The atmosphere is very nice with outdoor dining. The food was very good, their baguettes are excellent as well as the eclairs. One of the best cappuccinos in Cuenca. The service was fast, friendly and attentive.

Great food and service in a lovely location. We stopped in for lunch and truly enjoyed a delicious lunch on the Patio. Great panini’s served with a fresh light salad. I would definitely recommend this spot in Cuenca

We had salad, galettes, crepes, and excellent drinks. The restaurant was insanely busy and it took a while to get our food, but it was worth it.

We met someone there for lunch and were hugely disappointed by the standard of some of the French dishes. My husband had some sort of croque sandwich which was awful and I had a crepe which was dreadful. But the creme brulee was delicious. The...More
