La Tasca de Carlos

Spanish in Guayaquil

A friendly, family-run tavern serving up delicacies from the old world, with creamy tortillas, arroz negro con calamares (rice with squid ink and calamari), pulpo a la gallega (Galician-style octopus) and rich paella. It's an atmospheric spot, packed with old photos and other memorabilia from Spain, and it bustles with good cheer at lunchtime.
