We had the set lunch menu here. It was pretty standard. It was cheap. The service was friendly. The portions were small.

This was the worst dining experience of our entire Galapagos trip. I ordered a half lobster for $15 that literally did not contain 2 full bites of meat. We were talking about the experience with a local tour operator, and he told us that it...More

The food was amazing and the staff was really nice and they also speak English. Which is really nice. Their crispy shrimp dish is delicious! If I had more time here I would definitely go back for a second time.

This small place in the middle of the restaurant kiosk/strip, on the main (dirt) street of town, doesn't look like it will be much. Surprise! Despite amusing NEON tablecloths (they seem to change color each day), the meal is excellent. For a VERY small price,...More
