I love this place. Everything is amazing and on top of that the owners will sit down and talk to you about life, love and food. The best combination ever. This time that I went as a vegan( well I try to be). So I had my doubts about going again. But for my surprise they have a vegan things.... read more

we went to this place since it was ranked very high, even though its far away from city center and only the taxi is $6 each way. The service was not good, although we were almost the only ones, the atmosphere just was not there at all, and most important- the food was bad: it was ALL (Humus, salad, baba... More

So ... this place is rated #1 in Guayaquil. Perhaps I had pretty high expectations. The restaurant is located in the upscale area of Sambrorondon. Yes, it's nice and pretty with a fabulous outdoor seating area. Lebanese food is not that expensive to create. $8 for Baba ganoush or humus. Hmmmm ... yes, I ordered it because I love it.... More

I believe that Mrs. Nader's cooking has no rival whatsoever in town. Quality is its namesake. I try to go there a few times a year because it is a little expensive but every time I finish eating any of its mezza, I just don't care how much I've gotta pay for them. Kibbeh nayeh is just to die for.... More

This was a nice treat for our Lebanese friend who was eager to find a place to have some cuisine from her homeland after having lived in Quito for several months. The prices were a bit steep for the portion sizes, but overall the dishes were very filling and the hummus was quite yummy as was the spinach dipping starter... More

It's like being invited to somebodys Grandma's house. The place is not posh but it has good vibes. Food tastes homemade, fresh ingredients. No frills. Waiter was very nice. I tasted and enjoyed everything on the menu. Location is great. Will repeat the experience with a theater reservation as its nearby. BTW, I'm not Lebanese!

The best Lebanese food in Guayaquil. Strongly recomended. Meat Lamb raw or in quipe, the best. Located in very nice part of the city, Samborondon, you can do many things after your dinner.

After a very long taxi drive we finally made it to La Taberna. Normally a few minute ride from our hotel, the drive was very long because of a religious festival and the theatre traffic. When we finally sat down and food was served, our tastebuds knew it was worth the wait! My son and I are vegetarians and there... More
