We ran into Isola looking for a lunch place at the IFC mall and had a very good experience. Asking for a table we were informed that only terrace lounge tables are available as all others are reserved. With blue sky and sunshine that day we did not regret the situation and had a splendid time outside enjoying classical, well... More

If you are fortunate enough to sit on the outside terrace the views are spectacular despite the ongoin works to the MTR extention. At lunchtime there is a daily buffet in addition to a set priced lunch and the a la carte offering. The buffet is all cold and offers a good selection of seafood , Italian ham and salami... More

The restaurantt has a lovely terrace where you can sit and eat outside. I went there with four friends and the night was like a comedy of errors. One friend sent back his pizza twice as the cheese was not cooked. My pasta was pretty inedible. They bought the bill twice when we had not asked for it. The service... More

This restaurant has a fantastic location in the IFC Mall in Central - views of the harbour and across to Kowloon are uninterupted - a great place to watch the nightly Light & Music show. Sadly the rest of the experience is at best average. Food is not better than would be expected, in particular given the prices which are... More

I unexpectedly found Isola yesterday - what an oasis in the busy IFC Mall in HongKong. The welcome was friendly and accommodating even though the restaurant was very busy. The set lunch menu was well chosen and presented beautifully with the prompt attentive service. I would happily return when shopping in the area again.

Isola used to be great but has gone seriously downhill. I reserved for a business luncheon for 4 and it was a disaster. The service was horrible.... there were lots of servers but no one person seemed to have responsibility for a section or a specific table. At our lunch two starters (soup) came in a timely manner but the... More

We wanted a restaurant with a terrace so we could make the most of the Hong Kong autumn. The environment was perfect for a Saturday lunchtime catch up with friends and the restaurant was busy with families and friends catching up. Sadly, the service was poor and despite the many staff around nothing quite seemed to go right. When I... More

We visited on 18 Oct and we're looking forward to a great experience. Location was excellent, prices O.K., food was very good, except the wrong dish was delivered. The waiter was advised of this but no apology or consideration was given. This spoilt what could have been a great experience. We perhaps should have been forwarned as the waiter was... More

Had a good business lunch at Isola but am sure the best at Isola is dinner. Did not go for the Italian cuisine - supposed to be great - but went on a more conventional meal which turned out to be great. The service was good and friendly, the wine list and cocktail perfect. Desert "yummy". Will go back soon.

Very beautiful setting in the IFC mall with stunning harbour views out on the deck but also visible from inside. Light and spacious interior fit for a business lunch or romantic dining experience. A bit fancier than your average place and a bit pricier, but delicious and good quality food with an extensive menu. Like many places in Hong Kong,... More
