The grilled meats are outstanding, as agreed by just about anyone who has eaten at Nato's. What is fascinating is the long, long grill itself with several cooks all turning great beef constantly.

For some reason, people are still going out and eat at this place. It is way past its glory days and just serve you whatever they have that day. This place was famous for it's "Pecho de Paloma", but they no longer came. It is usually pretty crowded with people wanting to celebrate something. They're prices aren't cheap and the... More

Red meat is the Sanctum Santorum of this steaktemple located in Urdesa Central. For those asado devotes its owner El Ñato Garcia made beef heaven a place on earth. If you like yours well-done, medium or rare, La Parrilla del ñato offers some of the best, biggest, juiciest steaks in town.

A recent visit, not my first one, with five Swedish business executives was interesting. These well travelled gentlemen were excited about the size and the QUALITY of the meet, as well as the wine. And the story about the owner is a positive one - a Uruguayan football player - goal-keeper stayed in Guayaquil and made a second success!

One of Guayaquil's traditional places, owned by an historic fútbol player from one of the city's team. Always a good experience to eat there, just last week they offered to prepare mashed potatoes for my daughter, even though it's not part of their menu. Food quality is very good, service is great, they have this cheese sauce that it's delicious.

La Parrilla was recommended by the concierge at Hilton Colon and very convenient to the hotel...it's just a block away. None of the staff seemed to speak English so we worked with our limited but collective Spanish. The menu is quite extensive and we chose to stick with the basics and went with the barbequed steaks. They were tender and... More

It was a good restorant in the past. In these days there is no difference from a shooping mall food court.

Quite possibly the worst parrillada I have had in my 30 years of traveling. So bad that we left 95% of the food on the table, and ran to a nearby coffee shop to get the taste out of our mouths. They do a dishonor calling the place argentinian or uruguayan parrillada. Every piece of meat or sausage tasted old,... More
