Excellent beef and shrimp in an unusual setting

This is NOT a tourist trap...... More locals were dining there than visitors and obviously the secret is out as to how tasty this place is! We split 1000grams of steak, called la plancha or tenderloin and although not medium as we asked, we could cook it on the barbecue and it was delicious... read more

I look forward to eating here every time I come to Ecuador. The one across the Hilton is my favorite. Good servers and really good quality meats. The sangria is also very good

This is my favorite place to eat steak in Guayaquil. They are the most consistent in serving steak that is tender. I've eaten lots of other items on their menu and have no complaints about anything. However, I come here to eat steak and that's what I usually get. The baked potato with cheese sauce is great. If I'm there... More

Check the "Pecho de Paloma" or any "Bife". One portion serves 2 or 3 people. Very good meat, "parrilladas" and attentive service.

It used to be one of my favorites but spending almost 30 for 2 is pricy. I must say service is excellent in plaza colonia, but prices make me think twice and do the math. Taste is good.

If you like meat, this is the place. I like the Cuadril, or the Bife de Chorizo medium rare. Excellent.

The grilled meats are outstanding, as agreed by just about anyone who has eaten at Nato's. What is fascinating is the long, long grill itself with several cooks all turning great beef constantly.

For some reason, people are still going out and eat at this place. It is way past its glory days and just serve you whatever they have that day. This place was famous for it's "Pecho de Paloma", but they no longer came. It is usually pretty crowded with people wanting to celebrate something. They're prices aren't cheap and the... More

Red meat is the Sanctum Santorum of this steaktemple located in Urdesa Central. For those asado devotes its owner El Ñato Garcia made beef heaven a place on earth. If you like yours well-done, medium or rare, La Parrilla del ñato offers some of the best, biggest, juiciest steaks in town.
