El Maiz Restaurante - Restaurant Cuenca - Ecuador

One of the most tranquil restaurants in town, El Maiz is located in an old colonial building with a beautiful courtyard, and is a true place to soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Cuenca. With sunny rooms and outdoor seating, this restaurant specializes in typical Ecuadorian dishes and fresh juices, as well as more experimental but just as delicious fusion meals. Here you can order grilled cuy (guinea pig) with potatoes and hard-boiled egg along beef medallions in a naranjilla (local fruit) and red wine sauce. The restaurant is a close walk from the Museo del Banco Central, away from the bustle of the center of the city. Despite its upscale looks, the prices are surprisingly affordable.
