Wanted t9 grab something quick here but it's essentially a tourist trap. Avoid most of the places directly near where you need to catch the panga's

This is a nice place to sit out in the open, have drinks, some food, and wave at passers-by. Our pina coladas were tasty as was the ceviche. They have a variety of food and our group had cammerones main courses as well as pizza. Service was efficient and pleasant. Prices reasonable but not super cheap.

We were pleased by the size of the servings and the prices. One difficulty encountered was having our credit card deemed invalid for no discernible reason. Great location adjacent to the piers.

This is a busy bar on Santa Cruz and heavily used by tourists going there for the free wi-fi. They do a nice line in ice creams too. The food there is more snacky than main meal (to me). A nice touch is that they bring you complimentary mini snacks if you look like that you're there for more than... More

Lunch here one day and was ok. We only had a pizza and a sandwich. Not too expensive and the food was decent. Would have liked to try some other dishes.

Location is great but food is expensive and less. We shared a pizza which was meaned for two persons, but very small. Drinks are expensive. Better option is the open air food street at charles binford street.

I had the best Pizza Margarita in my whole life here at Cafe Hernan! Can't stop thinking about it :) Forced my boyfriend to go there twice so I could eat it again :) He had a burger and a cold Shrimp-Soup. They were really good, too! And we celebrated the mojitos! Delicious!!! J. from Germany
