Each and every time I visit Puerto Ayora this is the first place I go to eat. I enjoy their chicken and shrimp dish with the coconut sauce at least a couple times during each visit and cannot stress enough how much of a local...More

Binford Av has tons of options. We ate here because of reviews but really this was the worst meal we had on the street. Sol Y Luna is way better. They all have the same menus really so nothing special here.

I have no idea why people raved about this place. The food was decent, not great or excellent as some reviews reported. I got the shrimp in coconut sauce and my husband got the lobster in coconut sauce. They were both okay. I wouldn't recommend...More

I cannot describe in words just how delicious this meal was! Best of all, it's 100% authentic Ecuadorian AND ridiculously inexpensive compared to other eateries. It was recommended by a local and wow, I was so impressed! The staff is very friendly too!

I paid $13 for shrimp with coconut sauce served with rice. Food was bland, very basic, regular size serving, should have been much cheaper for what I got.

Had shrimp in coconut sauce with rice. Pretty basic, not very impressive. Could have used more flavor and vegetables.

While the people were friendly and accommodating, we were pretty disappointed in the amount of a quality of food. We heard from several people to try this place, but can't figure out why.

Description
It's like a street food joint....with a small kitchen and most of the seating outdoors. It's a couple of blocks inland (off the main street where most of the "nicer" restaurants are). The food is excellent, fresh and cheap. ($15 for a pair of lobster tails).
