Having tried a number of places to eat in Puerto Ayora, I kept coming back to Isla Grill. The service was consistently great, with friendly staff and no sense of being rushed. Prices were low compared to other eateries, despite the restaurant being of superior quality and the food of a good quality. I enjoyed stopping by for an espresso... More

This restaurant serves various food, including pizzas, steaks and seafood. The seafood was really excellent and the service was quick and uncomplicated. Recommended , especially as because it is also surprisingly inexpensive.

Great food (generous servings...could easily share a meal) and beverage options, service cheerful/welcoming and they handle groups of any size with ease. Not local mama papa diner prices, however quality for cost is a YES.

We tried the tsunami grill here. We got a sidedish with salad and delicious mashed patatoes. The fish was served on a hot plate. The service was exceptional.

Isla Grill is small, cozy, great atmosphere and has the very best grill options in Galápagos. In addition, a big plus is the friendly, relaxed and very professional attitude of its young staff. In terms of food the "Happy Fish" with Dijon mustard sauce is one of my favorites and their grilled Galápagos spiny-lobster (locally called "langostino de Galápagos") is... More

Our experience was that the Galapagos is not a "foodie" destination. But this restaurant was the best in Puerto Ayora that we tried. It was busy but we were seated quickly, the food and service were good and reasonable priced. I'd go back.

We have eaten in some great places and this is up there with the best. Laid back atmosphere yet very efficient service Big portions and a very varied menu. Attention to detail and great ambience.
