El Cafetal has a good location and good service. The two entrees that we tried here were both tasty, yet were both very small portions and practically double the cost of comparable entrees served at other restaurants in the area. Although the food tasted good,...More

We stayed 18 days in Galapagos with 12 on Isabela Island. We tried lots of restaurants but we received such a very bad welcome in this restaurant that we decided not to dine there. It looks to work only under reservations. It was booked for...More

Went here after a tip by a fellow traveller but were very disappointed. Dry, cold (fridge?) Lasagna... Costs over 3 times that of the smaller restaurants in PV but not worth that at all!

We just ate there last night and made reservations again for tonight.. The seafood and rice was delicious. My husband got the perfectly prepared tuna. Make reservations as the place fills up quickly.

Definitely on the more expensive end of dining options on the island - but you're on holiday and it's worth splurging to eat here at least once. The food is excellent. I ordered the Lobster which was delicious. We had a big group so food...More

Seriously amazing food on a quite dirt road on Isabella Island. A wonderful restaurant with high quality ingredients and a creative chef. The ceviche is worth the 20 minute wait for them to prepare it. It is made it order. The fresh fish meals were...More
