After traveling more than a month in various parts of Ecuador, we have tried both expensive and economical restaurants in bigger city and in smaller towns. Cerviche and juices we paid here are at the same price we paid at Casa Gangotena in Quito, but...More

This is a place that you will go to sample the most typical dishes of Ecuador. They have a great cooking staff and whatever you choose will be of your liking. It is not as cheap as other local restaurants but is not pricy either....More

It has great traditional food but quite pricy comparing with local market. The Ecuadorian Flag dish was delicious.

Ecuadorian food is not very well-known outside Ecuador which makes it even more desirable since not everyone can tell you exactly what is like. La Canoa offers you traditional Ecuadorian food but served in a way that is like eating high cuisine. The prices are...More

Description
“La Canoa” has become an icon for tourist and locals alike who wish to sample and discover the best of the authentic local fare, Ecuadorian food at its finest. We receive an average of 48 thousand visitors each year; this year we will have awarded 11,315 days of straight, un-interrupted, 24 hour attention which is truly a record in the city’s Gastronomical circles.
At “La Canoa” you can enjoy a buffet breakfast in Native Fashion or American style with a wide choice of tropical fruits, cereals, dairy products, sausage and meat products, without overlooking an old Guayaquil habit of starting the day with a “caldo de salchicha” or sausage soup or encebollado de albacora” which would be a tuna soup. These cannot be passed up!
