Ecuadorian tradition in food, music and on the walls!

If you are a traveller and want typical Ecuadorean food in a traditional environment with excellent service and soft music with their national "hero" Julio Jaramillo - this is the place. I´ve been there several times, and they are always up to standard!

Our guide in the Galapagos who was from Guayaquil recommended this restaurant as his favorite for local food. There were 5 of us so we ordered 2 appetizers to share, fried calamari and scallops with Parmesan cheese. I especially liked the calamari. We ordered a seafood paella for 2 which was a huge portion, a seafood stew and a rice... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch at the recommendation of our guide who stated it is his favorite place to go on special occasions (thanks Eddie - Guayaquil a guided visit). We thoroughly enjoyed our experience! Before ordering we enjoyed bread with aji (a spicy pepper condiment). We would really love the recipe for it - it was fabulous! Our... More

Our group of traveling friends from North and South America were delivered here by car from the Hampton Inn and it was amazing. The menu is extensive and offers the best of traditional local foods as well as international cuisine, fine wines and excellent service. It has a wow factor when it comes to both preparation and presentation and even... More

An upscale restaurant that is worth it. The best restaurant we found in Guayaquil. We had a fish platter that was excellent. The portions are very large so suggest sharing.

Our food was delicious, and the dessert cart made a nice ending to our meal. There are many options on the menu for local cuisine so you can get a good idea of what Ecuadorian food is like, and it's delicious!

I was expecting more, mostly seafood place with almost US prices level makes little sense when service is less than average. Food was OK but with the level of pricing paid for LATAM value is not so good. Nice ambience. Probably will not come back

This restaurant was recommended by an Ecuadorian friend who said she always eats at Lo Nuestro when visiting Guayaquil. My daughter and I had dinner here on our last night in Ecuador and we enjoyed it very much. The atmosphere is colorful, cordial, casual yet formal (table cloths, nicely dressed staff and impeccable service). Excellent food (we each enjoyed a... More
