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. Plus I can recommend the Pina Colada :) Considering you're in a very expensive part of the world it wasn't too pricey either (the prices in... More

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!

2 doors down & a lifetimes difference from il giardino - this welcoming grill is run to perfection by a bunch of local guys who clearly care about what they do, and enjoy what they do - generous portions of really good, fresh food & a friendly smile from across the street - def recommend

Although this place is quite touristy and on the main strip, they still had a delicious seafood platter and Argentinian steak. The side salad with spirallized carrots was quite a revelation - delicious! It was $40 for us with 2 entrees and a coke. I would recommend it for one of your nicer meals.

Service was terrible. We had to wait an eternity to be served and they weren't too friendly, either. The food was really good, but the place very crowded and loud. The drinks were pretty good, too. But I thought there were way too many tables placed in that place.
