The best Lenanese food in Guayaquil. Everything in the menu is delicious. Try Quippe Crudo, Hovas de Uva y Col. Rice with Lamb. Worth the visit.

This was my third visit in five years and the consistency of this restaurant is solid. It is owned by a Lebanese family who are vegetarian and so there are lots of veggie choices that are wonderful. In particular there is vegetarian kibbie which I have never seen in any other Lebanese restaurant anywhere. The preparation of everything is very... More

I went with gamily and friends that love mid east food. I know that the owner is a very good chef, but it seems that the plates are not made it the restaurant itself and lacked the top class of ingredients needed; the service was poor.

Everything is good there, the only bad thing I can say about that place is that is closed on Mondays. I've been there several times and order almost everything and it's always delicious.

If you are in need of different food and happen to be in Guayaquil, then La Taberna is for you! Tastes and smells from another continent.

Mediterranean food is my favorite, its perfect for vegetarians! I live in Cuenca and coming from NYC, I really miss the diversity of cuisines I was accustomed to. Every time I go to Guayaquil, I make the trip to Samborondón for the only decent falafel I've tasted since being in Ecuador. And not just decent but delicious with just the... More

Probably the best Mediterranean restaurant in town, there is a large Lebanese community in Guayaquil but people usually enjoyed a good meal only at home or at the Lebanese Club in town. This was the first place to offer top quality Lebanese food to a broader audience. A must try is the rice with lamb, espectacular! All the mezzas are... More

I love this place. Everything is amazing and on top of that the owners will sit down and talk to you about life, love and food. The best combination ever. This time that I went as a vegan( well I try to be). So I had my doubts about going again. But for my surprise they have a vegan things.... More

we went to this place since it was ranked very high, even though its far away from city center and only the taxi is $6 each way. The service was not good, although we were almost the only ones, the atmosphere just was not there at all, and most important- the food was bad: it was ALL (Humus, salad, baba... More
