This place has crushed lava Rick as the floor & we had a wonderful waiter. Had a great sense of humor! Food was very good. Pricing from $12-$20. The brochettes (skewers of meat with vegetable) were outstanding!!

Came here for dinner one night of our stay in Puerto Ayora and were pretty pleased with our meal. I ordered shrimp in garlic sauce and thought that it had a nice flavor, although the shrimp was cooked just a few minutes too long. My husband ordered an Ecuadorian fish dish and enjoyed it. Nice beer selection.

We first went to visit to drink some local beers and then decided to stay for dinners. A pleasant surprise- situated on the main streets just alongside the pavement with outdoor seating, the food and service was very good.

The chicken curry was fantastic as was all our food. This place fills up with large parties and gets quit noisy. Consequently the service is slow, on the verge of being ignored.
