Great restaurant!

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.

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!

Terrible service and average food. The staff was unfriendly, not helpful at all and gave us a hard time. The food was overpriced for the average quality. The place is either too big or there wasn't enough staff, but they absolutely need to change something.

We ate here several times during our stay on Santa Cruz. They had some good food, great service, and nice ambiance. We were happy to see that they were open during the New Year holiday.

We enjoyed several meals here while visiting Galapagos. We particularly enjoyed the salads... lots of fresh lettuce and vegetables.
