"Ecuadorian" French cuisine Interesting "french" dishes with a touch of Ecuadorian taste resulting in several good plates well prepared and nicely presented although, in some cases, flavor and presentation are a bit too rich and somehow "confused". Wine list: ok. Set up: "classic european". Service: excellent and correctly executed. Overall a good restaurant. Go for it if you are in... More

Dropped in here whilst staying at Oro Verde Hotel. Excellent service, good choice of wine. The duck main course unfortunately had the duck over cooked, with the meat being dry. Disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber. The fish and beef dishes were good, but not outstanding.

This is my second time visiting Guayaquil on business in the past two months. I've tried the best restaurants the city has to offer and this is my favorite by far. Excellent service and delicious meal. I had the osso bucco and soufflé from the cacao tasting menu. We spent less than $100 for three people (w no alcoholic beverages)... More

Located in an older and little threadbare hotel in the city centre, this restaurant is one of the few places we found where you can dress decently and have a first class meal. The tasting menu was excellant and creative and the service as good as it gets. The only restaurant we´d go back to.

This is a fabulous restaurant in an unlikely location, the Oro Verde hotel. The entry is from the bar, not to be confused with the 24-hour restaurant near the bar. The staff speaks limited but adequate English, and the food is superb. They even have a decent wine list. The decor is pleasant and elegant. Whether you prefer seafood or... More

OK I don't usually trust restaurants with the word "gourmet" and the like in their name but I happened to be staying at the Oro Verde and the menu, reviews etc all seemed encouraging so I figured why not check it out. Now I've been to several of the "top restaurants" in Guayaquil and I've never been overly impressed especially... More

Four of us dined at the restaurant and we were all impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. The servings were generous and were attractively plated. The service is polished and pleasant and we thought the cost was reasonable. Highly recommended for those who want to enjoy an excellent meal.

Great food. Great prices. Overall an outstanding dining experience. Anyone that complains about the English issue needs to realize that the world doesn't exist to service Americans. I recently went on my honeymoon to Tokyo and stayed at a Sheraton. To my surprise, and given that Japan was occupied by us, I found very few people spoke English - even... More
