We started with appetizers on the terrace. Drinks (Campari), wine, and sangria were all good, and the food was good; scallops were excellent, but I wouldn't order the mushroom spring rolls again. Dinner inside was very good also, with attentive service. We had the baby lamb chops (excellent) and the sea basa (good). Lemon mousse was giod, and the almond-honey... More

The view from the terrace is stunning. I would recommend reserving a table on the outside terrace. The pork tenderloin in apple and cider sauce was excellent. The meat was tender, juicy and tasty. The service was excellent from the owner's son who spoke very good English. There was an English menu which was great as I have limited Spanish.... More

The food was typical local food. Nothing against the taste, but the quantity offered on the plate was short compared to the price payed. We tried it because we stayed at the hotel and because of the views, but I would not specially recommend it for the food. If you do not really mind the food that much but you... More

Loved this placed, it closes at 10:30PM on week days and we arrived at around 10:45 and they were more than happy to serve us. Food was amazing, wine even better and staff is really nice with great service and attention to details. Very nicely priced, about €130 for 4 adults and 1 children for a 3 course meal with... More

This charming hotel and restaurant is run by a Canadian expat, and is a most memorable place to stay and eat. The hotel is built into the cliff side wall of the old town of Cuenca, and the restaurant and some of the rooms have a spectacular view across the gorge to the old convent. Our room was clean comfortable... More

Visited this establishment based on Tripadvisor reviews. Not disappointed. The restaurant is attached to a hotel and I would suggest booking if you are not staying there. We went there in March and whilst the town of Cuenca seemed fairly quiet the restaurant was quite busy. The food was excellent and very good value. If staying in Cuenca again, we... More

A smal restaurant with a fantastic look against the Paradore. Remember to ask for today's special. When we were there they had five extras and we ordered from that. Good prepared and good taste. Service was good this evening

Delicious dinner with interesting dishes and good list of wines of the region. Excellent service and very reasonably priced. We had the same table for breakfast and the views are stunning.
