My wife and I have been visiting Isabel's for 7 years. It is out special occasion restaurant, full of memories and ambience. Once again we were not disappointed. We visited on our anniversary and as always the food and service were impeccable. Maggie and her front of house team have mastered the friendly, yet not intrusive style of service, which... More

We could only get a table for 9.15 on a Friday as we were late booking, but we eat late normally so that wasn't a problem for us. If you like to eat early then booking well in advance would be sensible. The whole experience was fantastic and we would go again in a heartbeat. Lovely menu, great service from... More

We ate here during a weekend break to Poole. I selected it on line and booked over the phone. The restaurant even phoned to remind us of our booking. The service and food were second to none. A bit pricy but well worth it.

First time eating at oIsabel's and I will definitely be going back. Great choice of amazingly thought out main courses to choose from in a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere.

This was our second visit and we wondered if it better our first outing. We had fillet steaks which were cooked to perfection and possible the best we have ever eaten! Service was outstanding along with ambience. It was the perfect meal. Many thanks

We've eaten here several times. Each time the food has been excellent, beautifully presented, the service attentive and the ambience wonderful (especially for a romantic meal). Memorable evenings every time. We will be coming back again and again.

The food was interesting in the choices on offer. For example my husband had pigeon which he hadn't eaten since our trip to Egypt many moons ago. My fish was perfectly fresh and huge - prices very reasonable and ambience abounded this small establishment. Very busy so book a table you will be pleasantly surprised. A little gem.

Wide menu with a very good choice of dishes with a French overtone. My venison was very tender, and my wife's duck was great. Very good mixed seafood salad to start. Because of the high booths, difficult to attract a waitress.
