You must take your hunger and money to the Caracol Azul. And leave some room for the desserts. They are famous in the city!
Fame and elegance.
Since 1975 the owners of the Caracol Azul restaurant -located near Boulevard Nueve de Octubre- have endeavoured to turn it into a symbol of excellence and a gourmet experience which has remained until today. On its menu, you can choose between seafood or meat specialities. The prices are relative to its location, elegance and renown, which is why it is worth going prepared money-wise. Amongst its strengths is, interestingly, its opening hours. The dinners don't finish early, as usually occurs in other restaurants in Guayaquil. Here you will find the kitchen open from 6pm to 11pm. The seafood and meat specialities are typical of the city but they do put their own twist on the desserts: passion fruit mousse, coconut flan, charlotte cake, meringue with prunes. You have to have an appetite to go to this restaurant and you should ask the waiter to give you advice on where to start.
