Super friendly people, good good, and nice vibe. We arrived early in the evening and the owners chatted with us. Soup was a little salty, sushi was excellent. Definitely worth visiting again!

“Fantastic place, best outside dining in Cuenca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

I actually am combing two reviews into one. La Terrace (associated with Hotel Villa Nova) is simply a fantastic place to eat, enjoy outside dining, meeting old and new friends. It is the best outside seating in Cuenca, and has the best value sushi in Cuenca. The staff are very friendly, treating patrons more like family than customers. The service is really good, the staff very attentive and personable, the drinks are full pours and very good. It is a great place to relax, enjoy a drink, and simply 'chill'.

A few weeks ago, I planned a surprise birthday party involving about 18 guests. I was very very impressed by everything that Bill Dixon and Evangelina did to make the occasion very special. From the set up, to the service, quality of food, price.. everything was just perfect! I highly recommend La Terrace for both special occasions as well as casual, relaxing times!

“Amazing view, outside dining, fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Whats better than dining outside with a cold cocktail and fresh food, overlooking the river?!
This place has it all! We wanted a place to relax and have a casual cocktail, but weren't willing to compromise on the quality of the food. La Terrace turned out to be the perfect solution. I would recommend trying the Hawaiian Roll if you're in the mood for sushi (a delicious combo of spicy ahi tuna, pineaple and strawberry) or the coconut shrimp if you're in the mood for something else. I tried to get the recipe from the chef but they wont tell me!
All in all we highly recommend this spot for just about anyone.

“Good food and fair prices...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

I can`t think of a better place to enjoy the Rio Tomebamba, sip on a decent cocktail and eat fresh and tasty food. I always feel like I'm getting more than my money's worth. You can rely on the freshness of the sushi, which is delicious and creatively presented. Treat yourself to the hot chili oil to dribble on top, if it is available. The sushi prices vary between $8 and $10 and are a meal in themselves.

The rest of the menu is standard bar food with daily specials thrown in. Always fresh and well-priced. BBQ specials available most week-ends. Closed on Tuesdays.

“Delicous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

By far the best sushi we've had anywhere in Ecuador. The rosemary salmon is to die for. Large portions and beautifully served. The staff is attentive and the chef does an excellent job. The owner aims to please. So nice to have somewhere to dine where you can sit outside by the river , enjoy delicious food and be surrounded by wonderful people. Our first time there we went for brunch and stayed for dinner. Loved it.
