This was our best meal in Galapagos. The grilled fish and shrimp were wonderful. Also loved the stuffed baked potatoes. Would strongly recommend eating here. Drink specials were also a good price. You can watch the chef grill the food!!!

We spent a few nights in the Galapagos earlier this month and tried a few different restaurants, but we had one of our most memorable meals at IslaGrill. We ordered the seafood grill and were blown away by how much food it entailed (tuna, prawns and calamari amongst others), and how delicious it was. The seafood is served on a... More

Warm, friendly atmosphere. The seafood pasta was outstanding, but the pork chop, while good, was rather overcooked and dry. Prices are reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

Beers were on special three for one dollar. We returned another night for grilled chicken and mushrooms also with salad and a side. It was also... More

Isla Grill offers a range of foods, including some traditional Ecuadorian flavors, as well as some twists. I had a seafood pasta with a vodka cream sauce that was one of the most wonderful dishes I've ever had, I practically wanted to lick the bowl. The only reason I give four, rather than five stars is the change was wrong... More

Isla Grill is a lively place in the evenings with a good atmosphere. The food we had (one seafood dish, one steak) was among the best we tasted in the Galapagos or Quito and we're judging the restaurant by these standards, not vs what we might expect to find in London, New York or Paris. Wine was also good; and... More
