I had dinner there, bad expierience. First, they completly ignored me for quite a while. Then it took them over an hour to get a small sushi dish ready, although they where working on it with two chefs and there were just very few tables to serve. Food was ok though, just nothing special.

Looks fantastic, right on the seafront, sea lions and iguanas at your feet and a lovely room and terrace. Had a very expensive lunch buffet here, it was at best, average for the money. Could be so much better with a little more effort.

Rude staff was the primary reason. We had made our first reservations for a Saturday night but when we arrived we were told there was no sushi. They told us Monday for sushi so we made reservations for 7:30pm with our hotel information. When we arrived on Monday, they informed us that there was no sushi that night either. The... More

By all means stop in this place for a drink (2 for one happy hour 4 - 6:30pm), if only to see the sea lions napping all over the chaise lounges and the deck crawling with marine iguanas. We loved it so much we decided to stay for dinner. Big mistake. This was by far the worst service we had... More

Was not impressed by the divers lodge, however, all meals were included and I was happy I knew I could find a decent meal here everyday!! Diane and Renan were awesome and I am happy they were there to take care of everything. they were my saving grace when I thought it couldn't get worse!

The view over the harbor is worth the trip here even if it is only for happy hour. But go somewhere else for dinner. The service is good, the wait staff is friendly. But the food is very disappointing!

Sushi was absolutely terrible, especially given the prices. The rice was so crumbly it was difficult to hold it together in a roll. We shared four different rolls between two people, but the flavors were indistinguishable. They advertise being a sushi bar, so it's really unacceptable that they screwed up the sushi to this degree... The one redeeming factor is... More

I enjoyed this restaurant, mainly because it has an outdoor seating area overlooking the harbor. Also, it is a pretty cool entrance off the street and lodge. It is a step nicer than most retaurants in PA. It was a romatic spot. They preferred we made a reservation adn hte hostess had to get the cook's permission to seat us... More

This place is awesome, it is in the Happening Area of Santa Cruz (just a few steps from Darwin Station). Delicious and gourmet experience, a nice and scenic view, excellent attention and high quality food. It has high quality and standards, respecting the ecological and sustainable experience you have in the Galapagos. Definitely a must in the Islands. Sushi is... More
