The food served does not always match up with the items listed on the munue. Only Spanish spoken and service is kind of slow. Soups were delicious though!

My wife and I decided to give El Encanto a try after seeing the special board they have out front. I had the fish and my wife had the chicken. They both came with soup (which was out of this world), fries and juice for...More

This place is next to all the other little restaurants along the street .They all have the $8 menus but this one has the smallest portions...Don't go there if you are hungry....

Their lunches are awesome. I had the grilled shrimp and it was the best shrimp I had on my entire galapagos trip. The spices they used were perfect. For $8, you get juice, soup, rice, salad, and a choice of several options (our options were...More

We had lunch there twice and chose the daily special both times. Whilst the food and service were both OK it wasn't special but daily special was reasonably priced for the Galapagos. Similar restaurants away from the main street are cheaper and most have similar...More

We were tempted by the $7 meal that was advertised on their board. I have to say, you get what you pay for. The meal includes a cheese soup (decent), juice (watered concentrate passion fruit juice), main course (I got 6-8 small breaded shrimp, cold...More
