Much of Guayaquil's dining scene can be found along a stretch of Avenida Víctor Emilio Estrada in the Urdesa neighborhood. Adventurous travelers could just hop a cab to Urdesa and walk around until something strikes their fancy.

You can get good sushi at Sake (tel. 04/2888-303), on Víctor Emilio Estrada and Circunvalación Sur, and at Noe Sushi Bar (tel. 04/2083-389), in the Centro Comercial San Marino. For a contemporary take on typical Ecuadorean fare, try Olmedo (tel. 04/2389-973), on Las Monjas 120 and Circunvalación. Finally, for fine Italian cooking in a refined environment, Riviera (tel. 04/2883-790), at Víctor Emilio Estrada 707 and Calle Ficus, is also top notch.
