excellent quality and variety. Fresh food. The coffe and chocolate superb. If you include the breakfast in your stay at Continental hotel, the ratio quality/price is probably the best in the center of Guayaquil.

La Canoa is a great place to go with family or alone. The food is delicious, the waiters are very kind, and this is one of the oldest restaurants in town. Very well located across the Seminar Park.

We had lunch in this restaurant located just across the cathedral. There is a wide choice of dishes to choose from. Service is efficient and speedy. Lots of locals eat here. Prices are reasonable. Nice place but a bit noisy.

But, when you are in Guayaquil, many of the better restaurants are in hotels. So, you don't have much of a choice. La Canoa had great, traditional food. Their decor is nice, but not fancy. And, their prices were reasonable for the food quality. Best...More

Description
“La Canoa” has become an icon for tourist and locals alike who wish to sample and discover the best of the authentic local fare, Ecuadorian food at its finest. We receive an average of 48 thousand visitors each year; this year we will have awarded 11,315 days of straight, un-interrupted, 24 hour attention which is truly a record in the city’s Gastronomical circles. At “La Canoa” you can enjoy a buffet breakfast in Native Fashion or American style with a wide choice of tropical fruits, cereals, dairy products, sausage and meat products, without overlooking an old Guayaquil habit of starting the day with a “caldo de salchicha” or sausage soup or encebollado de albacora” which would be a tuna soup. These cannot be passed up!
