Definitely a good place to taste the Ecuadorian seafood recipes, prices are a little big in comparison with similar restaurants but is a good deal. Don't miss the cazuela

We had a delicious seafood lunch here and were the only non-locals. The service was friendly, too. I highly recommend it.

Excelent food, every dish on the menu is a must. If you like fresh seafood and in good quantity for the price, this is the place to go in Guayaquil. Just be aware of parking, it´s quite crowded at noon and weekends.
