I had eaten a few dinners in the kiosks area and this was by far the best. But if you are looking for a $10 dinner, you won't find it here. I had the lobster in coconut sauce with rice and loved the taste, texture,...More

This kiosk spot came highly recommended. Everything is in a coconut curry sauce, which is mild and delicious, no overpowering curry or coconut taste. It comes with rice and beans. Add beer and you enjoy a delicious dinner for 2 - $30.

This restaurant in the Kiosks area is typical of them all. Fresh fish with rice, potatoes and salad, plus cocktails and beers.

We had read and heard how fantastic this spot was and were both really disappointed with the coconut shrimp we had here. They were dry and hardly any coconut sauce with them. Highly over-rated.

We happened to be in the Galápagos Islands in December, which is apparently the one month of the year when they are allowed to fish for lobsters. At other times of the year, only slipper lobster is available. We both had the lobster in coconut...More

Binford Av has tons of options. We ate here because of reviews but really this was the worst meal we had on the street. Sol Y Luna is way better. They all have the same menus really so nothing special here.

I have no idea why people raved about this place. The food was decent, not great or excellent as some reviews reported. I got the shrimp in coconut sauce and my husband got the lobster in coconut sauce. They were both okay. I wouldn't recommend...More

It's like a street food joint....with a small kitchen and most of the seating outdoors. It's a couple of blocks inland (off the main street where most of the "nicer" restaurants are). The food is excellent, fresh and cheap. ($15 for a pair of lobster tails).
