So this place had caught my eye as I had strolled the Malecon a few times now so I decided to stop in for a light Sunday lunch. The Malecon was buzzing with people but the place seemed fairly empty, we assumed it was due to the prices being set for tourists and the Malecon seemed to be bustling with... More

This is a lively place with a great location on the Malecon. They have a terrace on the Guayas River, and a decent menu. We didn't have much trouble as non Spanish speakers even though they didn't give us English menus. We had ceviche and quesadillas, and some cold beer on the terrace. Friendly atmosphere and tasty fod.

Try the happy hour, 2 for 1 beer. And enjoy the view located in the middle of Malecon with outside seating right at the water. Food so so! But the location priceless. Recommended for happy hour. MeuterMedia

This restaurant is situated at the north end of the Malecon. It has an upstairs, open-air deck, where you can eat while watching clumps of vegetation float by on their way to the Pacific. It has excellent local draft beers and a menu that includes fish as well as meats/burgers. We had fresh salads, ceviche and a meat, which were... More

This restaurant on the Malecon was recommended by some fellow travelers at our hotel. We stayed at the Ramada so it was a 5-minute walk which added to the appeal. We sat upstairs on the outside deck with a view of the river and enjoyed the warm evening. Happy hour seems to run every night from 5-8pm with 2 for... More

Server was helpful in recommending fish lunch, which was quite tasty and a good value. This is a good alternative for lunch on the Malecon 2000, if you wan't something more than the outdoor food vendors. Seemed to be a place frequented by people who worked in the area's office buildings. Reasonably-priced.

Expected better for that price, but the food is the same as you would get at any local fast-food place. Only time I really felt sick after eating in Ecuador (toilets had vomit all over them in the ladies', I wonder why). Only bright point was the cocktails were alright.

Because you can't eat atmosphere or service, I am giving it a 1. However, the staff and our experience here was quite unique and I'd give them a 5 for taking care of their guests. Husband and I debated that our meals here might have been in our Top 5 worst meals of our lives. No joke. Just bad. It's... More

The food was surprisingly good - very tasty. The service was mediocre. There was loud blaring music downstairs so I ate upstairs on the roof which has great views over the river - but got a bit chilly in the evening breezes.

Our hotel recommended this as a local place to have lunch. It was OK, but not terrific... The beer was cold, the food prompt, and we had portions enough. The outdoor seating was fine and cooling. Our server was great!
