We came here for a pretty special New Year's Eve multi-course dinner. We sat in the glass enclosure by the garden which was beyond lovely. It was the romantic setting I was hoping for because we were also celebrating our 25th anniversary. The service was perhaps the best we had in Cuenca. The only thing that disappointed us was the...

What can I say? We were in Ecuador for 3 weeks and this was probably the best meal we had. In fact, one of the best meals we have had while traveling in many years. The place is absolutely gorgeous. Full of details in terms of architecture and decoration that take you back to the times of the Spanish Colony.... More

It was our 5 year anniversary and to continue our tradition, we decided to go to a new restaurant: this time we picked Casa Alonso! As we entered the place, we could feel such a romantic ambiance. Since it is a boutique hotel, the restaurant was located in the garden inside a covered pergola. The staff was courteous and very... More

I LOVED this visit; It was a special day to celebrate an anniversary with friends. As expected, absolutely excellent food. The steak was amazing and I had fish which also, was great. You can casually enter and dine, or make it more elegant and dress to the nines and dine. Beautiful grounds as well; We ate in the back garden.... More

We had a very nice dinner in this French style restaurant. The service is very good and the food is also very good, for Ecuadorian standards. The Duck breast quite good, but not 5 star good. The wine was good and the dessert was very good. This is a very nice place if you want to have a romantic European... More

The attention to detail at Mansion Alcazar/Casa Alonso is second to none. Between the exquisitely decorated public rooms, beautifully manicured garden and guest rooms the hotel exudes an aire of sophistication and class without being pretentious. There is also a wonderful spa. Staff is extremely attentive and genuinely cares that your visit is comfortable, the service is top notch.. The... More

My husband and I had dinner here on August 2, 2016. It was a very romantic setting. The food was delicious and the presentation was stunning. I recommend this restaurant if you are in Cuenca and looking for a romantic night out.

The glass-walled gazebo surrounded by lush plant life, including orchids in bloom, is a beautiful setting for a romantic dinner. With a heater, it is very comfortable in winter months. Service is thoroughly professional. And the food is magnificent. We had the crab starter (lots of crab, avocado, etc.) and duck consomme with duck breast tortellini and small pitcher of... More

We spent there a dinner for a birthday and we had a great time. The food is well made and has some interesting dishes that you usually dont find in Ecuador. The service is really good, they take care of absolutely everything! The veranda outside is the best place to have dinner. Sorrounded by orquids, trees and other types of... More
