“Good but overpriced”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Full menu of yummy seafood and other dishes, and a nice quiet location away from the main malecón. Slow service, and expensive, but food is consistently good.

“Fried Large Galapagos Prawn & Tuna”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We had a very enjoyable meal in this open air restaurant at the far end of the town. This is our third meal on San Cristobal Island and the format was the same on each: fish or seafood with either rice or french fries and a salad. With two Ecuadoran beers, the total came to 31 US Dollars (the same for all three meals). The Galapagos Prawn is a large lobster-like crustacean without claws. While it is not nearly as succulent as a Maine Lobster, it is much better than the Caribbean lobsters we have had in the past. The service in this restaurant was the best of the three restaurants we had tried and was provided by one man who was very busy and the restaurant was full with over 30 diners. Highly recommended.

“Excellent fish”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

We ended up going there 3 times - definitely recommend the fish (fried, grilled, with coconut sauce), it was excellent for about 10 dollars. Service was nice and efficient, and the terrace is nice. One of the best price / quality compromises in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno.

“Good food. Friendly service.”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Food is good and there are numerous choices. They take credit cards but it's a chore for them and you. Very patient, but if you can pay with cash... Do it.

God choice for food in San Cristobal.
