After the amazing tour with PAblo (Cuenca Viajes) we went to San Juan for dinner and everything I had was truly delicious. I didn't try any meaty dishes as I'm a vegetarian but all their veggie dishes that I tried were yummy! :)

We were in Cuenca for three nights the week before Easter and ate here on two of the evenings. Really lovely food, not too expensive and the waiters were very attentive. If we return to Cuenca we'll certainly eat here.
