Fun to sit on the deck and have cocktails. Didn't really taste food except for plantain chips which were delicious.Great view of harbor. Wear bug repellant!

I don't know if this was an off night but everything was terrible from the service to the food. My family and I went there for a special dinner but we were extremely disappointed and there was nothing special about it. We waited for 40 min. before someone took our order and the restaurant was not even half way full.... More

We didn't go to the Galapagos for food, so we had no expectations. Throughout our tour, we never had a bad meal nor a great meal. The food was always decent with plenty of variety, but nothing mouth watering.

Looked Good...but too Pricey for a Backpacker. I checked this out, the food looked great, but I was turned off by the high prices and the lack of people eating at the restaurant. Generally, when a place a low turnover of plates, you need to be carefull about old food being served.

Red Mangrove Aventura Restaurant has one the best location across the island, and the restaurant itself is very nice. Food was overall ok, but the quality of the salmon tartare was really bad, I couldn't eat it... Loads of mosquitos outside and inside the restaurant (it could have been due to the humid season though)

We had a wonderful lunch here and enjoyed the views from the patio. We actually ate here twice and enjoyed our meals both times. You will have to spend more to eat here, but I would surely recommend this place for a nice lunch at least once while you're on the island. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone trying to... More

Great service but no exciting food. We did not like the sushi very much - their creations were rather weird and we do fancy both classic and fusion sushi!

Went here with my husband one night and had a great meal with a good selection of sushi and salads. Service was also excellent. Although the meal was a bit pricey, it was a good change of pace while we were in town.
