You might say the price is astronomical and you would be right, considering how cheap food is in Cuenca. But the food is great, and the ambience is excellent.

I typically don't like "fusion" food, but Tiesto's does everything well. We dined here in May of 2018. We had the set menu for two (with seafood) which is a great way to sample everything from appetizer to main course to dessert. From the beginning when they brought out an array of sauces/ceviche/pickled vegetables, to the end when they brought out a dessert that looked more like an art piece (with hand-painted flowers in syrup, everything was fantastic. Oh, and they tasted "mucho delicioso" too.

The only downside is the price, it is likely the most expensive restaurant in town. But if you want to excite your palate (and your eyes!), it is worth a try.

On a packed holiday weekend, we were lucky to get a seat in this place without a reservation. Clearly, it is a very popular spot and with great reason. The food was amazing; the chef personally suggested what food we should try, and it was well worth it. It is obviously on the pricier side of things, but if you can spare some cash and enjoy food, it is highly recommended. Next time I go I'd go with the tasting menu, no question.

Having been here on a couple of occasions,I would consider this to be one of the best restaurants in Cuenca. Both the quality of preparation and that of presentation are outstanding. The wait staff are exceptional as well. I will look forward to my next dinner here.
