It was my wife's birthday, and this is one restaurant locally we had not yet been to. They have an excellent menu, lovely decor and great views, as well as excellent service. You may order from a broad menu or a prix fixe menu. My wife chose to order from the prix fixe menu and had a lovely dinner with... More

Everytime I go to Cuenca, it's always the same restaurants (also delicious) but this time I decided to give a try to something new and I don't regret it at all! El Jardín was amaaaazing, the food was delicious and the service was beyond excellent. Their menu presents a variety of courses which you can choose from typical to international... More

We love to eat here for breakfast, but it is good in evening also. They have a good menu, and some wonderful surprises also. The view over the river is wonderful, try to get a table near the southern windows. We enjoyed our meals here, and the service was great!

When we arrived at 1 p.m., we were the only ones in this beautiful room that looks out over Rio Tomembamba to the city beyond and Turi looking down on all of it. The three-course lunch is a bargain at $17.50 for the high quality of food and preparation. I had a delicious ceviche, served with popcorn, seasoned chips and... More

I've always selected from their set menu (about $17.00). Everything that I've tasted has been fabulous. The waitstaff are very attentive. The room is lovely and there's a great view of the river.

This was an excellent restaurant. It is definitely a "high class" restaurant, so it is a dress-up restaurant. We ordered the menu of the day, which comes with an appetizer, main course, and dessert. It was about $20 a person. A bottle of Rosé was about the same price ($20) and the service was excellent. At the same time, the... More
