Pretty nice place

My mom and I had this place recommended while on a tour and so we decided to check it out. We went pretty early in the evening so basically no one was there. One of the main draws for us was the WiFi, since our hostel didn't have good WiFi, but the place looked really nice and was located off... read more

We went to Isla Grill the very first night when we arrived at Puerto Ayora due to reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We were greeted by very friendly hosts to make our seating and drink order. When it came to food, we were disappointed by the quality of the main ingredient and how it was prepared even though the... More

My boyfriend & I were in town for two nights. The first night we are here and we're disappointed with the food. His steak was bad and my grilled tofu was awful. But the passionfruit vodka drinks were A-mazing and strong. :-). Next night we had drinks only here - they were out of lemons needed for the vodka drink... More

Every restaurant in PA is pricey but this one offers real value for money- I had lovely fresh fish and a salad, my kids had pizza and a burger. the service was friendly and fast and there was live music. It gets busy so book a table or be prepared to wait.

Everything that is on the menu is prepared and served up to standard. Really good choice of vegetables with the main dishes, delicious sweets for desserts and excellent service. Never tried it for b'fast (not sure if it opens early). Highly recommended.

We ate there after our cruise and again after our week on Isabela. Both times, the food, the wine and the service were excellent. The first time, our waiter was Oscar and when we return, we made sure to be in Oscar's section. He is the best waiter in the Galápagos. We had the Isla Grill for two, an orgy... More

The excellent tuna served rare as requested, with the oyster and soy sauce served on the side and the "Happy white fish" with mustard sauce was served with a choice of side (we chose cheese potato and broccoli with asparagus) as well as salad. Meals were a reasonable size so we not left hungry with one course.

We tried the seafood sampler and it was amazing! Salads and fruit juice drinks were also very good. Would recommend for one of the dinners in Puerto Ayora. We really enjoyed this dinner! Great services as well.

I had the darwin fish which I thought was great! Cooked perfectly, the vegetables in a garlic butter sauce was awesome. My husband got a chicken sandwich which he thought was a bit dry. I got a mojito which was a good size and tasty. The prices were average $15-$20.
