“Best food on island”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

We ate dinner here on our last night on the island. The tortilla app was great, the Locro de Papa was good but the Chicken Curry was awesome. Very tasty. Best meal on any of the islands we ate at. Good service and clean place.

“Good place for dinner”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 via mobile

My husband ordered the Seafood grill and he thought it was very fresh fish and the accompanying vegetables were well grilled. Worth the $20. I enjoyed the shrimp with coconut sauce. I just wishes they were the bigger shrimp and more sauce. Staff is super friendly would give them a 5 star rating.

“Really tasty!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We ate everywhere we could on Santa Cruz when we visited in September 2013, and I think La Garrapata was the best restaurant for dinner. For fairly cheap, we got two appetizers and two entrees, along with juice, and it was the perfect amount of food to fill us up. We really enjoyed the chance with our server to practice our Spanish. he had a great sense of humor and helped us with our pronunciation and vocabulary. when you go, be sure to try the Locros de Papas and the jugo de melon. You will not be disappointed.
