As you might guess by its king-ly name, the Royal Palm serves some of the Galapagos’ most refined and evolved cuisine (we doubt Darwin or his crew dined on spherified mango or chicken “pearls”). Chef Enrique Sempere injects traditional Ecuadorian flavors with nouveau technique and sophisticated Asian flare. His dishes showcase the bounty of the Pacific, highlighting local seafood like cod, tuna, and slipper lobster.
