Good Restaurant

Very nice place, from where you can watch people walking in the streets. Excellent service, Wifi, and, the most important, delicious food!

This is a great place for grilled seafood. Everything is prepared to order and they do a super job getting it right. Lots of alcohol beverages to choose from as well.

We had the classic sea food parilla, including lobster, squid and fish. The place is welcoming and the staff kind. Nice place.

Super super seafood! We ordered tuna with shrimp, had Tuna done rare (which in our opinion the only way to eat this fish) and it was the best tuna we've ever had. Super fresh and tasty. I had the mixed grilled platter and the calamari and octopus were very well seasoned and cooked. I loved it so much i had... More

The tuna and swordfish dishes were amazing! They have artisanal beers and tasty fresh fruit juices. Great customer service as well.

We only ate here once but the seafood (fish) was very good. Looking around we saw a T-Bone steak that is quite popular and clearly a lot to enjoy (yes, they raise beef on the Santa Cruz). Ambiance was comfortable and a popular place to hang out - even with TVs carrying US and European sports games.

We enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The waiter was so friendly, the decoration and atmosphere are lovely, it's in a good location and the food was nice. We had the burger and salmon salad.

We had dinner at Isla Grill and I'm still thinking about it. With the fresh fish market (literally) across the street, everything is as fresh as fresh gets, and it's cooked to perfection with yummy sauces & sides. While you can get pizzas and burgers and just about everything, you should focus on the grill items. They are truly exceptional!
