“Pricey but nice”
Review of El Velero

El Velero
Price range: US$5 - US$30

Reviewed 6 August 2016

Excellent pizzas but their Velero seafood rice is a must for rice lovers. we visited the place twice ( family of 5) and we all enjoyed the food here. Pity we didnt have more time to sample more of the islands varied seafood. The fried seafood platter was missing the octopus,calamares and lobster (we were warned in advanced) so i was a bit boring and dissaponting but i reckon they are good at preparing the good array of seafood they offer.

Awesome food, try the Shrimp Cazuela (local speciality made of peanut) and the Grilled Albacora! Ask for Carlos, the best waiter in town.

We had a lunch and a dinner here and were very happy with our choice on both occasions. Service would not be up to New York standards but, Hey! - this is a paradise island and not New York! We got our wine early for dinner and enjoyed watching the play at various tables!
Look, we go to restaurants for food and here, these guys score heavily. We shared a lobster ceviche for starter and for mains had a China lobster (also called giant prawn, slipper lobster or islands lobster) and a mixed shellfish salad. All of these dishes were of the highest standard, although not cheap. Overall? - Excellent!

We had a few meals here. Service is occasionally a bit haphazard but that should not put you off. Drinks are expensive here - they are everywhere on Isabela. This is good for a lunch or a dinner.

After many days of rice and fish or chicken, our group was ready for a change. The pizza was very good. We had a cheese with fresh tomatoes, a pepperoni with mushrooms and olives, and a meat lovers with a variety. All delivered to the table hot and fresh. A nice change from the typical island fare. Location is along the main square with all the other restaurants. Recommend.
