Went there for dinner. The restaurant is located in the tourist area around the corner from the fish market, so it can get crowded at times. We went with the chicken, beef, mushrooms, and onion kebabs for our appetizers, and it was excellent. The Grilled Platter for two was also great for Galapagos standards. The meat was not the best...

Great food, good music, faster service compared to other restaurants. We were 4 in our group and spent about $40 each including drinks and tip.

We had a great dining experience in Isla Grill, well worth 5 stars. Everything was enjoyable, from starter to dessert.

I would highly recommend their pineapple shake. But my husband ordered the churrasquito steak and they just couldn't figure out "medium". The first time they gave it to us it was completely raw. Then they took it back and the outside was well done but the inside was completely raw. Totally gross. Blood everywhere. We sent it back a 3rd... More

Isla Grill is one of the best restaurants on Santa Cruz island. It has some great vegan dinner options and the service is excellent. I eat here every chance I get. Highly recommended!

This was our first restaurant stop when we visited Santa Cruz and we loved it so much we came again during our 4 day stay. The staff is attentive and the food is Great! Good grilled and healthy options, which I really appreciated. Great salads and seafood! (The pizza is also really good). Definitely stop here.

As many others have said; the tuna here is great. Far closer to what I'd hoped for from Galapagos; given it's all freshly caught. Really nicely cooked, medium rare as requested. My other half had the ribs and loved them. 4 stars instead of 5 as the prices are a bit much, even for the quality.

We shared a fish grill. Came with calamari, tuna and shrimp with your choice of sides. It was Valentine's Day and it was a full house service was still good.

Tuna and swordfish were not dry and tasteless like most places. The portions were very good and the service was quick as well. Isla Grill however is one of the more pricier spots to eat, but they were the only restaurant to offer a 15 percent off our next meal voucher.

We ate here three times during our stay. We had excellent fish dinners every meal. We eat dinner early, and the place was not crowded. The staff was excellent. Later on in the evening, the place is usually packed with people. Our meals, excluding any alcohol, were about $50 including taxes and service. We have traveled extensively and based some... More
