The Hilton Colon and local rep from Lindblad both recommended this restaurant for our last night. Presumably it is popular with both locals and foreigners, but when we were there all but one table consisted on foreigners returning from Galapagos Islands tours. We tried a couple of different appetizers and for main courses had giant prawns in garlic sauce and... More

If you travel to Guayaquil you will be amazed with the quality of the food vs. the price. The dishes are spectacular! Expensive for the locals but very cheap for foreigners! The place is beautifully decorated, it is quiet ... as for a romantic dinner or to propose some business to somebody (I do not know why I thought of... More

After a nice private tour of historic downtown Guayaquil, we asked our guide to join us for lunch, and he brought us to this location. Of course, there was some handshaking going on with the owner, but we were happy to buy lunch for our guide, as well. There was a good selection on the menu with mostly local cuisine,... More

In search of an authentic dish to mark my last night in Guayaquil, this restaurant sufficed for my needs. It's located in the nicer part of town and has a very good ambiance. The place seemed to be a truly local haunt with the smattering of tourists, so I suppose this is more authentic than otherwise. Food and service were... More

This is the most iconic restaurant in guayaquil. The old decor and the ambience is fantastic. The food is to dye for. Always ask for the "Muelitas de Cangrejo"…

There is not a better place in Ecuador for authentic Ecuadorian food. Fish Ceviche and Cazuela are the best dishes. if you want to eat authentic ecuadorian food in a safe place this is the place to go. A must place for all visitors to Guayaquil.

My husband and I went to Lo Nuestro while in Guayaquil on our way to Galapagos on Saturday, October 15. We took a $5 cab from our hotel, the Oro Verde, and the drive took about 15 minutes. They do speak English and have English menus. Food was fresh, tasty, and service was very good. We went at 7:30 pm... More

We asked the concierge from our hotel for a typical Ecuadorian restaurant and they recommended Lo Nuestro. The inside of the restaurant was pictures of all Guayaquil with old colonial type furnitures. They served us with delicious garlic bread with salsa sauce with a little tinged of spice. We had the most delicious shrimp ceviche ive ever had that i... More
