Good and practical

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... read more

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

With an excellent location along the busy intersection right by the harbor, the Cafe Herman is a great place for people watching … cruise ship patrons coming and going, locals catching the white pickup truck taxis, kids coming by for an ice cream or a shaved ice from the local vendor who often sets up across the street. My tuna... More

We really liked this restaurant and it's perfectly located near the pier. They have a large selection although some items are expensive. I would recommend the ceviche and the pizza. Good WIFI and service too.

Throughout the years I have been in the galapagos islands more than a dozen time. Through all the trips I have eaten at Hernan more than a few times but this time it was my last. Every time the place keeps getting better St looks and everything related but the food simply doesn't cut it... The pizza is good or... More

Every single item ordered on the menu for the whole 5 days we went were absolutely delicious! The prices were good, the service great, the food yummy. Breakfast was our favorite! Pancakes, eggs, lots of bread, juice, fruit! All really good!
