Directions to Tiestos Cafe-Restaurant
Everything in Tiestos oozes authenticity. From the outside, you see a typically unpretentious Cuenca building, so unassuming you can pass by without noticing it. Once inside, you immediately feel the warmth of the atmosphere and the welcoming spirit of Juan Carlos, the chef-owner. The décor is like that of any typical home in Cuenca, with locally manufactured ceramics, wooden rustic furniture, colourful textiles and hand-painted walls.
The Spanish word 'tiesto' means an earthenware pot, and the food in Tiestos is cooked in clay kitchenware, one of the oldest forms of cooking; this noble material helps preserve the intense and original flavours of the ingredients. Tableware is also ceramic, using the renowned colourful and artistic ceramics manufactured in Cuenca. Several kinds of sauces and condiments are set on the table in different little pots, forming a tableau of flavours.
The menu has a wide selection of dishes that include appetizers, soups, meats, chicken and seafood, and vegetarian options as well, with several sides available. Most of the dishes are served for a minimum of two people in the same 'tiesto' they were cooked in; the idea is to share, although some of them also may be served for one. Desserts are presented on exquisitely decorated plates and are a feast to the palate. The wine and liquor list is also a very extensive and includes international vintages.
Tiestos is one of the most talked about venues in the Ecuadorian city of Cuenca, loved by locals and visitors alike. It really is a special place with absolutely fabulous food.
