Had lunch and was not disappointed. Special mention for the spaghetti aglio e olio with seafood which was memorable. Service was prompt.
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.
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.
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... More
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!
Had some fantastic food here. Wonderful tuna steaks, very thick and cooked to our preference. Tasted superb. Good atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Thoroughly recommend.
