This was my go to spot recommended to me by the hotel. It had a good variety of food and drinks. If I wanted something light or something more substantial they had it. They had an excellent frozen lemonade, my favorite drink in hot weather.

Good attention, good food. The pizza was specially good, the thin crust gives it a very Italian style. The seafood was very good too.

We went here for breakfast. They have a very standard, American-style breakfast. Breakfasts are very similar in Puerto Ayora Fruit in Galapagos is very good and this was no exception They are very close to day trips etc. We started here for a day trip to Garrapatero Beach

We ate and drank here a lot, the food was great and the service was quick and attentive. The pancakes for breakfast or lunch are fantastic. Popular meeting spot for tourists

Stopped twice here for dinner and an ice cream. Pretty good but then we discovered the street food a few blocks away. Food wasn't that brilliant. Wifi was pretty amazing at Hernans. Good fan in the heat

There was a big menu with a lot of choice including a large selection of pizzas and even a ‘create your own’ pizza section – so my husband had a margherita and I created a prawn and tuna pizza which was delicious and really hit the spot. It was a lot cheaper than eating in our hotel restaurant as well!

If you get tired of mundane repetitive hotel fare like I did, stop here for a good burger, club sandwich, fries and pizza. Good people watching too and big TVs for watching soccer, etc. I always come her when I am in Puerto Ayora.

The service is very slow and I had better food at other restaurants in the area. Make sure you ask for drink prices before ordering. I ordered 2 rum and cokes thinking they were on happy hour, but was charged $17 for 2 drinks.

Thank Joe G
