My sister, brother-in-law, and I ate a late lunch here on December 30, 2017. Our server, whose name I don't remember, was great. Our food and drinks, while simple, were tasty. The three of us liked the 'vibe' of this cafe. You will too.

I have gone to Wunderbar many times and plan on going back many more. It is a great little bar with book exchange, pool table (for a fee), foosball (") and board games (you have to request). Good variety of drinks. The young waiter who...More

Funky little bar halfway down the escalantes steps. I have sometimes stopped to go in, only to find them closed, regardless of the door hours say. Othertimes, I have gone and had a pleasant meal, or not... Seems too much variability to recommend people to...More

I have been in Cuenca for a long time, with the first time being in 1997. Wunderbar was around then, probably one of the only bars in town at that point, and it's amazing that it has stood the test of time. It remains a...More

We just happened upon this restaurant walking up the stairs to Calle Larga (Hermano Miguel). Located about halfway up. The entrance is a little deceiving. Usually, there are a couple of throwbacks to the 60’s sitting outside the entrance selling braided bracelets and playing the...More
