Food was okay but nothing to write home about!

We stopped by to eat here on a Friday evening. It was not very crowded despite being on the Malecon. The food was okay. We were surprised to hear that they were out of hamburgers. Service was okay. We thought it was expensive for what we got. If ever in Guayaquil again, we would probably not eat... read more

Maybe it depends on the dish, but after reading reviews and deciding to avoid this place, we accidentally ate here while walking the malecon and stopping here without realizing the name of the restaurant. Honestly, it's practically the only place to eat in the area, but everything we had was actually very good, and our final bill was more reasonable... More

Completely inattentive staff - I was seated in the restaurant and it took me 20 minutes from there to get a menu! Then when I had decided what to have I had to wait again for somebody to pay any attention to me, only to be told the things I wanted were not available. Would have been nice to have... More

Food was ok, price not that cheap. No ambiance, but it was on a Tuesday. The location is nice, with a nice fresh air in the evening on the rood terrace.

Actually, my dog would probably not eat it either. Burgers were dry buns with wilted lettuce, puny frozen hamburger patties, overcooked. Wings were sopping wet with sauce and the chicken beneath it was dry and tough. This place is a joke. Steer far clear of it.

Hated the food. It was not good, at all. Which is unfortunate, given the restaurant's nice location on the Malecon. Go somewhere else instead.

It was hot. We had just climbed up and back down the cerro. We thought we'd walk along the malecon for a bit and then head to a bar to cool off and rest. The malecon for a bit is not an option. Once you are in, you will have to keep going until the kids area to be able... More

We had dinner there after an afternoon on the malecon. We first had drinks and empanaditas, very good. We ordered dinner a bit later, enchiladas and filet mignon. The steak was excellent, the enchiladas were borederline cold. The service was OK, considering the waiter had to climb the stair back and forth as we were seating of the roof terrasse.... More

After many hours in airports and travel, it was a pleasure to explore the Malecon and have a beer with dinner. The photograph in the menu of the beef steak was enticing, and the waiter confirmed that it was the best dish in the house. It was expensive. However, instead of a thick juicy steak, the waiter delivered a skinny... More

Guayaquil doesn't really have much to offer on mid range priced food so we were pleased to find Resaca. Happy hour beers, a very meaty lasagna and the local traditional sausage/rice/croquette meal. All for $25. In a good location half way down the malecon. Also serves an executive lunch which looked good as we passed by the following day.. Would... More
