Cuenca is fast becoming a city known for its diverse restaurants.  El Meson Español  is a Spanish Restaurant located on Benigno Malo and Juan Jarimillo. The restaurant features Spanish Food from Barcelona.  Last week, Dani one of the owners booked a superb Flamenco Dancing Group from Guayaquil. They were marvelous and the food was fantastic.
