Perfect for traditional and late-night dinners. The shrimp ceviche is a real spectacle of flavour.
Open 24 hours. 365 days.
If you would like to experience an authentic Guayaquilean tradition, you cannot miss the La Canoa restaurant, situated in the Hotel Continental and open since the 1970's. It is the perfect place for hungry night birds as it opens 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. It appears that these opening hours arose from the tradition in the 1960's of having dinner outside on the Malecón promenade, in the early hours of the morning and eating typical local dishes while chatting away. When these coastal dinners were banned, the idea came about of offering the locals a place where they could maintain their custom and so La Canoa was born. Amongst its specialities the ceviche de camarón (shrimp ceviche) stands out, naturally, and the rice dishes accompanied by local seafood from the region. For those who have already had dinner and only wish to have a drink accompanied by some quiet music, there is the lounge area in the same restaurant.
