Description: GODA, is a fusion of various elements that make our restaurant & bar a unique and different place. The evolution and perfection of our space and each one of our plates along 30 years have mixed with the exquisite Asian culture giving as a result a perfect harmony between flavors and sensations. In our restaurant the presence of wood, stone, water and glass represent a philosophy of equilibrium in nature, the same is used in our dishes, combined with a high standard of service pretends apart from offering an excellent food, a different experience.

We went to this restaurant as it was one of the few open on Sunday and we were sure glad we did. We ordered two soups and the paella. All were wonderful. The service was great. I highly recommend this mid-price range restaurant.

My cheeseburger was delicious. The ambience here is quiet and peaceful. The service was spot on. Right there when I needed it.

This is a lovely place with impressive décor; linen napkins (our first in Ecuador) and a view of the street action with its massive window walls. We were there for Happy Hour and ordered our favorite: Long Island Ice Teas which were superb. BUT, despite being the only patrons at the time, we were ignored for a long while. We had to look for and attract the waiter's attention for drinks, for ordering food, for the check. He was nowhere to be found most of the time. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The promotional info on the table advertised Happy Hour "for cocktails" but did not specify any particular cocktails. The waiter did not advise on "which cocktails" might be included. So we were quite disappointed when we had to pay full price for our cocktails. These negatives brought down the high points of this establishment. In a place of this caliber, it is mystifying why the service is not up to par.

We had a wonderful meal here. High quality food, a bit pricey by Ecuadorian standards, but worth every penny.
