My wife & I just got back for Cuenca. We went to Don Colon's twice while we were there. Don visited our table and made us feel warm and welcome.
All the food there was fresh and served hot at the table. The staff was also very friendly and Don even treated us to a glass of wine. Will definitely go there again on our next visit to Cuenca.

Hmmmm...If the bathrooms are dirty, probably the kitchen isn’t cleaned....food is below average even though the location is premium for people watching...stick to beverages is our suggestion....why chance food poisoning...

Don Colon's is just an all around good experience. The location, the food, the service, all things you want in a good dining experience are here. The ambience is a bit average but the fact that the owner Don Colon himself comes out and visits with his clientele let's you know he's serious about his business and wants his customers to enjoy their dining experience in his restaurant. What amazed me was my girlfriend and I had an appetizer, entrees and wine, all very good for $40. Quite the deal!

Stopped here for lunch while visiting the old city and ate an enjoyable outdoor lunch: soup, salad, an entree and a cervesa - all for about $6. The seating inside looked pleasant for colder days. If you get hungry while strolling through Cuenca, this was a quite, affordable, friendly place to recharge.

Very good restaurant. I had pasta of the day and salad for a starter. They gave garlic bread for the whole table to share. Don Colon himself took our orders and did some small talk with us. This made the whole dinner very special. He spoke perfect English so it was very easy to order. Overall we had very pleasant experience.
