We went there on our trip to Ecuador and expecting great things because of the excellent TripAdvisor reviews. The food was fine but not excellent. The menu had a large selection so maybe I didn't select the right dish. But given what I have a...More

We quite liked our meal here although I don't think it was special. Perhaps our expectation were too high.

This is a great place to get a taste of Ecuador. The menu contains many local specialties such as various types of ceviches and plantain based fare. The fact that it is open 24 hours is a great feature in a city like Guayaquil.

No, this is not a fancy place. It looks more like a cheaper version of a family restaurant, but the ceviche was the best I ever had. And so was my daughter's one.

We were staying at another hotel nearby, but our guide recommended that we go to this restaurant (in a neighbouring hotel) for the fish and the Ecuadorian food. So we did and we both had ceviches, which were excellent

We have to wait more than 30 minutes to get our order ready! Moreover they offer lobster, looked good, but they charged with 5 dollars because all lobster dishes are cooked in another hotel's restaurant next to La Canoa (both restaurants belong to Hotel Continental,...More

Description
“La Canoa” has become an icon for tourist and locals alike who wish to sample and discover the best of the authentic local fare, Ecuadorian food at its finest. We receive an average of 48 thousand visitors each year; this year we will have awarded 11,315 days of straight, un-interrupted, 24 hour attention which is truly a record in the city’s Gastronomical circles. At “La Canoa” you can enjoy a buffet breakfast in Native Fashion or American style with a wide choice of tropical fruits, cereals, dairy products, sausage and meat products, without overlooking an old Guayaquil habit of starting the day with a “caldo de salchicha” or sausage soup or encebollado de albacora” which would be a tuna soup. These cannot be passed up!
