“Late night wine and nibbles”

EL Secreto de la Catedral
Ranked #26 of 205 Restaurants in Cuenca
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 December 2016 via mobile

We arrived in Cuenca quite late and wanted to avoid eating in the main square (too touristy) and a friend from Cuenca suggested we tried this place. It's tucked away down the side of the cathedral in a quirky old house that has been lovingly restored with a modern twist (check out the original carved ceiling on the top floor).

We prefer to eat at the bar so sat downstairs and we were treated to some delicious local red wines (2-3 euros per glass), little lamb chops (typical of the region) and a mountain of fried cheese with home made tomato jam. Everything was tasty and despite mixed reviews about service, our experience was very positive. The three ladies behind the bar were chatty, polite and attentive.

Very good quality food, the menu is not too big, but plates are very tasteful and good presentation. Place is cozy and there is good attention. Fully recommended.

Outside they have a terrace but that was packed. Inside you come to a bar where people are standing and eating tapas. Luckily a waiter came to us to see if we wanted lunch and he prepared a table upstairs. The waitress was lovely and her English very good. The menu is in English as well. The food was very fresh and full of taste. Check it out yourself it's ace.

Good food but rather overpriced. There were some issues with the language which made some of our choices a surprise!

Situated high in the old city this Tapas Bar must rate as one of the best. Quite an unusual range of choices but a must is the Cod in Béchamel Sauce and second to that the Scrambled Eggs. Great, friendly staff, lovely outside atmosphere and a good memory of our visit to Cuenca.
