“menu of the day!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The menu of the day (for only $5!) was nothing short of amazing. I had fried fish and my husband had curry shrimp - both delicious, authentic, and served with rice, frieds, and salad. We were weary at first because of how affordable it was but do not be fooled - it was delicious!

“Tiny portions, bad service”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We ordered the set menu for dinner. While the quality of the food was ok, the portion was as small as an appetizer and we had to eat somewhere else afterwards. It was very difficult to get the attention of the waitress. When we eventually got our "cold" drinks, they were warm.

“Cheap but bad”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Food is as cheap as in all the places on the plaza, 5 USD for the menue, but it was not well cooked, not well heated (cold rice), small portions compared with others.
We stayed 7 nights on Isabela and tried quite a few restaurants, Pepa is clearly our last choice

“Good Spag.”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

As vegetarian sometime it is a challenge to find a restaurant even one vegetarian plate on a menu. Our first night on Isabela had us stop at El Encanto De La Pepa and it was good.
Well first I have to say that at least 2 restaurants were completely reserved by groups (hope that those beautiful islands will not get just for group travelers like Egypt)
The vegetable spaghetti was generous with a great taste to it. That was the only option but a good one. We may go back.
