Tiesto's is one of Cuenca's most highly-rated restaurants (by TripAdvisor) for a reason! We went to Tiesto's for a celebration meal last night and were thoroughly blown away by the quality of the food, it's presentation, the service (thank you, Jefferson!) and the overall experience. Tiesto's features many items, but we wanted to try one of the Chef's tasting menus... More

OK so you are in Cuenca, if you leave before experiencing Tiesto's it was a wasted trip. A small group of us went (5 adult and an 11 year old). We had been instructed to let the chef choose for us, best decision ever. Our meal came in four course. First course was a saffron and shrimp soup. The chef... More

We went for dinner with another couple. The menu was hard to understand, not because it's in Spanish, it's just confusing. They bring many little dishes with different sauces tha all kind of taste the same, but look different. I had the limo fino (beef tenderloin) and I thought it was really good. Others at the table had chicken and... More

It is located in downtown, on a beautiful old house. Decoration is colorful and nice. "Tiesto" means a big clay dish in which food is served to share. They have several options of beef, pork, chicken, prawns, etc. Every plate is prepared with a different sauce, all of the delicious. Meals are served with many sides, like rice, potatos, and...

Tiestos is a always a treat. The tiestos, ceramic bowls that the food is baked in, are fun to share with friends. Everything is wonderfully tasty. We love the curry chicken, the blue cheese steak and the desserts are mouth-watering. The chef is a master at food combinations and flavors.

The restaurant is a carefully crafted stage set and the meals are extravagantly presented. The quality of the food is up to to the presentation. Excellent food. Friendly and helpful service. I had three dinners here in January 2017, and all were very fine.

All around the best dinner I've had in a long time. The restaurant was beautiful, the service was great, the food was even better. I highly recommend and will definitely go back. Try to make a reservation.

we did not have reservations and the place was EMPTY but fully booked for about one hour later. The dining is fine and the setting is lovely. The meal was great EXCEPT for the chicken being overcooked (apparently this is common in Ecuador and is even known as "pollo seco"). Very expensive.

… and it definitely is very good food. But the portions are small and very expensive compared to other places. It can be made up by the nice bread and the lovely selection of sauses and peppers that are on the table as finger-picker. Staff was friendly and service as should be. Drinks are seriously overpriced with 7 USD for... More
