Really famous 24/7 service, food is tasty and prices are low. As per Guayaquil's people a must to eat when visiting the city. Average looking of the place makes you think that is just one more.

I didn't like this place very much, although I understand many do, Here they have all kind of ethnic (Ecuadorian) food, but I tried some in other places and it was better

It was convenient we were staying at the Continental Hotel, not a lot of restaurants close by for eating. The food was good but a little pricey.
