Good option when looking for a local seafood restaurant. It gives you a good sample of the food from this area of the Coast. Friendly staff. Good location. Good atmosphere

We took a taxi (very reasonable) from our hotel to thsi restaurant. As the taxi stopped, a security guard from the restaurant opened the cab door for us. Decor is nothing fancy, just excellent seafood. Menu was in spanish and english. My wife and I both had the shrimp and rice. It was delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. When... More

Definitely a good place to taste the Ecuadorian seafood recipes, prices are a little big in comparison with similar restaurants but is a good deal. Don't miss the cazuela

We had a delicious seafood lunch here and were the only non-locals. The service was friendly, too. I highly recommend it.

Excelent food, every dish on the menu is a must. If you like fresh seafood and in good quantity for the price, this is the place to go in Guayaquil. Just be aware of parking, it´s quite crowded at noon and weekends.

Clean and all seems to be very fresh seafood. If you re stuck at airport- take a cab, much better than sitting at the Guayaquil airport, and for sure do NOT eat at... More

A big platter of plantain and dips is complimentary and was delicious. ( 1st photo ) The service was quick and two meals and two soft... More
