Beautiful setting and great food! RECOMMENDED

Posted on 04 / 22 / 2015

Great selection of salads, soups, pastas and traditional dishes. Veg is el dente and salads full of variety of textures. Quinoa is obviously a primary ingredient in many of the dishes. Very friendly owner who treat us to a lovely fig dessert. Quiet area and lovely decor set in a courtyard.

Pros: Healthy food, Nice owner, Good selection
Cons: Moderately priced but big portions

Good vegan possibilities in Cuenca

Quinua Vegetarian cuisine is a nice restaurant where you can find vegan dishes, but you may ask, as few of it contains milk or eggs..
The owner is vegan himself so you won't have any problem explaining what is vegan and what is not.
The hot chocote with almond milk is wonderful !
The breakfast is nice too !

Pros: tasty food, open all day long, nice staff
Cons: a bit "expensive"

nice place

Today, the restaurant is no more "99% vegan", they propose dishes with eggs, cheese, and the basic hot chocolate is made with dairy milk.
Anyway, the served food is very tasty and a significative part is vegan. The hot chocolate with almonds milk is amazing.
Currently, they open also on sunday until 6pm.
Vegan must ask, vegan items are not labeled on the set menu.

Pros: atmosphere, breakfast
Cons: should label vegan items, a bit expensive

Just OK

My husband and I tried this place a few times and were never blown away. The almuerzos always lacked vegetables and were just OK. My husband tried the lasagna and it was over cheesed and still frozen in some parts. The food wasn't bad but it was not great either.

Pros: lunch menu is very filling
Cons: a bit more expensive, lacking vegetables
