Great place to have a nice meal, with excellent service from friendly staff. Probably in the top 5 resturants in the Poole Bournemouth area. The bistro menu, offer great value for money. Makes any occasion more special.

I have been trying to get to Isabels with my partner for some time now....but life always got in the way! Finally walked through the doors on my partners birthday and wow...well worth the wait.

Isabels has a lovely ambience. Food very good and well portioned. Drinks a little pricey. It would have got full marks if they had some gluten free bread.

Out with my Boss and two clients. As I am not local they recommended this place as it had a good reputation. I cannot fault a thing. Seated straight away. Staff were polite and professional. Orders taken quickly and delivered quickly. One of our group is a bit of a wine buff and he was amazed that the wine list... More

My girlfriend and I ate here for her birthday and we found the restaurant to be an extremely charming, traditional restaurant. We went on a Tuesday where we were offered a selection of either the bistro or a la carte menu. My girlfriend started with the pigeon and had a main course of roast duck in plum source both of...
