Stopped twice here for dinner and an ice cream. Pretty good but then we discovered the street food a few blocks away. Food wasn't that brilliant. Wifi was pretty amazing at Hernans. Good fan in the heat

There was a big menu with a lot of choice including a large selection of pizzas and even a ‘create your own’ pizza section – so my husband had a margherita and I created a prawn and tuna pizza which was delicious and really hit the spot. It was a lot cheaper than eating in our hotel restaurant as well!

If you get tired of mundane repetitive hotel fare like I did, stop here for a good burger, club sandwich, fries and pizza. Good people watching too and big TVs for watching soccer, etc. I always come her when I am in Puerto Ayora.

The service is very slow and I had better food at other restaurants in the area. Make sure you ask for drink prices before ordering. I ordered 2 rum and cokes thinking they were on happy hour, but was charged $17 for 2 drinks.

I only had breakfast there but drinking espresso coffee was a treat and breakfast fresh and good. Wifi also worked which was quite convenient as it's generally not the island's strong point!

The cafe is in a great location, lovely for people watching. Do yourself a favor and get the plantains with cheese - you'll thank me later. The Caipiriñas are great and the food is too.

We wanted to order a vegetarian and add pineapple and ham. Usually the added cost would be roughly 2-4 bucks but here it would of worked out to be 16 dollars. Absolute joke of pricing and the staff where rude when asked how this pricing system works. If you wanted to add shrimp it would cost more than the pizza... More

Stopped here immediately on arriving in the islands before we even found our hotel. It was Lunchtime but true pace was empty - often a danger sign. However, when hungry.... we ordered a family size pizza which arrived quickly Enough and was pretty good. Price was a shock, but that's Galapagos everywhere. We'd go back. Service wasn't super friendly, but... More
