The place is beautiful, as part of a 5 stars hotel, but you don't need to be a guest to eat in here.

So far one of the best dinners I've ever had.

Even considering the place, environment, quality and location are amazing, the food is the star (as the service, too). The chef is a step forward your expectations, we asked 4 different dishes and every one was absolutely incredible.

We had the chance to know the Chef (Emilio), a young star who uses mostly local ingredients to create amazing main courses. You can feel passion, quality and unique flavor in the food.

The service is not less perfect as the food.

Get there is easy once you arrive to Santa Cruz Island. If you are not staying at the hotel, you have to go to the port, take a boat (taxi) and cross the canal (2 minutes, 1 USD), then walk 5 minutes through a beautiful path to Finch Bay Hotel.

Tip: there are not so many taxis (boats) after midnight, so it's possible to use the boat used for the hotel's staff, so you don't have to wait.

We went for a special dinner in our honey moon. The food was extremely nice and tasty yet the place (outdoor table with sea view) and host (Cesar- fabulous) really made the difference. Highly recommended for an incredible experience.

We had dinner here on two nights. Once with the snack menu sitting by the pool - hamburgers were great. Once in the more formal dining room inside. Meals and service were fantastic and a great wine list.

We went there for a family gathering last week and the food was one of the greatest experience we had in Galapagos. The fish was very fresh and the dishes were prepared so delicately it was an experience to eat there. Massively recommended for any person who wants to visit Galapagos. Every staff member was very attentive and gave us the best treatment possible. Finch Bay is top of the line and the food is the best part of it.

We were staying at the Finch Bay Hotel and decided to have our anniversary dinner there as well, after a great day of snorkelling and sight-seeing. And we weren't disappointed. We opted for the set menu and picked a yummy Chilean wine. The night couldn't have been better!
