“LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

My favoritie dish is the zucchini noodle pesto pasta! It's filling and refreshing. The decor is fun and colorful and the art is very interesting. The staff is extremely kind and helpful and the menu is pretty impressive for a tea house. This place is one of a kind.

“Cheap healthy option”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Their set lunch is slightly more expensive than a regular locals eatery, but its healthy and completely vegan. Due to how healthy this is, you may feel hungry again in a couple of hours but that will give a good excuse for a mid afternoon coffee with pudding!

“Best Quality Vegetarian & Vegan Food in Ecuador”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

I am British from London, a city where there is so much to select in way of quality food, so I do know a good restaurant when I see one! I have been living in Cuenca for over a year and Nectar has so much to offer in way of Ambience and does a lot for the local community. Nectar is a wonderful friendly atmosphere and the best quality vegetarian food that is also refreshingly different. The service has always been excellent and prices are very reasonable and actually the best considering the High Standards of the food and hospitality. There are so many private places to sit, or to have lunch in a group at a larger table. Nectar is a very fun and great relaxing place to have lunch or dinner, (they are now open fridays for the evenings), sometimes they have live music on weekends.

“Friendly service, beautiful setting, very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

I sought out this little gem, because I had heard they had interesting art on display, and I was pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous rooms. The server was very friendly and the menu well priced. I had an excellent fresh juice combo, and for lunch I had an outstanding quinoa tabouleh. The only problem I encountered in the whole experience was rather a large amount of grit or sand in the quinoa. The art was indeed worth seeing and the beautiful ceiling is a favorite in my album. I'll come here again next time I'm in Cuenca.
