Was a fantastic restaurant. Has now been closed for 6 plus months.Not sure what more I can say. It is a real loss - great food, enormous servings, good price. Incredible desserts. But no more.

Thee years ago in Ecuador while hoping to visit a young child I sponsor through World Vision I instead found Cuenca, a beautiful City in the Andes, a couple of hundred miles south of Riobamba, a City that was to fascinated and become an irresistible destination for years to come. While, with friends,taking a walk from our hotel we came across The Cuchara Magica, a resturante they apparently had favored in the past so interestingly so we entered to a very pleasant atmosphere where we were soon to realize the owners were fellow Canadians who had migrated a few years earlier. They spoke lovingly of Cuenca, the people and their chosen country ....Soon we were "Home" enjoying conversation with these fabulous people when it dawned on us we came in to satisfy our palate Chuckle..The menus were passed around and the arrangements were truly astounding, we made our choices and soon the food was before us in all its glory which when tasted surpassed all expectations "fabuloso" .
The rest of our stay in Cuenca as far as replenishing our fuel (food) was concerned was at the "Cuchara Megica'
where the ambiance was magical, the food remarkable and the Service beyond one's imagination.

I had a nice burguer but honestly I think that there are a lot of better places in Cuenca if you want to enjoy a good meal.
