Had a nice small lunch of tuna and cerveza. Well prepared and well served. Nice atmosphere on the main drag half way between the port and the research center. Recommended!

We stopped just for beers and an appetizer. Had chips with cheese, beans and guacamole. It was VERY good! We'd been missing the vegetarian Mexican food we eat at home a lot, so not sure everyone would be as thrilled?!

We visited this restaurant in June on the advice of other travellers & had an excellent evening. The food is simple, mainly fish & meat charcoal grilled, but excellently prepared & good value. Great atmosphere & a great location to watch the world go by. Definitely worth visiting.

We had a great evening here, starting with cocktails and appetizers. Tortilla chips with guacamole and cheese are a must. We had an Ecuadorian style steamed fish and sesames tuna, both excellent. The service is exceptional. Will be back!

Had lunch and was not disappointed. Special mention for the spaghetti aglio e olio with seafood which was memorable. Service was prompt.
