Small and cozy place owned by family, mother and father are the chefs and the 2 son are the server, very fast service, the tortilla de papas is the original from Spain since they are native from Oviedo, Spain.
If you really like Spanish food you will enjoy visiting this place.
Very inexpensive, but good food.

I went here the other night with a friend. We had the meatballs, shrimp with garlic and the potatoes. The meatballs were a little bland but everything else was great. The service was good as well. I would recommend checking it out if you have the chance. In total between myself and my friend the bill was $14 - so not super cheap but definitely not expensive!

We've just eaten there; very welcoming place and great choice of tapas. We've tried, among others, the gaspacho, papas bravas and chorizo, all very tasty and fresh made.

We stayed across the street at one of the TripAdvisor recommended vacation rentals. The owner encouraged us to try La Tasca and we are sure glad we did. Mamma cooks and the two sons wait on tables so this is a family run restaurant. We had several tapas plates along with the house white wine. Every dish was delicious and presented nicely (food should not only taste great but also look nice on the plate). You could taste the care in the cooking. This family is from Spain and the cooking is authentic, much different than Ecuadorian cooking although we enjoy both.

The brother who waited on us spoke English and was a delight to engage in a discussion on their family background. This just added to the experience. As an added bonus, we both feasted on excellent food and the bill was extremely reasonable. When in Cuenca, this restaurant is a must visit and is in a great location.

We stumbled upon HR by accident and glad we did! Our culinary excursions in Cuenca had been met by repeated unexpected closures of restaurants. We found HR when were looking for an option to feed two hungry kids (ages 8 & 10) after yet another unanticipated closure. The restaurant is small but very welcoming with gracious hosts. After traveling in South and Central America for 3 months, we had tired of the blandness of "daily menu" options...until we came here. The set menu of the day included two tapas, a dessert and a glass of juice, all of which were delicious and well presented. The brothers were charming and eager to please. I would not hesitate to go back!
