We are ending a one month visit to Cuenca, and decided to splurge on a high rated dinner... we chose Tiesto's for it's rating and proximity. Even on a slow Tuesday, we called ahead and made reservations. We were seated promptly, but there was an awkward delay before first interaction, which was a busboy type, who brought us bread, and...

Tiesto's is a must when you are in Cuenca, the food is delicious - the service is super fast and the restaurant is beautiful decorated with Ecuadorian accessories. Only thing to complain is that you need to make a reservation in advance and the price for wine and food. We paid 100$ for 2 person (Degustation menu with vine and... More

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.
