I’m visiting Cuenca, Ecuador from the United States and found this wonderful restaurant on trip advisor. The late afternoon hour isn’t typical for dinner, but the host and chef we’re ready to offer complete selections from their menu. My selection of the vegetarian spaghetti with...More

The menu is just beyond their grasp to pull off, as they work their way around it with what tastes like dry bullion (caldo) and other shortcuts. For this price I would like to think someone was making a decent stock to give the food...More

We had the Lomo Esquina for 2 and enjoyed it. Before, you get bread and dips as well as empanadas as a courtesy. Staff is friendly and the atmosphere is cosy.

Well prepared beef is a rarity (pun!) in Cuenca. Most South American cooking is unfamiliar with aging/tenderizing beef. However, Le Esquina does a good job, serving flavorful tender beef in ENORMOUS portions. (We ordered one meal and the two of us couldn't finish.) The location...More

At around $15 La Esquina is considerably more pricey than most places in Cuenca. As for the food, it certainly does live up to price. I had a steak in roquefort sauce that the waiter told me was imported from Argentina. It was quite noticeably...More
