A nice country restaurant about an hour bus ride from Cuenca to Paute. It has an unassuming facade, into a lovely courtyard. It is is great place for brunch, though they're also open for evening service. The menu is surf and turf. The ceviche, either the starter or the main entree, is a refreshing take---the seafood is cooked then served... More

Corvel was my very favorite Sunday lunch stop for years. Sadly, the menu was changed about a year ago. The choices are less interesting and the food as well. I still go there from time to time..but nowhere much as I used to but I will continue to hope for a return to the earlier style and quality

Great food, welcoming staff and a beautiful garden with humming birds. We were lucky enough to go twice to Corvel during our stay in Cuenca. Once with friends for a long Sunday lunch and prior to that on a gastronomic tour with Chef Patricio including a visit to their community herb farm and a cooking class at Corvel including a... More

Many people recommend the lunch and it is good, but I like to go at night. The ambiance at night is appealing. There is special lighting and tables outside if you want. It is a good place to celebrate a birthday or special occasion.

We had the menu del dia which included soup, main dish, dessert and juice for $4.00 each. The food was very tasty at a very reasonable price. The restaurant is also very interesting to visit - very clean and offering some intersting local products for sale.

Good service, the food is remarkable. Waiting time for dishes to be ready was not much. Menu can be prepared for special diets such as gluten free, vegetarian,and food allergies.

Meals off the menu are delicious, but the best deals are to be had during the weekday lunch hours. Almuerzos are a bit smaller than a traditional lunch here, but the meal is of very good quality and the price is right. They also offer a children's menu. If you choose to eat outside you are sure to enjoy a... More

This is a surprise place in little Paute! One often finds absolutely nothing of note in a small town, but Restaurant Corvel is a treasure. Their friendly staff greets you warmly upon entering the place, which is usually packed on the weekends because of its popularity. You can choose to sit inside or out, but definitely choose outside in their... More
