While the people were friendly and accommodating, we were pretty disappointed in the amount of a quality of food. We heard from several people to try this place, but can't figure out why.

The best place to taste the famous and local encocado of labster or camaron. They serve it with Rice and frijoles. They also serve it really fast. Great food at a fair price!

We ate the coconut flavored langostino at the recommendation of some locals. It was delicious and reasonably priced

We enjoyed our shrimp and fish in coconut sauce, and the owner even brought over an extra bowl of coconut sauce without asking which was great. We did think it was a little pricey though at 11 and 13 dollars respectively, and those were some of the cheapest menu options.

A great spot to people watch and eat great food. We all enjoyed the shrimp and rice in coconut sauce. It's one of the many places found in the kiosk area. I had heard about it and was disappointed to find it closed our first two nights in town. Happy it opened before we left!

Located in the open-air restaurant kiosk area. We loved the seafood in Coconut Sauce, served with rice, salad and plaintains. Busy atmosphere with of locals and adventurous tourists.

We visit this particular restaurant every time we are in the Galapagos. The food is amazing and the setting is genuine. The chicken with coconut sauce is a favorite! They are open from around 6-9:30. Enjoy and thank me later!

KF William is by far the most well known restaurant on the kiosk street, but sadly it is riding on this repuation somewhat. We tried the fish in coconut sauce with beans which was tasty.. however I had about five beans on my plate and there just wasn't enough coconut sauce. All in all a good meal but a bit... More

This is the place for typical seafood from the coast of Ecuador. William is from Esmeralda and thats the food he knows how to cook. The Tasca is located in the food street where in the evening about 10 restaurants fill the street with tables. Try William and enjoy Lobster or fish in Coconut.

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).
