“Exquisite and great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

I've been to Garrapata Restaurant many times, and never got disappointed. The atmosphere is great, good and tasty food, and outstanding service, they speak English, German and Russian. They also have a very good selection of wines. Desserts are also out of this world, especially the chocolate and carrot cake. Great place to take friends on more casual occasions. Reservation is recommended for dinner.

“Good Food, Beautiful Patio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

I ate here several times while on Santa Cruz; the service was friendly, the food was good, and the setting pleasant. I love the leisurely pace of dining in Galapagos; it's reminiscent of a good day in France.

“Good Grilled Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

My wife and I ate here the first night. Grilled seafood is very popular at the local restaurants. We enjoyed our dinner here, but ultimately preferred Isla Grill and Red Mangrove.

“One of my favorite meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

One of my favorite meals in the Galapagos was at La Garrpata, I had the sesame encrusted tuna with fresh avocado and it was delicous! The restaurant itself is a fun place, the floor is gravel and the waitstaff is friendly!

“Nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

We visited this restaurant twice, once for a set lunch which was entirely edible, if fairly simple, and once for dinner. The latter was more pleasant and we enjoyed the steak, prawns with coconut and passionfruit and in particular the tuna in teriyaki sauce - a real hit with our daughter.
