My boyfriend and I visited Isla Isabela for a total of 4 nights. We tried a good number of restaurants but this was our favorite by far... not going to lie we ate here 3 times. The owner is attentive, friendly, and cleaner than any restaurant in Isabela. The restaurant may not look exciting from the outside but it is... More

The food is mediocre, but the people are better. We stopped in because Javi was so kind to us when we were out and about. I would suggest going in if you are looking for a friendly face, but not for the meal alone.

Located near the entrance to the church, along the side street Calle las Fragas. The octopus was quite good and one person at our table ordered pizza and it looked great. The hamburger and tuna sandwich was not that good and the fried shrimp was over-fried in old oil – bad enough that my daughter couldn’t eat it. The evening... More

We were there for lunch and had hamburgers, since they did not have pizza at lunch. The burgers were huge and tasty. We had their pizza for dinner at their other restaurant (El Velero) on the square. You can see a man leave La Fogata and deliver pizza to El Velero around the corner on his bicycle every evening. Daniel... More

Like a lot of places in the islands, La Fogota features a lunch special … for $8 you get a large bowl of soup (cream-based the day we visited … served with fresh popcorn), choice of grilled chicken or fish, juice, and dessert (jello). Pleasant, open facility lets you catch an available cooling breeze.

Chose this for my first night in Isabela as the wi-fi wasn't working in the hotel and the menu looked reasonable. Good service and a great pizza however a 'charge' is automatically added to the food price making it more expensive than the menu states. Looked like a good place for families though.

Pizza was decent. Beer was cold. Service was ok. And los banos had TP, a sink and soap (rare to find all 3 in Puerto Villamil!)
