We stopped to have a late lunch and we were happy we did. The food is wonderful and the atmosphere charming. Fresh fish and shrimp with a little added spice made my day. Try it and enjoy.

If you are in Manta, for business, pleasure or just as a port adventure in your cruise, don't forget to eat at this restaurant.

Not to miss their "encocado" (seafood on coconut sauce),... More

Outstanding in all respects. A wonderful restaurant anywhere, but somewhat of an Oasis in Manta. Also, I am glad that Manta is a family town, because we frequently eat lunch here with our energetic 2, 7 and 9 year old kids, and not one dirty look yet!

This place is not pretentious about what they do, and everything we (5) have tried up to now has been really, really fresh and expertly prepared, and most importantly, it has been that way every time I have eaten here. The restaurant has a fairly extensive menu, mostly centered on seafood, but also offering terrific steaks and pasta dishes. Their... More

We ate dinner twice at this charmingly beautiful restaurant with fast, friendly service. Fresh seafood was excellent, and who would think that tuna with peanut sauce could be so delicious?
