This was where we ate our first night in town. It is a nice, informal place to eat with a bar. You sit under a roof but the breeze travels in keeping you cool at dusk/night time. The cafe is across from the inlet and you can watch sea gulls flying around and boats coming in and out of port.... More

In addition to the normal Galapagos menu of Ceviche, Fish and Chicken, this restaurant had some additional choices such as fried shrimp and pizza.

The food is ok, but the service is awful. They would not swap out one ingredient in a pizza, then it turned up cold. Also, they were very very slow to help with anything.

This was my go to spot recommended to me by the hotel. It had a good variety of food and drinks. If I wanted something light or something more substantial they had it. They had an excellent frozen lemonade, my favorite drink in hot weather.

Good attention, good food. The pizza was specially good, the thin crust gives it a very Italian style. The seafood was very good too.

We went here for breakfast. They have a very standard, American-style breakfast. Breakfasts are very similar in Puerto Ayora Fruit in Galapagos is very good and this was no exception They are very close to day trips etc. We started here for a day trip to Garrapatero Beach

We ate and drank here a lot, the food was great and the service was quick and attentive. The pancakes for breakfast or lunch are fantastic. Popular meeting spot for tourists

Stopped twice here for dinner and an ice cream. Pretty good but then we discovered the street food a few blocks away. Food wasn't that brilliant. Wifi was pretty amazing at Hernans. Good fan in the heat
