The restaurant is French inspired. It is a lovely spot that overlooks the river with big glass windows. The service was very good and attentive. The food was more expensive than many other place in Cuenca but a nice change.

The food is expensive and the quality is bad. The shrimp had a nasty taste since they were not fresh. No one from the staff came to check and they ignored our requests for attention so no dinner was eaten. My husbands risotto was ok. We finally got the attention of the staff after signalling for them for nearly an... More
