This place was recommended by our hotel staff. It was a short walk so we went there. Our appetizers and entrees were perfect. Excellent, friendly service too. We will definitely come back here next week when we’re back in town!

2 couples had dinner the night before a Galapagos trip and were not disappointed with the entire meal and service at a reasonable cost. The sautéed grouper was my meal and the best ever. Next time lobster.

The restaurant has delicious sea food. I had an octopus on the grill and a crab soup. The corvina is also outstanding. Service was efficient despite a full restaurant.
