I can't say that the food was extremly tasty, in our hotel it was better. But in general the place is rather nice

Mine was horrible; her cerviche was OK. The reviews of the service are pretty accurate. There's not much more to say...

Cesar's was recommended by a resident of Isabela as the best restaurant in Puerto Villamil. I ordered a grilled fish dinner and thought it would be a real treat on this island. However, the fish was terrible. It tasted like rubbery chicken! It was the worst meal that I had in a two week trip to Ecuador. My husband's fish... More

We ate at cesar's and were thoroughly disappointed. The service we had, sat outside was appalling and our minuscule food amounts took far too long to arrive for what they were. Our food was overpriced and had very small portions. We would definitely not recommend dining at cesar's.

The service was slow which is ok if it is worth waiting for . The rice was crunchy hard ie not cooked. Chicken was swimming is some sort of sauce. Fish should have been good but was just ok.

The food was fairly decent here and it was probably the most crowded of all the nearby restaurants. Service was a bit slow and it took a while to get drinks.

The food was good, the staff even better, lots of variety and the only restaurant that accepts credit cards on the island.

After experiencing mostly uninterested or even plain unfriendly service by waiters in Galapagos / Ecuadorian restaurants, the very friendly service in this place was very welcome. We ordered a simple meal starting with some delicious 'crema de zapallo' (pumpkin soup), with a pricy bottle of sauvignon blanc. Serving the food took extremely long, but it was ok and tasty. The...

We ate here twice, one dinner and one lunch. The food service is slow and the restaurant is hot. The food is ok but nothing brilliant. It's the first time anywhere I have been served a lobster that was not cleaned. It was halved and the poop shute was sliced in two tainting the meat. The cheeseburger didn't have cheese... More

We went to Los Delfines for dinner, but it was full, and that's Thursday night! So we moved on along the restaurant strip and got a table at Cesar's. Fish and shrimp ceviche was delicious, but it took forever (45 min or so) to get it, we had to remind the waiter. When the main dish arrived (grilled octopus) it... More
