“Our favourite spot in Puerto Ayora”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We came here many times during our three stays in Puerto Ayora as the place ticks all the boxes. Great and I mean great food - cheap and delicious cocktails, free pool, quirky and fun recyled art everywhere with an inviting atmosphere but most of all the friendly woman that runs it. There is something special about being greeted so warmly and welcomed and remembered each time we came. We loved this place.

“Best Caprihinas in Puerto Ayora”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Really nice atmosphere for some afternoon drinks. Great 2 for 1 cocktails. The lady who owns it is really lovely as well. You can use the pool table as well.

“Taste and creativity all in one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Café Buganbilia is not just a 'Cafe/Restaurant', its an open air art galery, where you sit on and surrounded by art, all made out of recycled stuff. We were impressed with all the beautiful things that can be built out of things that we normally throw away.
The menu is as original as the place. Lots of different options, we tried a few of them out and all were excellent!
If you are in Santa Cruz you have to go there. Pass by and enjoy a fresh juice or smoothie or chill out with a nice cocktail in the evening surrounded by all this cool creations, its definitely worth it! You can buy some stuff there as well or get some ideas to recycle at home a bit more :)
