On the recommendation of our tour guide, we tried out The Rock, which turned out to have very good food. We both had tuna with a small salad, which was quite enjoyable. Considering it wasn’t overly busy, it did seem to take a bit of...More

This restaurant is extremely well run and serves high quality food with a touch of class. The food tastes incredible and the presentation is excellent. I highly recommend a visit.

Went with a group of 15 people and the staff was very accommodating! The 2 for $10 drink special was perfect and the food was delicious! It was beautifully prepared and tasted just as great. Atmosphere is very welcoming!

The food is good, as are the drinks. The location is right on the main drag, within walking distance to many of the main hotels. Service is also very good--much faster than the majority of the restaurants.

Had dinner here and it was so relaxing. They play great music and the staff are friendly and take a great deal of care making the drinks. We both had pasta and were not disappointed. The portions were large and came with bread.

This is a nice clean and modern bar/restaurant. We did not eat but stopped for beers on the way back to our hotel. Cool decor and nice modern beach feel bar and restaurant.

No fish chowder, two blocks from the fish market? Surprise, but we didn't come to the Galapagos for pasta (which we were forced to have and was way over-salted). No 2:1 drinks during happy hour, despite the "2:1 drinks" sign and it was already past...More
