My husband and I spent the past weekend in Guayaquil for a birthday celebration. We enjoy fine dining and found a high class restaurant that not only served exquisite food, but the atmosphere makes you feel like royalty with silver plates, roses, painted murials throughout, and a beautiful atmosphere. The place is Le Gourmet, a beautiful french restaurant found within the Hotel Oro Verde. The prices are not cheap, but not near as high as some high class restaurants in the U.S. It's worth a try if you don't mind spending more for a memorable experience in fine dining.
