Il Giardino



This is not only a new restaurant in Puerto Ayora, but also one of the best, too. It is ever-popular with locals, domestic tourists and international tourists.

The Italian cuisine here is absolutely splendid, with a variety of dishes to choose from, ranging from seafood, meat and pasta, and there are also special items on the menu that get changed daily. This is a great spot for meat eaters, but also vegetarians as there are some wonderful salads on offer.

If you still have room after your main course, you'll love the desserts, which are delicious and attractively made, and include waffles, tarts and cakes. In addition there is also an ice-cream parlour, which stocks no less than 24 different flavours.

To wash all of that down you can choose between a number of teas and coffees, fruit juices, shakes and even cocktails if you're feeling like a fix.

The interior and exterior of Il Giardino are simply gorgeous, and exude a pleasant ambience, which is peaceful and inviting. There are tranquil gardens outside, and a terrace for socialising, and inside the main dining area is divided into several sections, connected by a labyrinth of stairways - giving it a delightfully quirky charm.
