We had lunch here and the food was ok but nothing special. The best part was watching the locals who filled the place. We were the only tourists which was refreshing.

Before I begin, if you want North American cuisine, think eating in a country other than your own should be cheap, want cuisine from a country other than the one this restaurant is located in, or want to have your every whim catered to in YOUR language of choice then don't eat here. If you do want good Ecuadorian seafood... More

We went here for dinner on the recommendation of our tour operator. The restaurant is very much of a former time, in a good way, with well turned out waiters and old fashioned décor. The meal started off well enough with prawn ceviche, which was nice, but then what is there not to get right with ceviche?! For mains my... More

We were in Guayaquil 2 nights before and 1 nights after a trip to Galapagos. Our Galapagos guide from Guayaquil recommended the restaurant as we were interested in eating Ecuadorian food our last night. It did not disappoint. We arrived to eat at 7:45 and were seated right away as the locals go out to later! There was a long... More

We arrived at this Tourist trap as a part of a city tour, so it wasn’t really our choice. We apparently had a set menu as part of the tour, however it took them 20 min to establish what we were able to order. No need to say that the options were very limited, so we decided to spend an... More

The food is very good local Ecuadorian fare. Four of us with a night in Guayaquil on our way home from the Galapagos, were looking for dinner. While the Hilton, Colon has a nice restaurant, we wanted to get out into the city. Lo Nuestro Cafe was recommended by the hotel staff. When we arrive by taxi ($6), we were... More

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.
