I went to Guayaquil for business and only had half a day to explore the city. I was taken by the business party to this amazing restaurant loved by tourists and locals alike. I was suggested to order "Casuela", a typical dish made of plantain...More

The ceviche is great. The Caldo de Bola is my favorite. The service is good, there is a breakfast buffet. Great for when you are out all night partying and want something to eat after.

Respuesta: The environment is ideal for business meetings and leisure. I am pleased with the aesthetics of food and La Canoa meets it in terms of quality, presentation and decoration. The attention of the staff and the waiter's suggestions were the best, be sure you...More

Had breakfast 3 mornings, great selection. Dinner 2 nights; steak was delicious and tender 1st night and the lobster salad the 2nd night was terrific. Service was excellent. I will definitely eat there again next time I am in town.

We quite liked our meal here although I don't think it was special. Perhaps our expectation were too high.

This is a great place to get a taste of Ecuador. The menu contains many local specialties such as various types of ceviches and plantain based fare. The fact that it is open 24 hours is a great feature in a city like Guayaquil.

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!
