The walls are appointed with historic newspaper clippings. The staff is knowledgable, polite and prompt. The food was delicious and fairly priced. Could not ask for anything more.

The Hotel Colon and Lonely Planet both recommended Lo Nuestro for Ecuadorian Food. The restaurant is in a historic house, furnished with antiques and patronized by both "tourists" and locals. Staff were fluent in both English and Spanish and helped us through the extensive menu. Our table of 3 shared the "mixed Seafood Grill" for an appetizer--a platter of octopus,... More

Lo Nuestro was recommended by my client for a celebratory meal. There were 8 of us total and our food was served promptly together. We enjoyed appetizers together, all delicious.

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.

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.
