Directly across the courtyard and street from the front door of the downtown cathedral in Guayaquil is a great little restaurant in the Continental Hotel called La Canoa.

Our friend Gus (who is from Ecuador) recommended this as a great place to go for Ecuadorian food, and Monica the English speaking secretary from Dream Kapture hostel reiterated the same opinion. We have to say . . . we agree! If you only have one opportunity to sample various forms of typical Ecuadorian fare, you won´t be disappointed at this establishment. We were there at lunch time and it was busting at the seams with locals . . . always a good sign! Not a great deal of quiet romantic atmosphere, but the food is great and they have a varied selection so you should be able to find something to your liking.
