Don Colon Restaurant in Cuenca, Ecuador – great food, great service, and a wonderful story for retirement (not!)

There’s a new restaurant in Cuenca, Ecuador (where I live as an expat), Don Colon. Owner and chef Colon Campos came out of retirement, from Naples, Florida to bring his talents to Cuenca. 

Colon is rapidly making friends and new customers because his food is great, the setting spectacular, and he is just fun to talk to.

I’ll be interviewing Colon today, and will share some of his story soon on Retirement Monologues. So come back. You know that you can subscribe to this blog — take a look over on the right.


P.S. Visit Don Colon’s website at and view his new Youtube video!

He features a great Eggs Benedict for breakfast, fresh fish and Mexican specialties for lunch, and a wonderful filet mignon for dinner! Great prices, too. He should soon be featured on Frommer’s and Lonely Planet — keep your fingers crossed.
