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

Isla Grill is somewhat in the middle of the main road along the water front. The service was very good and the seafood was also very good. However, the pizza was not that good, it tasted like warmed up freezer pizza, although they have a pizza oven in the restaurant. The bill included gratuity and tax. Be sure to check... More

Had the seafood pizza which was delicious. Good bar service. Lively atmosphere. Great service. AND quality wifi, which was lacking in our hotel and made catching up easier.

Normally I would rate this restaurant average 3 but for the galapagos I give it a 4. The beers are cold and they actually cooked my steak to medium rare as requested which is a big plus!

Very long wait time. Got out order wrong twice. It's a pity as the place looks nice. They just lack the basic discipline of writing an order, repeating it to the client to double check. Also unfortunate that after having told the waiter that our son was allergic to milk/lactose she did bring his dish full of butter sauce. Not... More
