“A lovely surprise”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

If you want top quality food in delightful surrounds, this is the place.

Set in the beautiful Mansion Alcazar, this is high end dining at a fraction of the cost of Sydney. We each had 2 courses of international standard food for $50 and we were treated to excellent service and stunning views of the garden. Perhaps the most expensive dining in Cuenca but well worth it.

A real treat and a memorable dinner in this lovely city.

“Uplifting experience in Cuenca”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had a party of 6 traveling eating only basic meals so far. It was wonderful to walk through the wonderful ambience of the hotel ( would have loved to have stayed there ) to dine in the garden room which had a brassier to keep us warm . We looked out onto an enchanted garden.

Service very prompt and most courteous even though one of the group wasn't eating .
I had the most delicious prawns for main course and the trio of crime brûlée for dessert sensational .Excellent wine list and we had a malice from Mendoza .

I would love to return and it has certainly been our best meal in Ecuador

“Beautiful Place offering Delicious Food & Awesome Ambiance.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Thus restaurant is nestled inside the Mansion Alcazar hotel.

The entire place looked very beautiful and very intimate.

We were seated right away. Our waiter was very prompt. Our food was very delicious and tastefully presented. The dessert was worth the extra calories.

I highly recommend it.

“Great food wonderful service”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

The setting is very European style. The menu selection is a large range. I ordered the spagahitti with asparagus and chicken. My friend had prawns. Very delicious! We ordered strawberry with creeps and ice cream. Nice dinner!

“The best we had in terms of quality and service in Ecuador!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

After a long day of walking and sight seeing in Cuenca, we were really up for a treat. We had walked by this hotel/ restaurant and it looked good in the ratings but truly ; reality was far better! We had Cuenca delicias and sauteed shrimps for starters- excellent! Mains were salmon de horno y pollo parmezano- another delight. And the desert... No words! Service was impeccable- all in all we were really impressed.
