Went there from a recommendation from our hotel. We got several dishes and found that the food just wasn't very good. Would not recommend.

The restaurant is on the same site of the Hotel Continental. They have a good choice of typical food. I had ceviche de camarones and grilled fish and they were both very tasty. Atmosphere on the ground floor part of the restaurant is quite informal and they also have a smarter area on the upper floor. Prices are a bit... More

A little bit expensive for the type of food but all is good. Menu is extensive. Try chivo seco is delicious. Also guanabana juice.

La Canoa is a good downtown choice if you want to try Ecuadorean specialties, located in the Continental Hotel. Very reasonably priced, lots of options and popular. My Colombian colleague also thought they were authentic and good quality. The outside seating appears odd at first side - it appears to overlook the hotel road entrance but in fact cars no... More

We ordered two of the sampler dishes, a hamburger and the chicken sanduche/sandwich. The samplers had a nice selection of different meat items (the chicharron was especially tasty). The hamburger was okay, the chicken sandwich was more like a shredded chicken salad sandwich. Service was very fast since it was not busy at 5pm. Our waiter was very friendly. The... More

The food was okay but expensive, especially the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. The waiters were friendly and checked on you regularly.

Our dinner at La Canoa was fine: food was good and our waiter was kind. But the best surprise was breakfast: I can easily believe it is the best buffet breakfast in town, as the restaurant advertises! The selection of foods was really huge and everything tasted great. We would recommend it!

This was one of the best meals we had in Ecuador. The green plantain soup was amazing. I would recommend this place despite the price.
