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.

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
