The restaurant sits next to the yacht club and the views are beautiful. The service was terrific and the wine selection outstanding. The food was full of flavor. Fish was local and fresh...Terrific experience

Since 2 years the kitchen improved a lot. Under the direction of Washington the service is one of the best in Punta. The view on the harbour is marvellous. Worth to go again for a nice dinner.

This restaurant is just by the sea and not far from the port so a perfect location with a splendid view. Portions are quite large so you may consider sharing the starter (we ordered the fried mozzarella and the carpaccio but we could have easily done with just the mozzarella). Food was OK, and just that. My fish was slightly... More

In fact we were heading to the restaurant next door. But this place gave us a warmer and more welcoming impression. The set up looked professional. The staff very polite and friendly. Wine card exquisite and reasonable prices. Food served was inviting as beautifully decorated... See pix. Can only recommend for a nice dinner with a fabtastic view.

It was one of the very few restaurants open on a monday night in november, but we were happy it was open. All the plates were delicious: the aubergine a parmeggiana, the local fish (brotola) with shrimp, the calamar ink fettuccini. And the price was ok for a Punta Del Este restaurant. The big window allows you to see the... More

We went for lunch at Isidora. The food quality was very good just watch the portions as they are quite large. I ordered the mix grill and it was huge. Definitely worth ordering but make sure you share it with someone. The service was adequate but definitely not exceptional. They set the table up to be fully served (I.E. put... More

We went here twice during our vacation: once with a group of 7 and once a romantic dinner for 2. Food, wine, ambiance, service & view were great. In my opinion the menu is not "kid friendly" with the exception of dessert. Other than that it was a great visit :)

We had dinner there last Saturday after a friend suggested we go there during our stay. I'm glad we followed the advice because the food is outstanding. The seafood risotto was the best I've ever had so far, and the view from the restaurant is lovely. Highly recommended, would love to go there again.

Beautiful setting with a wonderful view of the port. Food quality was excellent - had the brotola Florentine (white fish with spinach and cheese) which was a generous size and delicious. colleagues had the paella with rice and chicken, and lomo a los 4 pimientos which they claimed was great as well. Service was excellent, friendly, attentive, and spoke English.... More
