Stay away! Most call this the biggest tourist trap restaurant on the malecon. One try was enough for us. Poor food, typical Ecuadorian service at best, topped by outrageous prices.

This place is very attractive. The outside has a ship shape all of nice and shiny wood work. Food was good, portions were good until the server came back to the us to let us know that they didn't have any avocado as we ordered . But otherwise all was good. Price and presentation was good.

Our guide took us here. It was a good place to eat at but unfortunately they were out of a few of the things we tried to order/
Still was ok.

I just returned from Ecuador (1 Sep 16) after about three weeks exploring the beautiful country. Went to Salinas to be able to check the environment there and see about real estate possibilities. This restaurant has a nice face to it and it has a nice view - location is great - That"s where anything positive about this restaurant ends

The service was horrendous (to say the least) Just one example - asked for an garlic sauce (which was available - nothing special) and I am still waiting for it. The fish was so uncooked it was disgusting.

Anyway, I don't like writing bad reviews but this restaurant deserves to be out of business. I communicated my concerns to both the server and to the manager and got a sign of the hand - "sorry that's what we offer" Do not ruin your day by going to this place
