We wanted to have a night out for drinks and headed to El cafetal. We asked for the menu but the owner at the front desk said they only worked with reservations. Then he proceeded to say in the most arrogant manner "we are the...More

Good fish of the day (but $25). Good lasagne. Mix seafood not very tasty with almost no sauce. Green salad is actually a side order, but $10! Caipirinha not very good, small and for $10. Nice waiter. Much too expensive for average food.

By far the best meal you will come across on Isabella! We had dinner there twice and both the main courses and desserts were delicious! The prices are also higher than the other places, but it is worth paying for and they accept both Visa...More

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.

We were on Isabela for 5 nights, so we tried a good few of the places. Coco Surf and this we ate at several times- this just pipped it though with the best food- beautifully presented- fantastic ceviche, good balance of flavours, chef knows how...More

Best seafood pasta I've ever had, very friendly manager, so not sure what the other people are saying here, if you're a normal nice person the manager is super friendly, maybe if you're an idiot you get what you deserve. Really delicious food and went...More
