Birthday for sure

Isola is an excellent restaurant. Every time on my birthday we would go to Isola. The food there is splended. They have a great buffet or you can order. The food is so fresh and the lobster well I probably take 3-4 dishes of lobster every time. I recommend Isola for sure.

Isola offers a true italian menu, a cozy environment inside (even at the counter if alone) and a nice terrace overlooking Victoria harbour with a nice view on Tsim Sha Tsuii. Service is quite good, although the large number of waiters walking around would let one expect better. Food is OK, however I would have expected a bit better considering... More

Isola consists of both a bar and a restaurant, though connected, they each offer a very different experience. The restaurant is lavishly, yet tastefully decorated and features lovely views of the Harbor. The bravura menu caters to all tastes, including many vegetarian options as well. Good service. The bar features either an indoor lounge or al fresco dining, also overlooking... More

We ate at the Isola Bar & Grill exterior balcony, with a wonderful view of the Hong Kong Harbor. The menu features a large selection of mostly Italian dishes; prices are fine dining level. Service was good; at 8:00 PM the restaurant was very crowded, a sign of Isola's popularity

This is a favorite and delightful lunch spot for me.... lunch buffet is high quality and an easy option. The balcony overlooks a world class sot for a glass of wine and light(or heavy) meal.....great chef too.

We enjoyed cocktails at the alfresco part of the bar and were treated to a spectacular view. Shop in the mall and enjoy cocktails at the bar. Watch the sun go down and the lights come out.

A great location, nice terrace and big interior , with a lovely design. A superb view in the Barbour and skyline, perfect stage. The food is Italian, and is ok. Nothing amazing, but decent pasta or pizza. But it does not really matter, the spectacular setting - ask for the terrace despite the heat - is really worth it.

Isola is a bit on an institution in IFC. Great food and service and what a view over the harbour. The set lunch is good value and you can really indulge yourself with the buffet for starters and dessert. But leave room for the main course. Today I had swordfish which was light and full of flavour. Well worth a... More

It's a worth visiting place in Hongkong...very popular but quite expensive. It is situated at IFC mall...getting reservation is not that easy. It's known for italian food. Different kind of pizzas and pastas are main items. Different deserts...The service is really good and fast. The atmosphere... the people around you... a very different class...Give it a try if your pocket... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
