I simply can not get enough of this place, its a total gem of Cuenca. Place, deco, environment, food, staff, service, quality and variety of food. Total gourmet dinning, with very fresh organic products, suitable for all tastes, including vegetarian. The food concept is different, with food produced in tiestos and a complete range of spicy sauces (ajis). Staff is... More

If you are in Cuenca and are looking for and absolutely pleasurable dining experience you cannot go wrong with Tiesto's! It may look small from the outside but it's quite large with a very traditional decor but exquisite food, service, atmosphere. Expect to spend two hours and you must have reservations.

We decided to go here at the last minute. We got there a few minutes before they opened and even though we didn't have a reservation, they were able to get us in but they got busy very quickly. Service was friendly and courteous, but not fast, though this is not a fast restaurant. It was fun trying all the... More

I was told that I couldn't miss this place when I was in cuenca as it is the "best restaurant in the country" and I was not told wrong. In fact, after my first visit here I was so impressed that the following evening as I was on my way to dinner, I changed plans last minute and went here... More

Food was good, service was fine. Went here for our anniversary because we were told it was intimate and nice ambiance. Did not find it intimate or quiet definitely not for a special quiet occasion.

We read about this restaurant and decided to try it out without a reservation on a Saturday night. The hostess was very kind and said that they would have a table in 15 minutes. We actually received a table in 10 minutes. The restaurant was very busy but had a nice home-like feel to it and the rustiness of the... More

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
