Great vegetables with our two well prepared seafood dishes

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.

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.

Directly across from solymar hotel, you will find Isla Grill, recommended by the locals and Trip advisor and the food rates the ratings as it is very good. My husband's tuna surpasses Il,Giardino's down the street and he enjoys it. I have white fish recommended by the server and there is way more than I can eat. Although. It comes... More

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
