We celebrate a birthday with the friendly folks and good food at La Parrillada Restaurant in Cuenca every year. This year we had the Churrasco - a nice beef steak in sauce, with salad, a huge amount of rice, and french fries, topped with two...More

The restaurant decor is rustic, long tables, heavy wood. The night we were there we experienced a heavy rainstorm which made it difficult to hear one another with their metal roof. Our server was efficient and friendly. We had fruit stuffed crepes, the apples should...More

La Parillada offers a nice variety of meat dishes. My favorite is their filet mignon, but their sausages are good too. On few occasions we ordered bottles of wine (always good!) and we had a good cold beer. This place is not for vegetarians! I...More

This restaurant was recommended as having the best steak in Cuenca. NOT. Four of us each ordered different cuts and not one was any good. Rib eye, T-bone, filet mignon and a house cut....each was tough and chewy. Papa fritos, ordered extra well done were...More

Great Almuerzo in the Solano area. We have eaten here twice and both times our food was great and the service was quick. There is a lot of seating in this restaurant. If it’s hot out don’t sit under the skylight, it gets a little...More
