Came here for lunch right before a big tour group came in. Food was very good (we got a seafood dish) and drinks/cocktails were good too. Popular among tour groups. Wifi is available and service was good. Love the outdoor seating.

I had 3 meals here while in Puerto Ayora and couldn't recommend it more! The seafood pasta was outstanding and twice I had the avocado salad with grilled shrimp which were absolutely delicious.

Excellent evening meal. Grilled fish was perfect with veggies, shrimp in coconut sauce was fab! I want to go back tomorrow, but they are closed.
