“Nice atmosphere, stick with the burgers served on lava rock!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Service not great. Burger served on lava rocks great, stay away from the mustard chicken (tough, not good flavor). The creaking pump on the street can get a bit annoying to listen to...

“Nice friendly place”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Great food, nothing extraordinary though, somewhat slow service, but I guess that is typical of the entire island, maybe. Very friendly staff and owner, despite the language barrier they did their best to understand our needs. Kid friendly. nice decor, display, fuseball table.

“Great food and great people!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is a great place to have dinner in Puerto Ayora. The menu is varied. I had the surf and turf hamburger and my husband had an Asian salad. My brother-in-law had the tuna with sesame seeds and soy sauce. They were all delicious! The hamburger was huge and was really nicely prepared (on a hot lava stone). The tuna was beautifully cooked (not overcooked!) and the salad was really nice. They made us crepes for desert, very yummy. The service was not super fast but good and very friendly.

“Excellent pub grub”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We ate here last night and the food was excellent. My wife had the veggie burger - a real treat in the Galapagos - and carrot soup to start, which was enhanced by the thin fries on top of it - nice touch. I had some sort of cheesy potato fried bally things to start which were good and filling, followed by Tuna steak cooked on the hot lava rock.

A few things seem like gimmicks, the lava rock, one of the only pool tables on the island, the half inside half outside place, but its part of the vibe of the place, and it doesn't detratct from the food, which was excellent. The first place I've found on the island that doesn't sell the Reservado Chilean wine, but its replacement was very good too...

“Great food and good atmosphere”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great choice of seafood , sometimes prepared in an unusual way but always tasting delicious. Lady owner certainly knows how to treat guests. Definitely a place for at least one nice dinner. We had three.
