Truly a great experience

We read a review that this restaurant was a good example of Ecuadorian food. It was! The food was delicious and plentiful. Too bad we couldn't take doggie bags home. Two of our party ordered the garlic crab hands - what a treat. But way ore food than one person needs for an appetizer... read more

Now, roaches don't make me freak out, but it did make me stop and wonder. The dinner itself was otherwise just ok. Nice retro ambiance and genteel table settings. Followed the waiter's recommendations. Flavors were not bad, combinations were a little odd, and cooking was uneven. We started with avocado with shrimp. Turned out this is served warm with a...

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local, and it was amazing. Looking at the place, I thought it was going to cost a fortune. but it turned out not to be that expensive. Fantastic seafood exclamation

My wife and I went here for a late lunch/early dinner at the suggestion of a travel agency where is was said to serve local cuisine, which sounded fine to us. We took a taxi from our hotel in downtown Guayaquil. We were greeted by a friendly doorman who opened the door for us. We went in and were seated,... More

Agree with Stephen H ! Wish we would of known it was a set menu in advance and what were our choices! Nothing like I googled - no Crab hands etc etc very very disappointed. Please do not take the set menu - I'm sure we missed out on a what could of been a great dining experience!!

This was our first dinner in Ecuador (we were there for 14 including 5 on a boat in the Galapagos) and I think it was our most "tired." The food didn't have the excitement that we found elsewhere; perhaps they are used to dealing with tourists who want food that is recognizable. It was ok but we had some wonderful... More

Our tour operator booked the evening meal and we had a set menu so this review needs to be taken in that context. The restaurant is to the North West of the centre and a good 20 minutes from 9th October Avenue. The place is busy, mainly with other tourists when we went and the service was functional, the house... More

We have been in Ecuador for two weeks now, and this is one of the best meals we have had anywhere, and even though we had Ecuadorian specialities. The quality and quantity of the food was excellent and filling, well beyond the average Ecuadorian speciality restaurant; service was attentive and friendly, though perhaps a tad formal; and the ambience and...

Was the last night here and wanted a treat, this place certainly did the trick. Really classy place, good service, good food. Got the house wine for $7 and they brought out a goblet of it. Seafood was on point, desserts looked good though I didn't have any. One of the nicer post-dinner cappucinos you'll find in Ecuador too. Would... More
