Food was good a littlle pricey

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.

As part of staying at the Hotel Continental breakfast was included at the 24 hour cafe opposite. Breakfast had good options. We ate there in the evening but felt it was overpriced and had no vegetarian options.

Many years ago it a was a good place to go. The place needs a renovation. They have the same chairs and tables for more than 20 years. Some food is still very good but the enviroment is terrible, crowdy and the staff is not friendly enough.

After reading the latest reviews, we were a little dubious about this restaurant, suspicious of its high rating amongst the Trip Advisor listings in Guayaquil. However, as we were staying in the city centre and we wanted somewhere local to eat on our first night, we gathered our courage in both hands and walked down there. First impressions were not...

I had chorizo with eggs, rice, and a potato. My wife had shrimp. Both dishes were very tasty. They give you a very small amount of this salsa/pico de gallo that is so... More

We just arrived in Guayquil from Cuenca and after reading some reviews thought we would try La Canoa. A large bowl of potatoe soup with shrimp, a large bowl of rice and chicken soup were tasty and so they should have been. Add 2 beers, tax and mandatory tip and the bill was $34.00. I reiterate, it was tasty. Not... More

My girlfriend and I showed up in downtown late Saturday night. Everything was closed except this restaurant!! They had WiFi and hot, native food. Ended up saving the night by filling our bellies and allowing contact with our host family. Aces!
