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

This is the 3rd or 4th time we have lunched at this fine restaurant. All the food is excellent, but the potato soup is superb! The portion is huge, so you may want to share with another person. All the vegetables, fruits, etc are grown locally in an organic manner. Owner Patricio invited us to his property outside Paute to... More
