I only had breakfast there but drinking espresso coffee was a treat and breakfast fresh and good. Wifi also worked which was quite convenient as it's generally not the island's strong point!

The cafe is in a great location, lovely for people watching. Do yourself a favor and get the plantains with cheese - you'll thank me later. The Caipiriñas are great and the food is too.

We wanted to order a vegetarian and add pineapple and ham. Usually the added cost would be roughly 2-4 bucks but here it would of worked out to be 16 dollars. Absolute joke of pricing and the staff where rude when asked how this pricing system works. If you wanted to add shrimp it would cost more than the pizza... More

Stopped here immediately on arriving in the islands before we even found our hotel. It was Lunchtime but true pace was empty - often a danger sign. However, when hungry.... we ordered a family size pizza which arrived quickly Enough and was pretty good. Price was a shock, but that's Galapagos everywhere. We'd go back. Service wasn't super friendly, but... More

We wanted to go to Galapagos Deli for dinner but they were closed so we here instead- big mistake. We ordered a large pepperoni pizza(11$). When it came it was a different pizza with pepperoni added- the new cost 36$! We don't like to send back food or cause a stir but this was clearly an issue of overcharging the... More

Food is very good, we enjoyed the meat and the burgers. Fries were tasty and prices are honest as well.

I went here several times (lunch and dinner) during my two weeks on Galapagos. Service was always excellent. The food was great. I never did get a chance to try the pizza (I REALLY wanted to) but the ceviche was amazing as was any of the pasta dishes! Highly recommended!

Were here on our last day for breakfast. Your choice of eggs with bacon, toasted bread, mango juice and coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Best breakfast we had on Galapagos. And decent WiFi

The restaurant is very close to where the water taxi's and boats arrive and so very popular. However, we were there late-afternoon when hardly anyone was there. The server was rude, spoke minimal english and avoided our table to joke around with others at the bar. The pizza was sparsely covered and cold when it arrived. Worst of all, the... More
