“Delicious food and good service”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

I like many of the dishes they offer here. I have gone many times and my favorites are locro de papa, sango de camaron and fritada. The smoothies are also really good. Prices are regular and the decoration of the place is really ecuadorian style

“Good hearty food”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We ate in restaurant Cocolon during a recent stay in Guayaquil, we ate in the one down town located at Pedro Carbo y 9 de Octubre across from Plaza Vicente Rocafuerte, we came across Cocolon by chance whilst looking for somewhere to eat in the area, in fact as we were walking past they were just opening up for the evening

I think it was all traditional dishes on the menu, I cant remember the names off the dishes on the menu but I had a dish which consisted of rice, beef, egg, sweet corn, plantain and cheese, there was also a bit of avocado served with it as well, my girlfriend had a similar looking dish which consisted of rice, chicken, egg, sausage and plantain

The restaurant was starting to get busy with locals as we were leaving, always a good sign when you see locals eating in a place!

If I was in the area again and struggling to find a restaurant I would go back there

“A nice introduction to Ecuador”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

After 14 hours of travel, the cold beer and delicous food -- including an interesting appetizer of thinly sliced crispy plantains, with dip and "cocolon" (tasted like uncooked, fried rice) -- was a wonderful introduction to Ecuador.
