This place is not elegant but at the same time very autentic...you feel like in a Tapa Bar in Madrid or in any spanisch Village . food is very good and prices are reasonable. A lot of old memories, fotos and a little caotic decoration makes this place unique...i like it

We I my had the paella but it was delicious!!! Service as great and environment lovey. Plus they had good beer from Cuenca. Which in Ecuador.:: you never get good beer. So that was a huge deal! Would love to go back and try other dishes. :) .... Side note..... A bit pricey. But worth it.

I was not genuine Spanish cuisine. Very poor selection of vines. Service was ok but nothing special at all.

6 dollars for a small bottle of Heineken, 10 dollars for 5 slices of salami. Beers are not on the menu so I assume prices are set according to the customer. Not worth your time.

Since they were not, we had a late lunch there today. It would have been nice to have been hungrier and tried more dishes. We arrived around 2:30, about an hour before they close, and were immediately seated. I ordered a glass of red wine (followed by a second) and my wife had two glasses of sangria. Both were good,...

Delicious tapas with a range of beers and wines at different prices (something not to common in Ecuador). The portions are big enough to share 3 tapas between 2 people and leave feeling nicely full. By far the best food we found in this particular area of Guayaquil. It's a 4 and not a 5 because they close early, so... More

There are some places that just feel comfortable to us. La Tasca de Carlos in Guayaquil is one of them. On a recent Saturday afternoon in December, my wife and I decided to take a break from our ramblings in downtown Guayaquil and struck a route for the 9 de Octubre corridor to look for a snack. 9 de Octubre...

After attempt #2 to find this restaraunt (the sign is very flat and small). My family and I (a party of six) ordered a bunch of tapas to share. We had the octopus, antipasto, calamari, shrimp, tuna and more. To be honest a lot of them were average (but the best food I've tasted in Guayaquil). The only dish I... More
