There are some recent not so great experiences by tourists dining at Waraguma reported in response to a thread on AC Good Eats which I started on Scubaboard AC Eatery Recommendations (starting at post #6).
Reports say the food is very good and that the portions are plentiful but that the pricing can differ between quoted and actual. It's only fair to give the owner(s) a chance to respond; I certainly don't want anyone to miss out on their wonderful food because of a simple misunderstanding. Comments?

It is good, but prices are high. We paid close to $30 US for a lobster burrito and 2 tacos that were not good at all. Tasted like dog food.

I only ate their food once and both times way to salty for me plus prices seemed high. I think they thought I was a tourist. LOL

Waraguma is always a consistent favorite for us, but we don't eat out that often (and when we do, we like a better atmosphere). However, we have recently heard mixed reviews from others.

We did split the seafood soup several weeks ago for lunch and it was delish and huge - really too much for 2 people. It was filled with all sorts of seafood, including scallops and crab (which is very expensive here) and I think the price was around $48 BZ/ ?GST. Not sure I could duplicate that dish for that amount...

I think they should either improve the atmosphere or reduce their costs / ingredients/ prices (and perhaps the quantity).... The atmosphere just cannot command the prices they are charging IMO.

Isn't Waraguma the same place the Papasusa Lady is at?

I hear what you are saying Jeff. all I know is the food got worse and the prices went higher and I have only been coming to the Island for the past 4 years. It seems when they opened the larger place everything went down hill (food wise) and uphill( price wise.)

I don't eat street food and frankly did not have much of a positive attitude when I first tried the place. I like this place and think it is really cool. They have a nice side area and the Pupusas are amazing. Certainly a lobster burrito is not going to be sold for 20 BZD since the thing is the size of a room at ruby's.

This is street food with a seat and as far as I am concerned worth every penny.

I have never been to a restaurant that I did not have a complaint about.

We eat two of there burritos, one with chicken one lobster. The lobster burrito was more like a soup, very saggy with a strange taste an lot of rice inside, the chicken burrito was delicious.

But it was never worth the high price.

Better go to Elvis, Red Ginger or ask locals where to get delicious burritos without spending a arm or a leg.
