“Great fresh seafood.”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

You will love this place for great fresh seafood and the seviche is great. Beautiful view of the harbor.
Service was a bit slow so don't be in a rush, Just get a beer and relax.

“Not a great option - food not great for not a great price”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 via mobile

Convenient location - we came across this walking along the shore.
I had a cream pasta that I couldn't even eat - the sauce tasted somewhat sour. My husband's garlic shrimp was better but nothing special and the plate was drowned in butter. People at a table nearby had a seafood BBQ which looked a lot better.

“Overpriced, poor service”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

We ate here on recommendation from Lonely Planet Galapagos.

Since their review last year, prices have gone up by 50% (!). The service was glacier slow, waiter was inattentive, and quite honestly the seafood, both fish and shrimp, was overcooked. We waited more than 45 minutes to get our order, but mine came first then my spouse's about 5 minutes later. It seemed to me pretty obvious that, like some restaurants, they were trying to up the beverage order by making guests wait. Coupled with their price increases I'd have to say it's run by a profiteer, not a restauranteer!

Much better options, service, and food available elsewhere close.

“Second restaurant in San cristobal”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

We ate at this place twice , langostino ceviche was really good I would highly recommend it. The food is good but you have tone patient and wait. The service was slow and bad. The other bad thing is that at late afternoon this place have a lot of flies.

“Dinner at La Playa”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

We were just passing through and ate only one meal here, but it was recommended by locals. Very good location and great local seafood. Service was pretty good. Bilingual menu with many selections, both North and South American.
