This is probably a great restaurant but it is also a perfect place to pause on a hot afternoon for cervezas (beer) and lemonade The breeze is delightful and the surroundings stunning. Service helpful and smiling. A quite wonderful setting.

Puerto Amistad has great views of the bay and is where traveling yachts anchor. It is rather expensive and the food is just average.

We enjoy eating here very much the food is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. We really enjoy the people we meet every time we go there. The setting is very nice, they sit right on the water so it is very relaxing to enjoy a drink in the evening. We will be going back again.

Friendly welcome. Nautical feel. Excellent wifi. I intended just to stop for a drink but saw the prawn Ceviche as a speciality. I wish I hadn't. It was just a cup of pico de gallo with a few unfresh prawns thrown in.

We stoped by for lunch, it had been wuite awhile since I had a hamburger and needed my fix. Satisfied, and so enjoyed talking to the owner Tri, who gave us a great recommendation to stop at Mindo on our way to Quito. This restaurant is also a haven to cruisers like us, although our boat is at a different... More

Couldn't ask for a more beautiful location on the Chone River in Bahia. Gorgeous view in the evening with the Los Caras Bridge lit up. The food is average and the prices are on the expensive side. Clean and good service.

Service was slow due to some big meeting going on there and we could only sit along the side and not in the restaurant. We had the grilled fish and it was very good, everything we had was very good. Higher priced but not bad but worth it.

This place serves very good food, but sometimes, the service lacks a little (maybe more than a little...). It's also more expensive than other places in town, but you won't have the same view elsewhere! Menu is a mix of local fresh food and comforting American specialities (excellent Hamburger).

Excellent food with great service! A wide selection of drinks. Located on a pier overlooking the river. Owners are very pleasant. A little pricey for Bahia, but worth it.

Puerto Amistad is built on a pier out over the bay and offers a great location to kick back, relax and enjoy a beverage while watching the world go by. We had lunch there and enjoyed the location and the friendly wait staff. Unfortunately, our lunch was a bit disappointing. Our appetizers were quesadillas. The chicken and cheese quesadilla wasn't...
