Aquelarre Restaurant, Santa Cruz Island, ecuador

Aquelarre Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Aquelarre Restaurant, located on Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos, is a popular site for sustenance for groups taking a break from touring the rainforest or tracking giant tortoises. This converted old house features lush vegetation outside and a dining room accented with cedro wood columns and an interesting array of antiques, art and pottery. Guests can expect to be greeted by the co-owners, Osvaldo Donoso Barrios and wife Ruth, before sitting down for a meal of Ecuadoran food. The menu might begin with quiche, followed by sea bass and vegetables, concluding with a crêpe filled with fruit mousse. Dining is by appointment only, and reservations should be made at least two days in advance.
