Raymipampa is a nice traditional restaurant just off of Parque Calderon in Cuenca Ecuador. The restaurant looks out onto the park so the view is nice.
When we go out for lunch in Cuenca we like to go to Tutto Freddos/Nice Cream for pizza, but we wanted to try something different so we went to Raymipampa. It’s located right next door to Tutto Freddos.
We were happy we went in. They have lots to choose from on their menu and the prices are reasonable. There were many traditional dishes on the menu, so if you want to try some delicious local food this might be the place for you.
Traditional Food in Cuenca, Ecuador
We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the portions were a good size. While we were there we saw both locals, travelers and expats coming and going.
I thought the decorations were interesting. They use kitchen utensils like flatware, plates and cups… to make their light-shades and other artwork. There were also old black and white photos up, they looked like historical pictures taken in Cuenca and other areas in Ecuador.
Bryan and I had the almuerzo which is a three course lunch served with soup, drink and dessert for $3.50. It was really good and filling. The dessert was small but just enough for something sweet to finish the meal. The almuerzo is probably different every day so if you go planning on having it you might want to ask what they are serving that day.
An Executive Almuerzo (Lunch) for $3.50
They served warm bread and choclo (corn) to start the meal, and like most meals in Ecuador, it was served with a side of hot sauce. Our daughter had fish, one of her favorite meals. She loved it and had no room left for dessert.
