We popped in to have a couple of Liquados (smoothies - about Q18) and also had a plate of nachos to share (Q38). The plate was a bit small for the price but non the less was very tasty. Overall, the atmosphere was very pleasant and the owner was super-friendly. Worth a visit

We stopped in here on a whim for a late dinner (arriving around 8:30pm) and found the prices to be very reasonable, especially for a tourist area like Flores. We were even more thrilled with the owner, who is very personable and speaks very good English. We were surprised yet again when the food came and it surpassed all expectations:... More

Lots of choices here in Flores but we really enjoyed our visit to El Tucan. We had a vegetable plate covered with large shrimps and a chicken Kebab. Both were prepared and presented very well. All the ingredients were fresh and tasty. Service was very attentive. Good value too!

Our experience at El Tucan was very good all around. Service was attentive. The owner stopped by to see if we were content with out food, and we were. The shrimp was excellent as was the kebab with chicken. Prices are very good too!

I was not looking for something special, but entering el tucan brought me to a special place! From the outside you just see a simple building, but as soon as you enter you see the relaxed and good atmosphere. Food was really good, but the owner makes the difference! He takes care of you in a personal way, but also... More
