Went to have sushi for lunch after I had picked up copies of the menu to show to our tour group. When we arrived we were told that they didn't prepare any sushi dishes for lunch. Our meals were very expensive and poor quality.

Service is terrible, food quality is low and its highly overpriced. Avoid this place, Puerto Ayora has very good food and restaurant offering.

The restaurant has one of the best views in all of Puerto Ayora. If you are okay having an occasional sea lion near your table, I'd recommend sitting outside on the patio. All of the dishes we tried were tasty and the staff was friendly.

The food was spectacular! Local dishes were excellent! Enjoyed the coffee at breakfast and the different juices. The yogurt and pineapple were heavenly along with many of the fish dishes that were served.
