The service was absolutely terrible. One of the servers was absolutely rude and didn't even try to hide her bad attitude. They also couldn't get the bill right and tried to cheat us out of our money.

We were seated immediately, the food was delicious and the service from Bohdan was excellent. Bohdan spoke no English but with our limited Spanish we were able to communicate with him and it was an added bonus that the menu was also in English. We stayed in Cuenca for two nights and ate here twice. It is patronised by locals... More

We ate a la carte an had high expectations. We ordered their entre meses that we both found unappetizing with a strange taste. We ordered cuttlefish fish and lamb cutlets and everything arrived at the same time. I had to sent the cutlets back as they were very undercooked and when I did eat them they were rather tasteless.

I've eaten here twice, and both times I was pretty satisfied. Being a foreigner to Cuenca, I find it difficult to adjust to the fact that so many restaurants and establishments are closed on weekends, so my coming to Meson Jose was by necessity since – thankfully – it was open on the weekends I wanted to eat out (first...

If you ask for a beer they give you a small tapa. Beer is so cheap, then they have other dishes that if you ask on the bar (not at the table) is 3 times less expensive.

Plenty food, good service, pleasant waitresses, decent price! Glad we found this bar/restaurant. Good selection of food for kids too but they don't have highchairs. Seating outdoors is on a pedestrian street but is very busy so we sat indoors which is nice too. Highly recommended for a good feed!
