Concierge.com's insider take:

A short walk from the Parque Calderon, this handsome restaurant located inside one of Cuenca's best hotels is equally popular with locals and visitors. The recent influx of Americans to Cuenca has definitely had an influence on the cuisine—the menu offers traditional dishes like shrimp ceviche with hearts of palm, lupini beans and avocado, and mote sucio–style corn, alongside continental favorites like Caesar salad and pasta primavera. The menu has a number of cosmopolitan choices, too, including vegetable tempura soup and steak smothered in gorgonzola, so there's likely to be something to suit most palates. And it's all served by a superbly attentive staff in a picturesque glass-encased dining room with daytime views of hummingbirds at work in the gardens outside.—Cathay Che
