“Very good local food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Good surroundings and friendly service. Food was fresh, tasty and full of flavour. We had the advocado salad with their special spicy salsa, shrimps in garlic sauce and chicken curry. With tasty potatoes and vege. And it was not more 40$ including drinks!

“Good wine and drinks”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The house wine here is very good and the mixed drinks are as well. The food is yummy but a meal for two will be at least $50, unless you just stick to appetizers. The shrimp in garlic sauce was really delicious. This place gets very crowded around 7:30 to 8:00 so it is best to make a reservation. We tried to eat here one night, couldn't get a table, so made a reservation for the next evening.

“Delicious food and friendly staff”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We went here twice -- the second time was because we figured it was a good restaurant for a quiet but quality send-off on our last night in the Galápagos.

Some of the food is a litlte pricier than some of the other restaurants we visited in the Galápagos (we weren't counting pennies, but nor were we aiming for the high-end stuff, for the most part), but for the quality, it was definitely worth it.

The seafood was especially delicious, and the restaurant has a great feel to it, too. Highly recommended.

“Good food and friendly service”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We had an enjoyable and relaxing lunch here. Staff were friendly, had a sense of humour and interacted well with our kids. Food was towards the top end of our month in the Galapagos. One to checkout when you walk along Charles Darwin Avenue working out where you fancy going for dinner.
