We only came here for ice cream and I was delighted how delicious and creamy it was! They have standard flavors but the creaminess and quality was really yummy. You don't have to sit down to eat ice cream, you can just take away.

The Giardino was the best restaurant we went in Puerto Ayora. The food is very good, with nice presentation, good flavors and recipes. But the service is amazingly quick. Not even in Quito we were served so well and quickly. You need to let a space for the best helado (ice cream) we had in Ecuador. We returned there twice even though we like to try different places!

We ate here as part of the final night of our diving package. They provided a set menu with 3 choices of starter, main and dessert. The service was very good and the food excellent. The atmosphere was lively but not too noisy. The bar downstairs sells cocktails too with views over the bustling Avenue Charles Darwin.

The atmosphere is wonderful and the food fresh and native. The server did his best with limited english and our spanglish - somehow he understood everything we wanted and needed.

Very nice place. The atmosphere is great, food is really good and very varied. They have all kinds of food, ranging from fish and sea food to more international dishes. The service was really good, the waiters were very friendly and spoke some English which was easy for some of our group.
