We has a very good meal here. The steaks are of a high standard and the sides are excellent. A glass of wind wasn't too expensive and the service very efficient.

Easy to see why this place is so well recommended. The steaks were superbly cooked to order, the starters tasty and wine well chosen to match the main course. If you are looking for a proper restaurant on the island this is the choice.

Had lunch and dinner at the IslaGrill. Very nice menu, service and food. Grilled meats were very good. My wife enjoyed their grilled seafood platter. One of the nicer places in town certainly and centrally located. You can't miss it.

We enjoyed this place. We visited in our honeymoon. We got the grilled meats for two. They staff was courteous. It was too expensive considering the place we were at and the type of food we got.

This place is owned or run by folks from Argentina and they are famous for their "parilladas" a grilled feast for two of filet, longaniza, chorizo (brats), chicken, and pork chops. This is served on a mini-grill with a carbon underneath to keep it warm while you devour this delicious amazing order. Served with a fantastic chimichurri sauce, stuffed potato,... More

Vast, high quality menu. Argentinas steaks are a steal at around $18 and chocolate fondue is a great idea when you fancy something sweet in this warm climate. Only complaint was that on both Saturday evenings when we visited there was a guy singing and playing the guitar. I found that his music wasn't upbeat enough for a Saturday night... More

Good menu selections and the food was excellent! We had a fish dish and shared a meat, poultry, fish platter that was so much food we couldn't finish it. Really good food!
