Good pizza, Gringo prices

As a gringa who has been living in Ecuador for the past year, the prices in the Galapagos were very shocking. However, if you're just visiting the islands, the prices will seem normal. The pizza was delicious and they also have soft-serve ice cream that was phenomenal (probably the best ice cream... read more

There was no redeeming feature for this restaurant. The prices were sky high, the meals were terrible, the service was so slow that half of our table had time to duck out and barter a diving trip and still get back long before the food turned up! This restaurant exploits tourists arriving in Puerto Ayora.

Good range of breakfasts, hot chocolate was very good, Bloody Mary's were yum. Good for people watching, wifi worked well and staff were attentive and helpful. I wanted to order a sandwich with extras and the waitress advised me it would be cheaper to order a different sandwich without some ingredients instead - and still end up with exactly what... More

We went there for a dinner, which was ok. Better food than in some of the other places in Puerto Ayora. However later we took some 1 $ Ice creams and I have to pay with 20 $ bill. Young waitress tried to make basic scam, giving back many bills and dropping the biggest one out, Luckily I counted what... More

Ate at this place on Sunday. Food poisoning 4-5 hours later. Ordered fish with garlic sauce and beer. I recommend you take a pass on this place. Go to Angermeyer for dinner.

I was disappointed the coffee served was not from Galapagos, just 10minute drive north you can find unique and top quality Galapagos coffee that I was hoping to drink in Cafe Hernan. The service and location are great.

We stopped by at least two or three times during the week we stayed at Hotel Solymar. The food was good as was the service. It is an open-air café and we enjoyed dining while watching the people, buses and trucks go by. Although all that activity sounds like a big city venue, it takes place in the quaint heart... More

We ate there once for lunch and once for dinner (and often for $1 ice cream cones when passing by). For lunch, we had an Angry pizza (bacon, basil and chiles), a glass of wine and a beer. For dinner, we had pizza and shrimp a la crema, wine and beer. Both times we had good food and good service... More
