“Nice ambiance”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We had heard a lot about Roux, particularly about their trivia night. The ownership is Americano, and the work very hard. We went with another couple and arrived by taxi, so I still don't know where I was. The specials were posted on a chalk board. The menu was comprehensive, but we were there when they were preparing to close down for a week's vacation. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was well prepared, and each of us was pleased with the quality and quantity. The seating is broken up into a few smaller rooms, so the atmosphere is cozy. We have not been there for trivia night, but plan to attend. This is a keeper.

“Came Back for More!!!!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Dined here two nights of our two weeks in Cuenca. Very tasty dishes, well-thought out. The salmon special was cooked perfect. Excellent service both times we were there, once on a Wednesday and then a Friday night. Very reasonably priced and a friendly atmosphere.

“Nice little place!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

While in Cuenca we attended a small seminar hosted by The Roux. The owner and her staff were very attentive as soon as we arrived and greeted all the attendees with courtesy and smiling faces. We had a three course lunch and it was all prepared wonderfully. The food used to prepare is very fresh and we can be sure that it is safe for outsiders to eat. Very important in Cuenca! When we return, I am sure it will be one of our favourite stops for lunch.

“What more could you ask for?”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I was at the Roux today and I ordered a Hamburger "WOW was it good. and so far to this day everything I have eaten there has been extremely good food! Not to mention that all of their food is fresh every day. this is obviously one of Cuenca's Fine Dining restaurants and should not be confused with the little MOM & POP hamburger joints. I will continue to eat there because they have a great menu great food the atmosphere is great, the people are nice, in earlier posts there was a complaint about the hamburger size, which is not correct in my point of view, I have been going there since they opened and the hamburgers have always been a good 7oz or so! I really wish people would watch how they comment about new businesses writing reviews like could be detrimental to their business!
Thank You!
