Hoping to have some delicious grilled shrimp for dinner, I was quite disappointed that this place was out of shrimp. I ended up with mixed seafood, but it was mostly fish (of some undetermined species) and a few calamari. The sauce was a bit too salty for my taste. Better to try the Kioskos, which are less expensive, much more fun, and mostly delicious!

I loved this restaurant. It was very busy every night we were in Puerto Ayora but we were lucky enough to easily get a table one night. The staff was very quick and friendly and I really enjoyed my tuna in pepper sauce. Would strongly recommend.

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.
