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.

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

The walls are appointed with historic newspaper clippings. The staff is knowledgable, polite and prompt. The food was delicious and fairly priced. Could not ask for anything more.

Went to Lo Nuestro for a family dinner. Great ambiance - a converted home - and it felt like you were actually eating at home but with a staff. Good was excellent. Wait staff very attentive and accommodating. I had La Bandera de Marisco and couldn't even come close to finishing it. Everyone's dish looked really good and from the... More
