It's a great place to hang out and drink a beer after a long walk in hot Guayaquil. The service it's not great but I didn't mind, was just chilling.... Great view of the river side...

Food was really correct, the service nice. The roof terrace is split in different areas so that each group can enjoy with disturbing too much the others (we were a group of 20...). The price was really good. The location is good.

The food was fine, but what I liked about this place was having a relaxing beer with a view of the wide Guayas river.

The location is OK, the view is great, but the service was very poor, and the quality of the cocktails was terrible. Drink prices are lower than some neighboring bars, and for good reason--the cocktails were so bad they were nearly undrinkable. Waiter did not come to the table at all, instead sat near the bar on his cellphone. Advice:... More

Food - Ecuadorian but not a big selection Interior - Interesting to look around while you wait for your meal (and you may wait) Service - so-so Location - overlooks the Guayas River so decent view Artur's was listed in our guide book so we went. We arrived a bit early so we had our choice of seating which was... More

After a hot day and several business meetings, there is a great and safe spot at the end of the Malecon, a hill called Las Peñas. Many cool spots, but I liked Arthur's because of it's lively environment, good food and great drink selection. Their wings are specially good. They have live music on some evenings. Great for people watching.

Advertised hours are not so. 6 pm is 6:30 pm or 7 pm or, according to local, not at all. Service was poor. Even after crossing the language barrier (I know enough Spanish), a fourth drink didn't show up until after three of us had two. The appetizer showed up as desert. The restaurant's "specialties" are not available. Ordered fish.... More

I was staying nearby so ate here but wouldn't bother going back. So so service, long wait for food (despite only 1 other small table), 2 out of 3 things I ordered off the menu weren't available. The food itself was pleasant enough, but nothing special. As another reviewer mentioned there was loud music (bad 80s music videos) playing upstairs... More
