Can't complain about the food but it was a little expensive and the service wasn't great. Simple decor and furniture, I've eaten at much worse places in Guayaquil.

You can tell the quality of any restaurant by the presence and cleanliness of its restrooms. In Cocolón of Plaza Orellana the restrooms are a mess. It was not clean at all. See pictures. On top of that the service has been declining over the time. In this occasion the waiter didn't attend us as needed. He was walking all... More

I got there at 8:45 pm. They didn't have several dishes and the server didn't even apologize for that. My mom and my wife were very hungry so we stayed. Their rice was cold and the orange juice was very watery. I definitely don't recommend this place.

Cocolon is located in the north of Guayaquil, it´s a restaurant where they sell typical food, its environment is nice because its decor is rustic, accompanied by relaxing music. Customer service was excellent. When you arrive they bring you an aperitif made with fried rice, platano and chilli pepper sauce. The food is a bit expensive but it worth enjoying... More

This restaurant recommended by hotel, however, nothing special, wines ridiculous and overall quite expensive.

We visited Cocolon in Francisco de Orellana with the intention of trying Guayaquil's local food. The food was nice but the restaurant can balance better the amount of carbs vs. protein. The staff could be better trained to be more customer oriented. The site need maintenance, specially the bathrooms.

Cocolon is perfect for someone who just flew into Guayaquil and wants a crash course in the cuisine of the country. From caldo de bole to llapengacho, you get a good view of everything. My big complaint is that it is expensive for Ecuador.

This is another local food chain that serves Ecuadorean typical food, good environment for families and friends. Food quality overall is good but nothing spectacular and food prices are adequate.
