“Great location, excellent food presentation...”

Fruta Cafe
Ranked #64 of 83 Restaurants in Santa Cruz

Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 August 2017

The restaurant hides behind large garage doors when closed. When they open it shows off a rather boutiquey setup. Our table was a glass top with a 3D relief map under it... and the food in the reviews above does put that much attention on presentation. I'm a particular fan of the bulldog Margarita here. The location is good- there is a small street directly diagonal from this with little stalls for trinkets that opens late evening.
Staff was nice... only a couple tables are on the main street but all of them have great airflow. Worth trying while you are in Puerto Ayora.

Unlike other reviews I have read we did not find the service lacking. The staff was attentive and friendly. They were very helpful and understanding considering we are not very fluent with the language. As part of our Sunnyland Tours package our dinners were provided by Fruta Café. We enjoyed all of our prepared meals but we especially enjoyed the fried shrimp. The shrimp is the best we have ever eaten. Lightly battered and fried to perfection and they prepare an excellent chocolate milkshake. Unfortunately this was the last meal we ate there as we were leaving the next morning. The atmosphere was wonderful. Elevated seating area that is open to the street which added to the experience of dining in the Galapagos.

Cute place. Open air comfortable seating. With a name of Fruta y Cafe with huge coffee machine pictures of fruit drinks. Went for an early lunch late breakfast. Coffee took forever. Service was a complete mess.

As I sit here now using their Wifi which is strong compared to anywhere else in town, I only wish the food I've just eaten was better and not so overpriced.
Surroundings are well decorated and clean, the chairs are comfortable.
The service is good.
The food and drinks are average and a bit pricey.
Come here if you crave a decent wifi signal.

Thank TheProdigitalSon
