The highlight is the fish. Good quality fish and a decent size serving (N American standard sizing). The artistic curly fries are tasty. But... the artistry has a few downsides ... thin and thus the cool down fast. Long, curly and springy! Watch your ketchup...More

This place is nicely situated right by the river in the centro historico. It has a nice area for outdoor seating, and the indoor seating is nice as well. They have some of the best burgers I've had in the country. Their bacon blue cheese...More

We've never had a bad meal here, nor a bad drink. We come often for their happy hour because they truly make the best mojitos in Cuenca. Also love their sliders, hamburgers, micheladas, curly fries, fish and chips, and shakes. Very nice staff and service...More

We come to Cuenca 90 days a year on a tourist visa. Each year, we rediscover Mayu Restaurant and each time we are delighted to have done so, but wonder what takes us so long. Slow learners, I guess. Yesterday, we were walking along the...More

This place makes you think you’re not even in Cuenca. Very unique place with many choices not found other places. Baked potatoes, nice steak, good sandwiches, and good fish and chips.

Never had a bad meal! Even when they are busy. Pretty location, huge portions, open on Sundays which is nice, staff are always friendly and accommodating. The Chicken Parmigiano and Pannini's are very satisfying. Oh don't forget those cinnamon rolls !

I can tell you that our friends forewarned us about this place. We walked by last night and they RAVED about the blackberry cinnimon rolls but they cautioned us from trying anything else. I will say that those Blackberry Rolls are TO. DIE. FOR. So...More

I reviewed this 2 years ago when it first opened and said it had good sandwiches. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. I have been there 3 times in the last year. Each time, the sandwich has been poorly made, and I have left...More

As vegetarian this place is a great option, the Mayu vegetarian burguer tastes amazing, with fries and salad that are a great companion. It offers two environments, indoors and outdoors! Totally recommended!

If you're missing North American style dining and food this is a close second. Pulled pork sliders, burgers, fish and chips, local beers, pastas, pizzas, etc. the prices are higher than other local restaurants. Our party of 5 shared meals, all had drinks and one...More
