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

We enjoyed breakfast as part of our room package several mornings. The food was always delicious and beautifully presented. They also have a well stocked bar. The only thing that could have been better were the rolls at breakfast.

From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. We ate outside in the lovely garden courtyard. The staff so attentive. The food was presented beautifully and was delicious. It was perfect.It wasn't cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. If you are celebrating a special day in Cuenca, this is the place to go.

This restaurant was very nice, I felt very underdressed but we were very well received and the wait staff made sure we were seated close to a window and had the very best view. The white glove service was exceptional. Prices are very good for the quality of the restaurant.
