The restaurant is downtown and attached to a hotel right across the street from the Iguana Park. So it's a great spot to visit after visiting the Iguanas. It's a short walk from Malecon. The food is not cheap (hotel restaurant), US fast casual prices, but fair. A good mix of seafood and meat options. The ceviches were excellent, we... More

You may find it as cheap in trip advisor or foursquare. The reality is that it is plenty of cheapest options nearby. Prices in the menu are without taxes and tip (but the total is shown in a small print for each plate). Only a la carte. The food is good but not exceptional. Good service.

This restaurant serves traditional ecuadorean dishes. The food is excellent and service great. The place is a little small but they will go the extra mile to find you a table inmediately. Love this restaurant.

enjoyed the breakfast, waiters were very attentive the employees were always with a smile; I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family; suggest that the second restaurant had access for those that are unable to climb stairs, because I wanted to go and enjoy the pasta and a few drinks but because I am unable to climb stairs...

I traveled all over Ecuador on vacation and La Canoa was the best that I had in Ecuadorian Cuisine. The breakfast is incredible!! All the typical Ecuadorian food for breakfast.

This is one of the typical restaurants in Guayaquil, where you can find traditional food. Service is good, and portions are large, so the prices. You can walk away with an $80 dollar bill, for a four people meal!. But definitely would recommend the "Sausage soup", which is a medium thick soup, with black sausage. Do not be misguided by...

We went there to eat after we visited the park of iguanas and it was a good choice. The waiters helped us out immediately and also recommended a lot of dishes. Our bandera ecutoriana tasted delicious! Though, it felt very expensive for our pockets.
