I'm so glad we found this restaurant. It's just off the main strip near the Entebbe office. The service was good with lovely staff & food was delicious. I had the Hawaiin chicken & the OH had fish of the day (tuna) which was perfectly cooked & tasted divine. It's easy to miss this restaurant but it's well worth visiting.

El Cafetal is such a wonderful little restaurant in Puerto Villamil. The food is delicious, the place has a nice atmosphere and service is really great. There are many different types of dishes, including local seafood as well as vegetarian options. It is also one of the very few restaurants in town where payment with card is possible (at the time of writing) - which can be helpful sometimes. ;-)

Its right next to the church on the main square. There is outside seating but needs reservations. We sat indoors in a very eclectic setting. Hammock, banana tree, yoga mats, candlelight. Our waitress Camilla was very bubbly and took good care of us. The menu had a traditional Christmas dinner option. We ordered garlic bread, chicken pasta, plantain pizza, and shrimp n fish in coconut sauce with rice. The drinks were good with cuba libre and caipirnha. We eneded with tiramisu.

We ate one dinner at El Cafetal and ordered the ceviche mixto and a curry tuna dish. It was about $70 with drinks. The ceviche was pretty bad with spoiled white fish. The tuna in the main dish could not have been worse if they tried - overcooked to the point that it was (so) hard to tell what you were eating - the texture of some petroleum product dipped in curry sauce. The service was good, but if you're going for the food either skip the ceviche or any seafood and order the pizza which other reviewers seem to have enjoyed. Better yet, go few blocks to the little village square where the locals eat. We had simple but good food there - 2 fresh grilled seafood dishes for $16.00.

I was on Isabela for a month and there are WAY better options than this place. It's overpriced, very long wait times (over an hour for ceviche) very small portions for such a high price. Go to Albita Grill two blocks away to get better food for way cheaper!!

I am sure many of the beach towns have a slower pace, but this restaurant service was really slow. The food wasn't outstanding. They get a lot of reservations from tour companies - and if a large tour group is in, then the stand-alone customers seem to not get enough attention.

We ate here twice during our stay on Isabela. We had a great dinner both times- seafood and vegetable dishes with coconut sauce. The owner Veronica was very welcoming and clearly actively engaged in the restaurant. Located right off center plaza one can eat inside or outside.

Most places in Ecuador don't have decaf coffee, but this place does. It also has the best coffee my partner had on Isabela. We liked the burger but the fish ceviche was a bit vinegar-y. The portions are huge tho - very nice. The woman who served us was adorable.

Probably our favorite meals on the islands, and the only restaurant we visited twice. Service was friendly and personal, the local craft beers were interesting, and the (sea-) food was fantastic. The resident dog was the most unique animal we saw on the islands.

My family and I ate twice in this place. The food was really good and the chef was very friendly. The coffee was also very aromatic and good. Compare to other places in the island, I highly recommend to stop here.

You need to be patient as this place is the most popular and the best restaurant in town, and service can be incredibly slow, but usually worth waiting for!

As a group of 11 we were welcomed into the main dining area inside their courtyard where the staff quickly put a table together that fit us comfortably The seafood grill for two was fantastic and allowed us to share appetizers and dessert and this place even Brews their own beer I highly recommend the “Negra” flavoured by coconuts Plantain chips were also above average and the tables alone the street were romantic
