“Best place to eat in La Serena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

This is a great place to eat. It has great outdoor seating. The food is fresh and deliciouso. We ordered a pizza and a salad for our main and the pancakes for dessert. The pizza was topped with fresh shrimp, basil and delicious cheese. The salad was huge! Enough for 2 to share full of fresh ingredients. The also serve local craft beer. The staff are polite and friendly and helped us as much as they could, even with our poor Spanish. Would recommend to anyone.

“Surprise of La Serena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Ayawasi has a great menu curated with vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian options made from organic & fresh-from-the-garden-you-are-sitting-in options. Inside or outside are both very pleasant options to sit in. We chose outside as it was such a nice night. Our daughter was very excited to run in the garden, and found a 'secret place' beneath the pomegranate tree next to our table.

They bring fresh made whole-grain rolls and a delicious salsa to dip them in to start.

The waitress actually brought a place setting and cutlery for our daughter! It is the little things that really pleased me... You would be surprised how many other restaurants you have to ask several times before they understand you don't want your 3-year old eating with their hands, with no napkin to use :)

My husband had a very cold beer and the shrimp pizza, which he said was delicious! A rare treat as most pizzas we discover on the road (we have been traveling overland for 15months now) are pasty, flavorless abominations.

Colette and I shared the soup of the day, which was a nice tomato soup with oregano, and the special- fresh made juice (we chose mango, which was great) and a veggie burger that was out of this world tasty! The patty was delicious and the burger had smashed avocado, sliced olives, sauteed (fresh not canned) mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, sauteed onion, on a toasted bun. The owner, Daniel, asked if I would like some homemade ketchup- what I got was a beyond belief creation that should not have to share the name with that red-fake crap.

GO! You won't regret it.

“Great food and such nice people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We had wonderful home made bread with salsa, spinach soup, shrimp and arugula pizza, and local wine and beer. All great. But the best part was Daniela and Daniel. The owners were so lovely and fun, we started talking and couldn't stop.
