Terrific selection of Argentinian versions of the Spanish paella. Huge servings, entrees meant to be shared. Pair with any Argentinian Malbec or Cab or Carmenere (go for anything marked Reserva) and you're in gastronomic heaven. Reserve for dinner.

If you want to have a meal of the tenderest most, mouth watering beef then this is the place. We had complimentary snacks that were brought to the table and we ordered two beef entrees for all 5 of us. The sauces were so delicious we wanted to drink them out of the serving dishes. We spent a good two... More

This place used to be really good but now on they have lost the touch, I went with my family recently to eat there and I got a really rawre Meat! It was drowning in sauce that had to much spices that eventually got me sick. Also the "natural juice" that they served me was from a box.

Ordered a pasta dish that was cooked to death. The pasta was reduced to mush and it was cold. Horrible food, horrible service!

Had the iron pan with steak and chicken surrounded with potatoes! Fantastic! Also came with appetizers and rice and salad. For desert we had Flan, out of this world. Pricey by Cuenca standards but well worth the price. Still cheaper than we would pay for a similar meal in the US.

We enjoyed a delicious meal of well prepared meats and a great bottle of wine. The service was excellent and the setting elegant but not stuffy. The desserts looked amazing also but we were too full to try them! Highly recommended if you are in Cuenca.

We eat here often. Favorites are mustard chicken and the steak dishes. Sometimes we each order double portions and bring home multiple meals.

Honestly, we scoped this place out for a few days prior to deciding to make the plunge. I mention it like this, because in comparison with other restaurants of "El Centro" en Cuenca, their prices were quite high. In their defense, they explain that nearly all their dishes are intended to serve 2 people. Even dividing by two, the prices... More
