We went to this restaurant because it was close to our hostel and it was super nice. The service was incredibly fast and waiters very kind. Even though everything seemed to be perfect, I leave 4 stars just because I really wanted to try the dessert called 3 leches and they didn't have it :(

We knew that this place gets mixed reviews and chose it really because it was just across the street from our hotel and were not sure how safe it was to walk through the streets of Guayaquil at night. It turned out to be a great choice. There were hundreds of families still in the Park, with lots of young... More

I feel bad giving Resaca a poor rating, because it really seems like it would be a place of higher quality due to its location and the service. The waiter was attentive, very much so when in comparison to typical Ecuadorian standards. They have a very nice spot in the Malecon park overlooking the Guayas River, the building is newer,...

So we stopped in here along the touristy boardwalk and had some crab puffs and crab ceviche. It was standard fair. We were looking for crabs and beer, but they don´t start serving the crabs and beer until after 8 p.m. If you are in Guayaquil and into the nightlife and you haven't been here, I guess you could go....

We expected lots of restaurants on the Malecon. Not so much. We tried Resaca for lunch. Attentive waiter, English spoken, air conditioning good on hot steamy day. Lunch specials cheap and fast (and widely ordered by local office workers on lunch break). Food average, portions large. I tried the enchiladas; my boyfriend had the set lunch. Blah.

The food is divers, we ate Chevice and Lasagna, Oyster are on the menu too.... More

Place and settings are nice. Waiters are very attentive and service is fast. A lot of people from nearby offices/work come here for lunch which is fun. Having said all that, the food is not above mediocre. And that is still the main reason to go and eat somewhere...

We went back twice, first with 2 4 1 cocktails and then the wings & beer special - pretty decent service and overall ambiance so ended up with dessert and another drink ...however the return was a let down. The staff seemed completely unmotivated (perhaps as all their friends were out being Halloween) and the wing/beer special we had again... More

Chose this restaurant during a walk along the Malecon 2000. My first experience ordering a meal in Ecuador, I learned the best choice for a good, inexpensive lunch is to order the special. Soup, fish or chicken, rice, salad, dessert and juice drink was $4. Locro de papa seems to be a traditional Ecuadorian soup, usually served with sliced avocado... More
