You need to eat here!!!

We ate here three days in a row because it was so good. Normally I like to spread my business around when I am travelling but I had to keep coming back to try another item from the menu. Try the Calamari Pizza or any of the salads. Wait staff was polite and friendly and the prices were quite... read more

Over-priced beers, service already added to the bill. I believe my lady friend drank a $3.50 diet Coke at this establishment.

We ate here as part of our tour package. The food was very nice and the staff were very professional. The fruit drinks were yummy!

We stopped here for cocktails with friends and soon decided not to stay for dinner. The table and the service were fine, and the view was nice, but each drink tasted as if it were just water and flavoring, with none of the advertised alcohol. When we finally realized we all had the same issue and asked the waiter, he... More

We had the grill chicken and it was great, no complaint and the service was prompt. A little over priced but comparable with the other restaurants around the general area

We ate at a number of highly rated restaurants in Santa Cruz. This restaurant was ok. The sea food a little over grilled. It was ok.

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 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... 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
