If you want to have the real flavor of coastal ecuadorian cuisine, you have to try La Canoa. My favorite dish are breaded shrimps, but you have to try Guatita and all the Banderas they offer. If you are staying at Hotel Continental, you will...More

Don't know what people are here in all the excellent commentaries, but I didn't get any of that. The service was really really slow, drinks arrived almost at the end of the dinner. The ceviche was boring, and the "bandera" just fine. It is expensive,...More

I think this restaurant is overrated. I waited an hour for a cordon Bleu that was 20$. It was fairly good but too expensive for what it was. And my fries never arrived.

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!
