We have been here 2 times. And all of the food is fantastic. We have had the steak, fish with veggies, chicken and hamburger. If we had more time on island we would go back again.

We ate here for both lunch and dinner. Staff are friendly, food is good and prices are on the high side but not outrageous.

Very good food. Served fast. The place makes you want to hang out for a while. It is safe, clean food. The best part is the service. Servers are very nice and friendly.

This place was awesome. We had a surf and turf platter between 2 people and enjoyed it a lot. More than enough food! It came with a salad and another side like fries or vegetables... Its well priced and located right on the main street... The waiters were friendly and always around. We would definitely go back here.

Eat here 2 out of 4 nights. Great staff made us welcome and excellent service too. Lovely wine and great steak! Really enjoyed this restaurant and some of the best food we had whilst touring Ecuador and Peru over 3 weeks.

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...

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!
