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

We stopped at this family owned cafe for lunch. It was great for people watching and we are not big pizza eaters but it sounded good. Absolutely the right choice! I had a mushroom pie and my husband had the Angry. Both were delish! Thin crusted with just enough cheese for flavor but not so much that it was greasy.... More

I've been here numerous times, and the service is hit and miss. Sometimes great, other times it leaves quite a bit to be desired. The food is good though, which is why we keep going back.

This was the worst meal i had in the whole trip, the service was very poor they kept me waiting more than an hour for a pizza and the restaurant was not even full. Avoid this place.

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
