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!

My son and I had lunch here today after visiting the park across the street. The food is pretty much average Ecuadorian fare. You can find the same quality elsewhere for half the price - for example a few blocks away in the food courts at the Malecon. The service is good and the waiters are professionals. But I expect...

Went to restaurant because it was in my hotel. The service was good as was the food. A beautiful restaurant to dine. However I found it to be expensive, even for a gringo on business. I will not return because of price, value. The wine was very expensive, double of what I had paid at another restaurant similar to this... More

We cae in for coffee and maybe some cake ... but when we saw the prices, we just had coffee ... which was ok but not amazing ... if it would not have been so expensive, we might have come back for lunch.

The food here isn't that great. Too much salt and over cooked meat. I originally wanted a hamburger, which was by available and the sprite I ordered was flat but I suppose that's what you get with fountain pop. The only pro: 24 hours?
