This place was reviewed higher than many other places that we have enjoyed more... but our food here was good to very good. We had shrimp with a passion fruit sauce which was very good. Sesame Tuna was very good as well. Mojitos were good, but a little too sweet. Good beer selection compared to other restaurants.

You would not really expect to walk into a streetside restaurant in Puerto Ayroa and confront gourmet cuisine. We ate here 3 different nights. The place is hopping, and still intimate. Not much on wine selection; good beers. The servers are awesome, overworked, and cordial. Most everything here is grilled, and it's delicious.The menu is varied and reasonably priced. The vegetables and accompaniments are so good, and the server will bring you little chips and salsa or sauce to start. HIGHLY recommend the grilled fish in herb sauce; the chicken brochette; the pasta with veges; the mixed grill. Our server even gave us a free dessert (thanks, Diego!) TWICE. The place is hectic but perfect. Get a reservation or be prepared to sit on the wall and wait for the table, it is worth it.

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.

The food here is good. But we felt a bit uncomfortable because our server had an arrogant demeanor. It's not that he was obviously unfriendly, but the way he looked at us and talked to us. I get it that guests sometimes are unfriendly and arrogant, and waiters have the feeling they are abused as servants. But that's not us. I've done that job as well to finance my studies. And as long as the guest is behaving nice, you should too. For good service we would have given more than the 10% mandatory tip. Not to this guy though. Funny enough, the person who recommended the restaurant to us, knew right away about whom we were talking - the server with the man-bun. Seems we weren't the only ones with that feeling.
