This is a wonderful restaurant with a varied menu and marvelous wine list. Wine is used as the decor and you feel you are dining in the wine cellar. You could walk right by during the day, but at dinner, the outside tables are set up and it presents a warm and inviting entrance. The tapas were wonderful, but be sure to save room for the main course. The staff spoke reasonable English and an English menu is available by request.

The server was very attentive and the acoustics were such that you could carry on a quiet conversation with your table mates. We would go back.

It's a shame this place isn't more busy as it has a great riverside setting. Huge wine list with some real bargains on there, we tried a couple of appetizers that we're good but a bit ambitious - a Serrano ham dish that read well but turned up essentially like quesadilla with jam! Still, we look forward to giving it another go, apparently they do half price sushi in the afternoons.

This restaurant reminds me of a fine meal on a good cruise ship. The ambiance was excellent and the food was even better. I had medallions of red tuna over a bed of sauteed vegetables and was melt-in-your-mouth good. I also had sushi as an appetizer and it was the best.
The staff spoke English and our waiter was very attentive and made us feel as if we were his only table. Very impressive.
Everyone in my family was pleased with the meal, even my picky eleven year old daughter.

Stone Walls and Wine Cases provide a simple setting for this truly excellent restaurant. It is perfect for late night dining after a concert or other event. This is an upscale place with a very well executed if not overly broad ranged set of menu options. Steak is quite good here, as is seafood. Plates are creative and service superb! Pricing for solid food offerings is fair - and total cost will of course vary based on wine selected to accompany.

Our new favorite restaurant in Cuenca. We could not have picked a better place for our anniversary. The décor is very European yet modern. Our table had a very intimate setting where we were surrounded by walls of fine wines. The selection of wines is the best we've seen in Cuenca. My wife had the salmon and I had a Peruvian sea food dish. We both loved our meals. The tiramisu was one of the best I've eaten. The service was professional and attentive. The waiter spoke very good English. The next time we return to Cuenca, this restaurant is first on our list. The price is a bit pricy for Cuenca, but we were very satisfied.
