What a fun experience this restaurant is. The waiters all rock their Panama hats and that's just the beginning of a totally pleasurable dinner. The food was extremely good and the presentation is an experience in itself. Do yourself a favor and make it a point to visit this restaurant. Make sure it's not on your last night, though, because... More

Wonderful place for dinner, great service, and incredible food. The prawns are big and delicious. The sauces, preparation, and cuisine is possibly the best in Cuenca. It is a unique must visit place, and wonderful to share with friends. Highly recommended, you will be glad you went.

While in Cuenca, Ecuador we had dinner at El Tiesto Restaurant at Juan Jaramillo 4-89 y Mariano Cueva. It was a delightful experience. Not only was the food delicious but the chef, Juan Carlos, made the experience even more personal. He was very accommodating of a milk allergy that I have developed and even brought out a selection of milk-free... More

We loved Tiesto's so much that we ate their twice during our four night stay in Cuenca. This charming and well appointed restaurant has a wonderful, convivial atmostphere - helpful and friendly staff - and a delightful chef/proprietor. Our waiter was Jhon, and he was so good that we requested him the second night as well. The first night we... More

With an intimate and colonial vibe, the menu, service, and detailed culinary approach make this the most brilliant cuisine in all of Cuenca. The caipirinha was the best I've had since Brazil. Everything is fresh, everything is rich and flavorful.

Good food. Really helpful waiter. Perfect atmosphere. I definitely would come back if time and money allow! I ordered sangria, a sword fish dish with seafood sauce and a chocolate walnut cake!

We went on the high recommendation from trip advisor reviewers but we're disappointed in very over salted meat. We ate midday. We were served appetisers of bread and generous selection of dips. After we ordered two meals for two people (solo meals being the most expensive with the cheaper alternative of two or four person meals), the mixed meat and... More

By far the best dinner in Ecuador. Cozy place and kind and very professional staff. We had the Tiesto's menu degustation and it was the right choice to try both fish and meat dishes. Chef Juan Solano supervising all the tables and engaging with us/customers all the time. Superb dessert with funny decoration.

I usually don't rate restaurants but Tiestos needs to be the exception that proves the rule. There's a lot to rave about Tiesto's. Service is impeccable, the food is fantastic and plentiful. We had the steak and it was the best steak I had in years if not in my life. Other people had ribs and had similar comments. The... More
