We ate at 3'ish or so, after a heavy morning of seeing sights - in need of quiet, water and cool temps! Like others, our guide recommended it. Therefore, I was a bit cautious - but needlessly so.The setting was delightfully old world, thd menu was great and prices were reasonable. I had sea bass with crab, which other reviewers... More

Had a wonderful dinner with the family. As commented, the ceviche and the sea bass stuffed with crab were excellent. Very cozy, old school feel that will take you back in time. Take time to look at all the interesting history on the walls. Highly recommended!

Very good sea food, in Ecuadorian stile, specially recommended the ceviches and the grilled "corvina" ( I think sea bass, but not sure ). Very reasonable and good wine list.

Had dinner with friends and colleagues. Good food, Ecuadorian style. But I really liked the service and the decorations. I felt I was a character in a good South American novel. Prices are reasonable and it sure was an evening I will remember. If I return to Guayaquil I will definitely come back to this restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide and it did not disappoint us. Our taxi ride from Malecon 2000 was only US $4.00. We were at the restaurant around 5:30pm, it wasn't busy. Our server let us pick our seats. We decided on seafood rice and grilled sea bass. They came quickly and both dishes were done to perfection... More

Went here with our family group after a day tour. The food (especially the seafood) was outstanding. Unquestionably a great value, but just plain good food. Everyone loved their entree. The ambiance was very nice and we were in a quiet room off the main dining area. Wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. If we lived in the area,... More

We spent one night at the hilton in Guayaquil on our way back from Galapagos and we were recommended by our tour agency and the hotel that this is one of the best restaurants in the area. Please do not go- the food was terrible and the service was non existent. We ordered some local dishes along with sea bass... More

This place was recommended by several people. We had some of the best fish (and we are from California and eat a lot of fish). We got a mixed grill thing that has the best grilled octopus we've ever had. And the sea bass was excellent too. Oh, and the portions are huge! I had a sea bass in coconut... More

We first heard about this restaurant when we were flying from Miami to Quito and our young seatmate said it was her favorite restaurant in the country. Today our private tour guide took us to his "favorite restaurant" and it was the same one we had heard about on the plane. All the praise is valid. The service is great,... More
