Really nice food, a wonderful Maracuyá Mojito (the best of this island), really nice lemmonades and a pepper something meat that was awesome. Try the sesame cover fish and de shrimp&garlic entry.
Yummy!!!!

Breakfast options here are limited, but still delicious. I ordered the desayuno ranchero option- basically scrambled eggs with a tomato sauce, toast, plantains and queso fresco, coffee, and juice. Great deal for about $6.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel's receptionist in Puerto Ayora, who told us the seafood grill dish was very good. That's the reason we went there, and also the reason why we were disappointed with the food. The dose was quite small and had little seafood variety, and it was not properly cooked.

During my month in Ecuador and the Galapagos, the quinoa I had at Garrapata might be the best meal. It seems odd to review a $6 dish so highly, when the rest of Puerto Ayora is so pricey-- but there it is. Slow but very friendly service, and everyone always left happy. We ate there 3 times!
