It´s been a while since my last diner at this wonderful restaurant. I love, love their tuna dishes and the grill steak in sesame seeds teriyaki sauce is superb. They have a very good wine selection within a cozy and chic environment that makes it irresistible. I hope they are still running as I´m ready and soon to come back!

The entrance of the restaurant is not very friendly, But the interior is quite interesting, with several paintings that draw attention, The restaurant creates a very different environment, without much hype, not very loud noise, The waiting time for requests is large, and the food portions are small. Despite paying dearly for a small portion, which doesn't always meet, the... More

Service was decent, ambiance superb. Ordered the ravioli and was shocked to find the quality of that of frozen ravioli or Chef Boyardee. I would have actually settled for the Chef Boyardee. At least I would have had a full meal. I would not recommend.

If you want to have a 5 star meal that exceeds all expectations, dont miss it! On our last stay we went almost every day. Among our favorites: tiradito, conchitas, tempura shrimp,... More

Food was ok.. not that great. Overpriced. Restaurant smelled funny. Tons of waiters... very few actually working.. Save your money. Overrated.

This is one of the first restaurants that I visited in Guayaquil. That experience set a very high benchmark of what dining out in Guayaquil really is. Would be great if they develop a lounge / bar area where you can have drinks and taste some of the great international/ecuadorian/peruvian dishes that are the main characteristic of this more than...
