“Promises a lot but expensive and disappointing”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The atmosphere in this restaurant is great with roaring fires and charcoal grills in an immense building which gives a sense of history. When the menus arrived they were encased in an iron frame which was an unusual (and heavy) touch.

On offer is a traditional range of grilled meats, typically cuts of 400g, soups, sancochos and other local dishes. Prices are on the high side, especially for beer, but the quality was just about ok, with some meat over-seasoned and some lacking in flavour. The pepper steak was rolled in gargantuan quantities of crushed pepper, creating a dish that was both too hot to comfortably eat yet strangely tasteless.

The quality of the surroundings and the prices had given us hopes for a meal to remember but it was not to be.

“Quality of food not goof”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Service was very slow and the meat was not tender like other restaurants in Chia. If you want a great steak Galapagos is where you want to go

“AWESOME!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

What a great traditional restaurant. It's in a large barn type building with amazing food, drink and music. Definitely a great place to eat and visit. There's a kids playhouse behind the restaurant that probably is great for the kids too.
