When we first arrived to the restaurant we were greeted and served by two waiters. One a younger gentleman and a woman. Both seemed very snobby and almost like we were disturbing them. It was quite an unusual feeling. The younger woman could not put...More

The service really let this place down, rude and abrupt waiter. Check your bill as we were charged for things we did not have! €14 for a few slithers of cheese with no bread, brash service. Avoid!!

This is a good restaurant in a fantastic location - worth seeking out. It's more up-market than the others a bit further down the hill and prices are more up-market too. Service is good, the room is lovely, the views are special but the food...More

Came here for lunch on a visit to Cuenca. It's right at the top looking down on the Parador but worth the climb. We hadn't booked but they found us a table for two despite being very busy. The decor is very simple and fresh...More
