The sandwiches were good and the juice was ok. What I really didn't like was how hard they were trying to fit their theme of... I wanna say surfer or hippie or something.

I really liked frutabar from the very beginning when they didn't serve alcoholics drinks and there were only smoothies, sandwiches and salads which I loved. I guess I stopped going because it became pricey and there were many other options that were good for less. I tried recently the cocktails and they were not only delicious but generous. The overall... More

I waited 20 and so minutes for 2 mojitos and a small cheese sandwich. The drinks were good, but waiting for so long is just a nonsense. I don't plan to go back anytime soon.

Came here for a fruit juice and snack one afternoon while we were in Guayaquil. It's a lovely little cafe, with great air conditioning (much needed in Guayaquil) and arty decoration. The chairs and tables are painted like fruits! There's a fantastic selection of fruit juices at reasonable prices, and they're huge! We had watermelon, which was delicious. They also... More

If you're on a backpackers budget this place is a little on the pricey side for what you get but the smoothies are very delicious, they are always blasting the a/c so it's a nice refuge from the heat of Guayaquil. The chicken avocado sandwich was awesome! Service was good and they have surfing videos on the tv's if you... More
