Muelle del Marisco (Seafood Dock)
An area which is highly recommended if you are a lover of good seafood.
For tasty seafood!
The Malecón del Estero Salado promenade is the shellfish capital of Guayaquil, unmissable if you are a fan of seafood. It is not possible to recommend only one restaurant which means your first step should be to view all the menus and terraces with views available so that you may choose. Amongst the places on offer, you will come across El Cangrejal del Muelle -which specialises in cangrejos criollos (a traditional crab dish)-, Embarcadero 41 -with Ecuadorian/Peruvian fusion cuisine-, and finally the restaurant called Muelle del Marisco, situated near the Puente del Velero, with nautical decoration inside and terraces. However, the seafood speciality is something that is typical of the whole city so you mustn't limit yourself only to this quay. Lovers of crab cooked in every way possible and other seafood delights are recommended to visit the Red Crab in the Urdesa district.
