We were two couples traveling to/from a week cruise in the Galapagos. Since our flight returning home would have left us at the airport for hours, we added in a tour of Guayaquil and dinner at Lo Nuestro before returning home. Boy, were we GLAD we did! Lo Nuestro is a charming, restaurant offering authentic Ecuadorian cuisine. Although it is in a very old and charming building, it is located in a very upscale location of Guayaquil. It is fine dining experience with white tablecloths, attention to every detail, and fabulous service. Menus in English are available; however, the servers English is limited, so an Spanish/English dictionary may be helpful. Be prepared to give yourself "at least" two hours, or MORE to dine there. This is not TGI Fridays, folks, this is a "Dining Experience." The waiters are VERY ATTENTIVE, but the Culture is not to RUSH you in and out of the restaurant as they do in the states. Since we had "limited time," I explained that to our Server, and he was so Very Accommodating! Why should you go to this restaurant to try authentic Ecuadorian cuisine? Because the locals are there celebrating anniversaries and birthdays. That is the mark of a truly fabulous restaurant when the "locals" go there. I also noticed that they ordered "family style." Meaning they ordered appetizers and entrees and served themselves from those plates family style because the portions are HUGE!!! My only recommendations would be to: (1) allow yourself "at least" 2 hours (or more) to dine there, and (2) make a reservation. The only regret is that we had to rush out of there to make our flight. The dessert cart looked AMAZING, but we did not have time for dessert. We so enjoyed our meal there. It was absolutely delicious, and the ambiance was incredible. Also, one final thought. For four people, our meal was $116 US, and that included bottled water, beers, Sangria (which was made with REAL, fresh fruit) AND all gratuities. We had so MUCH food, 1/2 of it didn't even get eaten. So the posts on this site stating this restaurant is over priced -- obviously didn't see that the gratuity (tip) is already added in. We left more gratuity the service was so exceptional :)
