This is a quiet and pleasent place to eat, specially because there is possible to find local food on breakfast beyond international food, which allow the visitor to experience local gastronomy!

This is a busy, hopping fairly priced restaurant popular with both tourists and locals. Everything was delicious. I won't recommend any particular dish because unfortunately two of us got diarrhea the following day which lasted three days. I can't be sure where we picked it up but I hope it wasn't here. We really liked this restaurant. It is directly... More

Everything in the average, not bad and not excellent. I remeber that cheviche was ordinary, and the dessert was really too sweet, too creamy and too big, very usa style.

Every time I visit Guayaquil I have to stop by and eat at La Canoa, their dishes are authentic and delicious. The serivice is excellent and the fresh fruit juices are the best. Also it is a great location because you get to visit Parque Seminario across the street where you find the friendliest iguanas.

As a foreigner, you must be careful where you eat to not get food-poison. La Canoa is a safe and popular place where you can eat with peace of mind. 3- Delicious freshly-made... More
