almost our meal was finished.

Everything was perfect there. It is probably one of the most expansive restaurants of Cuenca but is worth the price. If you want to enjoy a nice diner in Cuenca, just choose this one, you won't regret it. reservation highly recommended

We had dinner one night and lunch the next day at the restaurant. The service was very good and the food was delicious and definitely not costly. It is a low key place and after telling the maitre d' that we wanted to dine and not just eat dinner, we were given lots of time and space to enjoy ourselves.... More

An old and beautiful andalusian style mansion, recently renovated, offering gourmet food and an ample choice of spirits and wines. The lamb we ate was really exceptional.

My wife and I have been in EC for a couple of weeks and were looking for a nice restaurant where we could have a traditional US Christmas dinner (roast turkey, dressing, gravey, mashed potatoes, etc.). I blogged the internet and a couple of responses recommended Villa Rosa restaurant. Since that is only about three to four blocks from where... More
