This place is quite crowded every night. And not only for dinner.
I was recommended by some friends to have the ‘rice dishes’. In fact the arroz con camarones (shrimps) is absolutely delicious. Also tried other dishes (ex. Curry with shrimps), all excellent quality.
Let me begin by mentioning there are two Picanterias La Culata right across the street from each other, presumably owned by the same entity. Both are open air restaurants and very warm and humid. The ceiling fans may have been installed for psychological benefit, as...we dripped with sweat during our entire meal and our cold beers got warm pretty quickly. Nevertheless, we had a good dinner with excellent and friendly service. The rice with shrimp was delicious and so plentiful it could have been shared. Prices were very low for seafood. We would recommend it if it had air conditioning.More
This restaurant was 2 blocks from our apartment in Guayaquil. It has two separate dining rooms, located on opposite sides of the street. The menu and food are the same, so grab a seat in the dining room on whichever side of the street you...find yourself. The menu consists of a lot of seafood, including the ubiquitous ceviche. We shared the Pescado Encebollado as an appetizer, and then ordered Ceviche de Concha, and Pescado Al Ajillo as our entrees. The Pescado Encebollado and Pescado Al Ajillo were excellent. The Ceviche was very good, but had just a bit more lime than others we have had in Ecuador. Overall the food was very good, and at a great price point for the quality.More
Big plates and big drinks. The menu offer much to chose from. Possibly my favorite restaurant so far in Ecuador. The prices are a bit more expensive than the simplest restaurants but much cheaper than tourist restaurants. Main courses ranges from 7 to 18 dollars....Soups from $2.50. The atmosphere is nice.More
We loved everything about this place! In search of ceviche on our first night in Ecuador, we followed an online referral here, to find two locations across the street from each other. We chose the more open one with the sidewalk table seating and were...immediately greeted by a friendly man and a bowl of very distinctive & delicious corn nuts, that were nothing like the related snack you find in the U.S. (...and that we grew very fond of before our Ecuador trip was done.) Everything on the menu seemed interesting & sounded good -- as it turned out none of us ordered ceviche, but we loved every bite! Between the uniquely local atmosphere, the great selection of Ecuadorian dishes, the delicious food, and the casual setting (and of course the corn!), it became one of our most memorable meals/restaurants from the vacation.More
