This is a covered outdoor dining area. The table are on crushed lava rock. They were helpful with our gluten free and dairy free needs. We shared plantains and tortillas with gucamole and salsa. The drinks were great too.

The cows in Galápagos are free ranged, vaccine free (no contact with the continent), making it tasty and healthy. This restaurant knows how to cook it perfectly. The place is fun and relaxing, my kid liked the Pinchos a lot.

We ate here multiple times while on the island. The pastas, chicken and nachos were our favorites but THE CHOCOLATE CAKE was devoured in seconds. Great service every time. They take Visa.
