We went and had tuna steaks (fish of the day). It was $10 each which is reasonable for the Galapagos and it was a really good meal. Recommend going here. You could also get lobster!

During the day the restaurants are closed and the street is open to vehicle traffic. About 6pm all the restaurants open and put their tables in the street for dinner service. The restaurants are very similar here but went here on the recommendation of our...More

They have the best ceviche we tried while we were in the Galapagos (and we ate ceviche every day!). Delicious food, and a fantastic atmosphere on the kiosk street!

All restaurants, lunch or dinner, offer pretty much the same good food at good prices: Standard soup+rice plate lunches for $5, or grilled fresh lobster/fish dinners for $12 (per person). We ate here about ten times in two weeks and were never disappointed (or ill)....More

As other reviews say the Calle de Kioscas (Kiosk Street) is the name given to part of the street which after 6pm is closed off and all the restaurants ("kiosks") set up tables and chairs and light their outside bbq grills. You can choose lobster,...More

Interesting setting. The street closes for the evening and all of the restaurants pour out into the street for a street food fest. There are many choices and this one was ours. Lobster was ordered many ways by our group and all said it was...More

Don't know why it is rated so low. I love this place. Great local eats for cheap. The best part is the dinner time after sunset. The whole block is set up as outside eatery with fresh fish. We chose a $25 one grilled and...More

Really enjoyed the bruja cooked over coals - a delicious fish; great service and good pasta dishes. More economical than other restaraunts.

Description
Renato's. They are located just off the corner of Av Baltra and Charles Binford. It's a street that comes alive at night with many little restaurants grilling various different types of food. Renato is actually the man at the grill and owner, a great fellow at that. This is definetly good food at a reasonable price. You can get a meal anywhere from $5.00 to a full lobster (when in season) for $25.00. Just visited there in mid October 2011. I believe the street is also referred to as the Kiosko. We also ate at some other restaurants in Puerto Ayora, but this one had a real adventurous and local feel.
