Went here on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews and weren't disappointed at all - the staff were friendly, the service was excellent and the quality of the food was also outstanding. Main courses range from around $10 to $30 and there is a large range of pasta, fish, chicken, mean and risotto dishes. There were 5 in our... More

Great food, great service. They give you a ballooned pita bread with a garlic sauce to spread that is really good. Great wine list. The only problem is it is becoming a little pricey. But almost everywhere you go in Guayaquil is going to be that way. It is actually cheaper to dine out in Paris, than it is to... More

Riviera has excellent meat. For a lunch we ordered lomo with champignons and was just perfect. Also the meat carpaccio as appetizer was really good. This is an Italian restaurant that you should try being in Guayaquil

It was perhaps the best seafood platter I've ever enjoyed. My only complaint is that it was not big enough, given the hungry American eaters we were dealing with. So, we ordered some additional dinners. We... More
