The food is good, it just takes a bit of time for the order to be ready when they are with a lot of people, which is understandable )

We ate here several times because it's one of few places to open early for breakfast. Well, they open at 8 am. Not early for us, but the earliest we found for awhile. The coffee, juices, & ice cream are delicious! The breakfast selection is better than most other places in the Galapagos. The only downside is a penchant for playing Nickleback (seriously, I shazam'ed it to be sure) & other bad hard rock. Not what I want to hear first thing in the morning. However, with good coffee & wifi, we kept going back.

We found Il Giardino to be an excellent spot to stop in for a drink after a rather warm tour of the Charles Darwin Center. It has a very attractive interior with plenty of shady spaces, and delicious mojitos to boot. It's located just past the fish market where the sea lions are begging for the scraps that they aren't supposed to be offered.

This restaurant has great atmosphere. When you walk in it has this open out door feel with lost of tropical plants and natural wood accessories. The menu offers various choices, but of course seafood is the freshest item to order. I ordered the fried fish. It came with rice and plantains and a side salad. It was good and simple but tasty. The price was average. I recommend being seated on the second floor, because it offers a view of the ocean, which is excellent.

We went here for breakfast nearly every day we were in Puerto Ayora. The coffee is the best we found in the Galápagos, and the American bacon and eggs breakfast was a definite winner. The fruit salad and smoothies were great as well.

We had dinner here one night too, and that was definitely enjoyable. But the breakfasts were the highlight. Oh, and the ice creams are good, too.
