The vegetarian lasagne here is amazing! We ate it on numerous occasions. Also we came back for the blackberry brownies! Delicious. The owner was very helpful and extremely friendly and during our week on isabela we ate here for most of our meals. It has a very nice variety compared to to the set menus you receive elsewhere on the island and reasonably priced for the galapagos. Thank you!!

excellent swordfish in coconut sauce, grilled octopus in garlic sauce and nice to see some veggies. Chef is trained in Medellin Colombia. Owner very accommodating and good service. Nice spot with a bit of a breeze and park across the street. We found it better than Delphine's. Check out happy hour at Caleta Iguana on the beach ahead of time excellent pineapple dacs.

We enjoyed three dinners at El Cafetal during our time on Isabela. The owner was always accommodating and the food was great. We tried several of the fish specials, the ceviche and other appetizers - yum! We even had the opportunity to hear some local entertainment on one of the evenings when we were there. Would definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant. One of the better choices in the little town.

There are many other choices,but if you are in Puerto Villamil the oysters are to die for! If only I were there right now--the sun, the wonderful sandy street, the outdoor veranda, And the grilled oysters!!!
