Patricio runs one of the finest eating establishments anywhere in the region, including Cuenca! You must ask him to give you a tour of his place which has everything from beautiful gardens to a mini history tour of Paute. Must visit!

Restaurant Corvel is near Cuenca in the mountain town of Paute. It is a tiny, wonderful town, but I never expected it to have a restaurant I call five star. But it did. One of our group had a vegetarian dish, another fresh trout, and I had ceviche. Everything was perfect, tasty and special. The restaurant itself is beautiful and in a beautiful setting. We traveled Ecuador for two months. Corvel was my favorite dining experience.

If you find yourself in Paute, or if you need a nice dining getaway from Cuenca, be sure to visit Restaurant Corvel, just a block and a half off the main square. Great food and great decor. Inside dining, outside terrace or courtyard options are available. Everyone is truly friendly and attentive, especially the chef/owner, Patricio. He checked on us personally and explained the different preparations and ingredients, as well as showed us around the restaurant's picture gallery and exhibits. We enjoyed lunch from the upstairs terrace on a beautiful Friday afternoon. Our meal consisted of 2 Platos Tipicos entrees, chuleta asada and a trucha pautena. Great flavors, nicely prepared. Sizeable portions, not sure either of us finished everything on the plate. This place is much more than a restaurant. We plan to come back in the near future for the Sunday Buffet with music.

An Ecuadorian friend took me to Corvel for lunch and it was delicious. Steak and shrimp was served table side by the chef and was really good.
