We have had Cui on previous trips to Quito and Cuenca. Map direction to Tres Estrellas incorrect on google maps etc, but we tracked it down towards the end of Calle Larga closer to Pumapungo. We found it stopped in at 645pm, vacant and asked...More

After reading reviews of this place we decided to try coy here. It was surprisingly delicious. The skin is crispy and the meat is tender. Not fatty or gamey. The meal came with potatoes and corn. Plenty for 2. Reasonably priced.

We arrived around noon and we had to wait for 1h to get a roasted cuy. Crispy skin and flavorful meat. The side dishes were mediocre. We also had a typical soup while we waited for the cuy, locro de papas. Very tasty and fulfilling.
