    I would highly recommend Casa Julian. The food and service were exceptional. The restaurant was noisy because of an event being held outside. It took away from the experience to a small degree as dinner didn’t feel intimate as we had to speak loudly to be heard. But that is my only complaint.

    Excelente opción para quienes privilegian la calidad de la alta cocina por encima de la cantidad... el lugar es espectacular al ser un joya arquitectónica de la época colonial... Quizás llama la atención que los comensales vistan cualquier tipo de ropa... quizás sería mejor exigir al menos ropa casual y no deportiva

    El lugar vale la pena conocerlo, es muy lindo. Hicimos el tasting de 5 cursos, la experiencia fue buena, la comida no estaba de bien como esperaba, pero los platos grandes individuales que no eran parte del tasting estaban mejor. El pulpo es lo mas rico que comí.

    It was a wonderfull expeience. Food was amazing, service too, but i didn´t reciev my bill at the final. I must say parking lot is a lil far, and the road is irregular and shady, but it´s part of the experince i guess.

    The entire experience was fantastic, from the ambiance to the service, and of course, the food! Our family had a wide range of items from appetizers, mains, and desserts, even the chef's 6 course menu, and everything was absolutely delicious. I tried to think of ANYTHING negative to say about the place, and the only thing I could think of is that the ice cream is a surprise assortment of flavors, and one of them was coffee, which I don't care for. Thats the worst thing I can possibly say about the place (and my husband liked it, so it still got eaten!). Everything else was absolutely perfect!!

    La comida, estuvo buena, pero no tienen claro las horas sobre de que hora hasta que hora es un brunch y cuando inicia el almuerzo. Segundo los meseros no están preparados para servir los platos ya que los traían sin algo para poder servirse, al igual que las salsas y demás, el vino lo traían caliente y la respuesta era que el vino se toma al y ambiente ( no al ambiente caliente de GUayaquil) lo cual denota que no tienen conocimiento de la temperatura que debe tener el vino. En resumen el lugar es precioso, la comida es muy buena, si preparan más al personal a la hora de servir, creo que la experiencia sería más que buena. Diferenciar el brunch del almuerzo fuimos a la 1:45 y nos ofrecieron el brunch sin opción de pedir platos a la carta, hasta que mejoren esto mi recomendación es ir solo de lunes a viernes donde todo mejora.

    We had one night in Guayaquil and ate dinner at Casa Julian. It was absolutely incredible! From the location, to the service to the food, everything was on point! We had a lovely table out on the patio with an incredible sunset view. The food was some of the best we had in Ecuador!! Highly recommended!

    Casa Julian was absolutely amazing! Hidden gem! The Sangria was fantastic. The chef's tasting menu was brilliantly executed and we loved everything we had. The service was impeccable. The architecture and ambiance were nothing short of perfection. I would absolutely go back if we are ever in Guayaquil again.
