“Great taste of civilization”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The Galapagos is all about nature and I love that but Tintorera was a welcome respite. Great drinks, service, wifi, and the atmosphere is completely adorable. Indoor/outdoor in perfect combination and right in the middle of town.

“Gone down hill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This use to be my husband's favorite restaurant in Puerto Ayora. He loved the fresh fish cooked on the lava rock. This last time, however we were both very disappointed with our dishes. The portions were half the size they were in January 2012 and the prices had gone increased by almost 50%.

Estimado Browncoat66,

Gracias por su comentario. Es realmente una pena que se haya llevado una descepción en cuestión del tema de relación: cantidad - precio.

Le comento que ahora existe una nueva administración. La misma ha implementado varios cambios positivos en cuestión de servicio, calidad y ambientación de la misma manera en que lo hacen los buenos restaurantes de varias partes del mundo.

Usted puede encontrar mas cantidad de comida por menor precio en muchos lugares dentro de las islas. La diferencia está en la preparación de nuestros platos, su tratamiento y el trato para una experiencia global. Nosotros trabajamos mas en la calidad y el momento y no tanto en la cantidad ya que eso elevaría mucho el precio de cada plato y preferimos hacerlo accesible al turista medio.

El 80% de quienes nos visitan están muy contentos con nuestro servicio, nuestro trato y con nuestras recetas.

Agradecemos de manera muy especial su comentario ya que para muchas personas es muy útil saber y comprobar su crítica.

Una vez mas lo siento por su descepción. Si nos visita la próxima vez, le podremos explicar de manera mas detallada el porque de su sorpresa en terminos económicos.

Atentamente,

Hans Rivadeneira R.

“Incredible atmosphere sweet music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

My wife and I were greeted by the owners at the door welcoming us in like family, after a 30 minute conversation with them personally, really made us feel welcome to be here!

The music and atmosphere in this place reminds me of home in downtown Dallas Tx

The drinks are excellent price and just can't get enough of this place!!!

Can't wait to come back next year to visit these awesome people!!!'
