Our guide recommended this place when we asked for a local seafood restaurant. It was quite far from our hotel ( Hilton Colon) but we had arranged for a taxi before hand. The restaurant was quaint and charming with little rooms with cozy tables together. There were lots of old photographs on the walls and it reminded me of visiting... More

Great food, service and decor. A must while in Guayaquil. Restaurant Lo Nuestro is a very typical old Guayaquil place to visit.Also, the area is full of entertainment at night during the weekends. Can combine dining and dance.

I had a very nice meal here -- the food was very good, though not what I'd call great. (I had llapingacho, sangria and passion fruit meringue). Good service. Nice location.

Was suggested this restaurant by our tour guide and we were not disappointed for the last day we had in Ecuador. We had the peppercorn steak which came with a good healthy number of sides for a reasonable price.

The restaurant has an English menu available. The food is excellent and good portions. The dessert cart was amazing!! Lots of local patrons, not a tourist restaurant.

We (four adults, one 16 year old) wanted to get some fresh seafood and Ecuadorian food before leaving Guayaquil (we were only there one day on the say home from the Galapagos). We found exactly what we were looking for at Lo Nuestro. We started off by sharing a platter of Ecuadorian appetizers (empanadas, a sweet corn tamale, a yucca... More

For a fine traditional dining experience in Eucador, this is an excellent choice. The seafood is delightful and the atmosphere is warm and inviting as well as reasonably priced

Since we had eaten at our favorite neighborhood restaurant four times, we thought it was time for a change. And this was a good decision. We really enjoyed a "fancy" dinner with tablecloths. My husband enjoyed a shrimp dish with a coconut sauce. I went lighter after a late lunch and ordered a Caesar salad. Did I miss the tocino... More
