We were staying at the Parador but prefer trying the local restaurants. We were walking around the fabulous town of Cuenca this morning and came upon this place. I checked it out on T.A. and it looked like our kind of place so we returned...More

My partner and I ate here yesterday, and were both very impressed. The food is homestyle and traditional, and the staff were helpful and friendly. As I have coeliac disease, and can't eat wheat, the waiter kindly found out which dishes were gluten free. This...More

Service with a smile. The staff at The Mangana were very warm and friendly. A great place to sit and take in the atmosphere of the square. Usual tapas served with drinks. Recommended is the freshly cooked sausage. Also good for breakfast.

Food is good for the cheap menu del día. Service was ok, even if the waitress who served us was a bit serious. Not unfriendly but serious expressions the whole time. More central location couldn't be.

We visit Cuenca every year for 3-to-4 weeks and have been doing so for the past 10 years. Over the years we have eaten in most of the local restaurants and, without a doubt, Restaurant Mangana is our favourite. The food, particularly from the a...More

We should have known better than to go to a place in the tourist trap zone but we arrived late with many places closing. The food and service we received was well below standard. The chorizo del ciervo was dry and unappetizing. The entrecot consisted...More
