When this was Cuchara Magica it was our favorite, go-to restaurant for a good meal at a good price. Then it closed due to the work on the Tranvia. We were ecstatic when we saw that it had reopened. Boy were we disappointed. The waiter is still there and I was set to enjoy some of the great fried trout or a steak. What a shock it was when we got the menu and saw burgers, ribs, and other standard gringo fare. Since we were on our way to a concert we decided to stay and get burgers with their "potato balls." The burgers fell apart and were pretty dry. The potato balls were more like soggy hash browns. We will not be returning.

This jewel of a restaurant is on the main street in Cuenca Ecuador and features fabulous homemade desserts with large portions. Trish and Dennis are Canadians who have beautifully decorated this restaurant to give you a fine dining atmosphere with excellent pricing for quality food. Excellent service, bar, and italian coffees. Home cooking at its finest and will be a welcome change. Italian, Indian, European and good old fashioned Canadain items like Pot Roast, Sheppards Pie, Wings and Ribs etc. Make this a must stop!
