IslaGrill was our go-to spot for lunch and dinner in Puerto Ayora. The staff was welcoming and attentive, the seafood (yellow fin tuna especially) and Galapagos Lobster was out of this world and the steaks were delicious and flavorful. We looked forward to our meals...More

Overall, the experience at Isla Grill was good; however, it almost didn’t happen as they still allow smoking by their patrons. Yes, it was supposedly “outside”; however, the tables are so close together (and barely outside) so we ended up tolerating the smoke for a...More

My wife and I really enjoyed the grilled octopus appetizer and fresh grilled tuna at this restaurant. The service was fast and friendly. Definitely a good choice in Santa Cruz.

If this restaurant were in my home town it'd get a 2/5 for vegetarian options. But as it stands in the Galapagos islands you're lucky to find anything so therefore I recommend this place highly for vegetarian food. It had about 5 options which is...More

Good food but crowded venue. Prepare to wait for a bit at peak times. Although I just had a salad it was tasty. Portion sizes are large and try their craft local beer - it's good.

We have been here 2 times. And all of the food is fantastic. We have had the steak, fish with veggies, chicken and hamburger. If we had more time on island we would go back again.

We ate here for both lunch and dinner. Staff are friendly, food is good and prices are on the high side but not outrageous.

I don't have a copy of the menu! Maybe on their web site. It's a high quality restaurant. I think it was about $30 a person. If you want cheap try the street of kiosks which has about ten restaurants side by side and you can... More
