Riviera delivers a positive result of combining both apparently diverse cultures. They meet at the seafood dishes. Ecuador has a rich and diverse fresh seafood offering which Riviera tastefully uses.

Riviera is one of the most traditional restaurants in Guayaquil. Very consistent food and service. Owners are Italian and you can notice it by the food, pasta is great and pizzza is even better.

Hi, sorry for the late respond. I was travelling:) I think that is a good option. It is elegant, but not too. It is a nice atmosphere and there is good and special food with good service at a good price.
