I was impressed with the variety of typical dishes from this region. The breakfast buffet had everything, from manguera soup to America breakfast, bacon, pancake and waffles. The waiters were impecable and the head waiter was very attentive. I would recommend taking a visit to taste the delicacies of Guayaquil. Great job everyone!

This used to be a must when visiting Guayaquil...unfortunately its prices have gone through the roof ($17 for a small portion of blood cockle ceviche!?!?!). Bathrooms were filthy and service poor. There are much better and cheaper options for traditional Ecuadorian food in Guayaquil.

The mixture of American and Ecuadorian cuisine was a nice touch to a varied buffet. Although small, it was sufficient to accommodate everyone when we were there.
