I went to El Nuevo Sea Flowers the last time I was in the area - exactly 4 years ago. Would I be disappointed this time? Not at all. Ateneo is still providing wonderful food, The setting is nice, and the service excellent. I used to think the best patacones in Ecuador were to be had at Quino in Otavalo.... More

This is a real sea flower in Same, Esmeraldas. The owner is so attentive to every detail of the restaurant that it makes you feel like in museum! The quality of food is one of the best in Ecuador. The drinks are so well prepared that you immediately forget about the prices (they are not low) and just enjoy one... More

Maybe the best spot to go for dinner at casablanca. Food is really good, drinks are good, but be aware of the invoice in the end. The prices are really high and it felt a little bit like a tourist trap!

Although the front picture on this page does look quite Ecuadorian standard, the food is not. It's amazing, fresh, unbelievably tasty without being overwhelmingly fatty or salty, just the perfect amount to let the ingredients show their whole taste potential without processing them too much. All the dishes come fresh out of the oven, still sizzling on the iron pans,... More

I have been to Sea Flower quite a few times. The food is really nice and the service is good, it is a great place to relax and enjoy a good meal. The only problem is the prices are not on the menu and you can end up paying ridiculous prices especially for drinks.

We went here for lunch and then came back for dinner the same day! The food was delicious and the drinks were not only aesthetically pleasing but delicious too. Interesting artwork makes the experience memorable, as well.

Hidden gem on the beach in Same, Atacames, Ecuador. Unfortunately it is located behind le Tereza restaurant, which is right on the beach. But great ambience with hanging bottles, vines and plants. Antonea was a gracious host and extremely accommodating. We ate there several times but the last night was very special. We asked Antonea for his suggestion for dinner... More

We found this restaurant really special in June of 2010 and were looking forward to another spectacular meal in August of 2013. While the service remained extraordinarily good, the quality of the food had declined seriously. We were so disappointed since our first meal there was great. Perhaps understandably it seems to have turned into a neighborhood cocktail lounge to... More

We rode to the Seaflower in an "ecological taxi" which is a cart attached to a motorcycle. If that was not unique enough, the meal was even more so. Owner/Chef/Server Antonea served a delicious meal with the most amazing presentation, The fried calamari was the best I've ever eaten served alongside fresh lettuce and avocado drizzled with a tangy mustard...
