I went here several times (lunch and dinner) during my two weeks on Galapagos. Service was always excellent. The food was great. I never did get a chance to try the pizza (I REALLY wanted to) but the ceviche was amazing as was any of the pasta dishes! Highly recommended!

Were here on our last day for breakfast. Your choice of eggs with bacon, toasted bread, mango juice and coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Best breakfast we had on Galapagos. And decent WiFi

The restaurant is very close to where the water taxi's and boats arrive and so very popular. However, we were there late-afternoon when hardly anyone was there. The server was rude, spoke minimal english and avoided our table to joke around with others at the bar. The pizza was sparsely covered and cold when it arrived. Worst of all, the... More

Can't miss this place near Puerto Ayora ' s malecon. Covered outdoor seating is inviting. The pizza was fairly good and went down well w cold beer. Also semi-attaced to restaurant is a little icecream stand

I got the margherita pizza which was quite filling and 2 margaritas for less than $20. Not a bad deal for Puerto Ayora which is not cheap. The pizza was good with a nice crust and fresh basil, also lots of fresh tomatoes.

I found this café on my first day here. Since my hotel does not offer breakfast I went out searching for morning coffee. It's a great spot, right on the corner of the waterfront where all the morning action takes place. There is a young woman barista who brings my coffee every morning and although neither of us is good... More

OK so I did not take pictures of the food but the food was great at this place. If you are traveling around and miss your American type bacon, egg and pancakes this is your stop! It's located right off the docks.

Pretty standard galapagos fare. The menus are a bit pricey for the quality that you get due to the fact that everything is imported and selection is few. But its a decent place to fill up and recharge the batteries.
