It was great to find this place open on a Sunday night, when much of Cuenca shuts down. The menu is great, it's expensive for Ecuador but not for Cuenca, and they have $2 drinks at Happy Hour. It isn't fun though to eat in...More

This is a wonderful place to stay near the centro. They are helpful,and have good breakfast and lighter fare. It can be quite busy in the evenings, especially on the weekend, but if you get a room in the back, away from the street, and...More
