"Joe's Secret Garden" is a VERY different experience. It's a cross between a restaurant (with GREAT food) and a private dinner party with friends. Located on Los Pinos in Cuenca, Ecuador, dinner "happens" on Saturday night...always a delightfully different menu prepared by chefs extraordinaire... father and son...always with new and old friends. Dinner costs between $12 and $14, with your favourite libation(s) added to your tab. It's become a gathering place for English speaking ex-pats who've relocated to this BEAUTIFUL country. The location is in a grand old Ecuadorian home, with exquisite gardens, where you can enjoy a drink and conversation while father and son Joe and Joseph prepare their culinary delicacies. Their facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/GourmetCuenca. Just DO it...you won't be disappointed!
