Steak cooked to perfection with a beautiful sauce. Cooked amazingly well to your liking with a very good size. Fantastico service. The waiter, even though his English was poor, was passionate and still was able to help with the highest standard for everyone. Highly recommended.

We went there about the great reviews. They have a really pleasant service and the food is great! They even have organic coffee from Galapagos! It was a great experience to eat there.

What the title said. Stayed about a week and tried places from the walking market, pizza, burgers. I had the steak with pepper.

The 2 for 1 cocktails and seating right on the sidewalk to people-watch is what drew me in! I had the fish and it was fabulous and reasonably priced! I enjoyed everything and the mojitos were awesome!

Visited twice in the time I was there. The cod dish was a delight, as were the tremendous crepes. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing.

The Galapagos isn’t a culinary destination. Lots of shrimp and tuna. This restaurant, however, seems to be the best on Santa Cruz. The seafood bbq was OK (the tuna was overdone and the shrimp were hard to de-shell). Some of the other fish dishes in...More

Went twice, for lunch and dinner. Service is great, menu explains dishes. My favorite were the chicken and vegetable brochettes, although they made you choose one or the other, no combos. The chicken was so juicy, just like I remember from childhood. What has happened...More

It is a bit of a tourist trap, cashing in on a good location, but food is good and fresh. We enjoyed a nice dinner with complimentary cake for dessert. The main dissapointment was being constantly bitten by mosquitoes, a true mood killer...

This was our favorites. The food was good, the atmosphere lively and comfortable, the service was good. The drinks were also great. Make reservations, as we could not get in the first night.
