We ate at Tiesto's on a recent visit to Cuenca. The restaurant had been recommended by good friends as the best in Cuenca and we were not disappointed. Immediately upon sitting down we were greeted by the owner/chef, Juan Carlos. He went through the menu with us and suggested the 5 course degustation menu (just under $80 for 2 including... More

We had the langostino for 3 as well as the shrimp soup and locro. I wanted more by the time we had finished...it was scrumptious! Service is excellent and the serveware-plates are beautiful!

We had the 5 course tasting menu which was very good, and the service excellent. It is very expensive by local standards and there are many fine restaurants in Cuenca that are far better value. However it is known as one of the best in Cuenca!

Excellent place! Fusion Cousine from Cuenca. We went twice same day. Start with tamal with pork. Ask for langostinos (they are huge like lobsters) in any sauce, and must have the beef medallions with blue cheese sauce. Their "encurtidos" are excellent.

5 course meal, it is so much food, we took home desert and part of the entree because we could not eat it all, my husband is a big! big! eater and he could not handle it all. If you get a chance to go...by all means go.

First i must apologize to the owner for leaving a less than excellent review over a year ago. I confess i was still suffering gringotitis and it was me that was lacking in eloquence and not their staff. The owner continues to offer a top notch service combined with exquisite food. It is truly a dining experience to match the... More

Once again trip advisor hit the mark. After being on a vegetarian diet for four weeks, it was great to be correctly advised about where top get some great MEAT!!! The curry chicken was awesome. Very tasty. The sides and sauces burst with flavor. Great atmosphere. Very good service. Definitely recommend.

Our meal = I'd return, the food was a lovely presentation with unique flavors, but a bit salty. The wine was just disappointing. Atmosphere = Other guests were very Loud & I couldn't hear my husband who was sitting in front of me. Lovely well thought out decor. Service = Welllllll, needs improvement. We sat around waiting while the waiters... More

When we moved to Cuenca four years ago Tiestos was the place to go, unfortunately in their new location the restaurant is loud, the service poor and you have to pay if you want a drink of water, the food is still good but because of the reasons stated we won't be back.
