My husband tried the garlic shrimp - they were small and not a big portion. They were not the large shrimp seen at the nearby market. The vegetable spaghetti was not good either. Many other better choices locally.

We went to this restaurant as everyone told us is one of the best in Puerto Lopez. The facilities are humble but clean. The food wasn’t particularly good rather average. The experience was a bit weird as the owner joined us in our table which...More

Every time I visit Puerto Lopez I must go to Carmita's! Food is fresh, delicious taste, great prices, friendly service! Must have the seafood rice, ceviche and seafood soup cazuela! Restaurant is located oceanfront across Malecón in the center of town.

We were recomended this restautant by our taxi driver. I ordered Sopa Marinera which was absolutely brilliant. My family ordered Pescado al ajillo and Pescado a la plancha. Excellent service, clean and with the best flavour of the Manabi Province.
