cocktails overlooking bay

Seemed like most guests were staying at the hotel w/ primarily buffet choices. Went for dinner but only did cocktails due to prices and empty of customers. Drinks were ok. Best part is the setting.

The food is tasty (we had shrimp and chicken skewers) and the drinks were made well (we had mojitos). It's a little on the pricey side. Skewers - $11.99, Mojitos - $8.99 & .5L bottles of water were $3.25 each -- BUT it is very difficult to beat the company that you have at lunch -- which were a ton... More

They never came to us to offer us a menu, when they did they only offer a few options and even when we ordered our meal it was not delivered. really disappointed for such a nice place not to have a...

I went to Red Mangrove restaurant to have my first dinner of the year on January 1st. Good thing that I made reservations in the morning because not even like this I had a table reserved. I arrived and announced my arrival to the manager who knew I was coming, then sat on an empty table with no set up... More

I ordered the veggie sushi which is $14. It included 4 pieces which at first glance my boyfriend and i thought only had rice in it. upon further inspection there was the worlds thinnest slice of cucumber in each piece. we ended up sending the food back and leaving. The other food might be good, but I strongly advise against... More

What an amazing place this is! Where else can you sit on a deck with a fantastic bay view surrounded by pelicans swooping in the water, marine iguanas sprawled on the deck, sea lions lounging on the deck chairs and wonderful food and drinks served tastefully by smiling waitpersons on a beautiful Galapagos afternoon!

Liked: The food was great, the beers served in ice-cold chunky beer glasses. The view from the deck straight onto the sea. We LOVED the sea-lion mom and her baby lying in the deckchair next to us!!! No one disturbed them which was wonderful. All the marine iguanas sunning themselves on the deck. Disliked: the price of the beer.

Went here on sat night and it was very quiet - just one other table who were clearly staying there (we watched their trip video which looked pretty awesome; their guide put some work into it). They offered us 2:1 for the buffet which was not something I expected as a sushi bar on a Saturday night. I have a... More

We stayed at the Aventura Lodge and liked the food so well we didn't go anywhere else. We couldn't beat the locals (sea lions, birds, marine iguanas) lounging on the deck outside the windows. The fruit juices were a real treat. We probably gained several pounds just downing those at every meal.

Food was fine, but it took quite a while to get our cocktails. The view was worthy all that waiting!
