This restaurant was recommended to us by the guy we rented an apartment off. And he did well. The food was excellent. The service was great and attentive. The waiting on staff were busy but kept up such a good standard.
Highly recommend eating here..

We really enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings here. The beer is cold and delicious and comes with a free tapa. We had dinner here too from a fairly typical menu with lots of tapas and raciones. On our last day in Cuenca we came here for breakfast. Great cafe con leche and a huge slice of toasted bread spread with tomato and draped in the local ham. Worth visiting Cuenca for that alone.
Service was friendly and efficient. The only slight drawback is that it's close to the traffic lights at the narrow end of the plaza, so there's often a queue of traffic near where you're sitting.

We eat here several times. It is where the locals go for breakfast, lunch, tapas and dinner. We had the three course menu with wine for 10 euros. Disappointed with first course (scrambled eggs and bean stew) as seemed to have been prepared earlier and re-heated, so choose carefully. However the main course more than compensated as did the amazing baked cheesecake desert which is the best I have ever tasted!

This restaurant is located in the centre of Cuenca, right in the main square (as the name suggests!). We went there for dinner and were at first the only ones in the dining room at the back, though more people came in later. We had a really excellent meal for the price - the 'chipirones' or small cuttlefish were superb. When we left, the bar at the front was really busy so we stopped and had a drink there. As usual in these sorts of places, football was on the TV, but there was a good atmosphere and a lot of people seemed to be enjoying food from the bar.
