Really nice restaurant. Impeccable service, excellent flavours and reasonable prices. We had crab appetizer shrimp and swordfish mains, pisco sours and wine. The wine was just house variety and bargain priced at $5.00 for a generous pour. Really enjoyed this place.

Came across this restaurant on Trip Advisor looking for a good seafood restaurant. Food was fantastic as well as the service. Probably the best meal we had in Ecuador. But it’s not cheap.

A minibus driver recommended this restaurant for a delicious "arroz de mariscos," which I wanted to savor before leaving Guayaquil. I got so much more than I expected: delicious, perfectly fried plantain chips while I waited for my arroz, served with two exquisite dipping sauces,...More
