They had sports playing... More

We were staying at the Hilton Colon Guayaquil and this restaurant is 3 blocks away across the street. In terms of the bad reviews, please manage your expectations. The food options in Guayaquil is pretty much nice but more expensive restaurants inside hotels or inexpensive places where locals eat. This is not Lima Peru, which is the foodie capital of... More

The food here is very good! Steakhouse with your typical options. I had the "almuerzo" and it was all good including the juice. It isn't the cheapest place in Guayaquil but you will enjoy the food.

I am glad the restaurant has expanded to 5 more restaurants throughout the city. We went to the one on the Francisco de Orellana. The service was slow but friendly. The salad bar lacked more items. The parrillada came prepared as requested and the flavors were still as I remember, tasty, juicy and with a little bit of every meat... More

My order was so big that I asked... More
