“Quirky place with Fantastic food and fun Chef!”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Meals are designed for 4, but after a look at the menu, Juan Carlos (the chef) took me over to see what was cooking. At 1330 the place was still busy. They sat the five of us down and he came over and suggested the beef and shrimp (it's not on the menu - you don't need the menu. LOL.)

He was bang on. Huge prawns and delicious tenderloin! The meat was closer to medium rare than medium, but we tend to order "up" when travelling for just this reason.

My allergy to nuts meant that the one dessert was out of the question, so, again - the chef said "I'll make you a meringue" and the others can share the nut dessert. Wonderful presentation and nice deserts.

One nit would be that the jug of "limonada" came as LIMEADE and as a result was a bitter drink.

Big Lunch for 5 came to 100. We didn't bother with dinner last night!

Go, if you are in Cuenca.

“So incredible, we ate here two nights in a row!”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

This restaurant is amazing. We arrived without a reservation on a Friday night and the staff squeezed us in anyway. After we chose a dish, we ordered the Fiesta de Carne. Or at least we tried to... the chef came out after the server relayed our order and he clasped my hand, emphatically informing us that he had a better idea of what we would like. He was absolutely correct. The man is a master of flavors and we absolutely loved the food he put in front of us. The assortment of salsas and chutneys enhanced every bite and we had more than enough food to satisfy our appetites. The dessert was just as good! And the prices are unbelieveable - our entire meal, with wine and dessert was under $70. For gourmet food!!! We went back the next night and the chef prepared surf 'n turf for us. Incredible. There is a reason this restaurant is rated #1 in Cuenca!!! GO!!!
