Amazing View, Good Food, A Tad Overpriced

The perfect place for a romantic dinner. Book a table on the terrace, ask for one on the front, so you can enjoy the amazing view of the bay at night. The food is good if not exceptionnal, so I got a feeling it was a tad overpriced for what it was. With 2 glasses of wine and one bottle... read more

This occasion was to greet some old friends and welcome them to Hong Kong. Isola's location is great. On arrival, the reception staff were dismissive and uninterested. OK, maybe they were having a bad day. The waiter assigned to out table was disinterested and slow. I asked is it would be possible for me to have a plate of antipasti... More

Slow and ignorant service. Food ok. Too cold inside. Music far to loud outside. Don't bother. A waste of an evening

First of all I have to say the quality of food was very good and everyone enjoyed the evening. However, personally I think it is a bit pricey for what it is and from my point of view I prefer restaurants not stuck in the middle of a shopping mall. Service was patchy and for the money there are better... More

The food is excellent and the cocktail is interesting. We have the Italian sausage and mozzarella pizza and it is beyond our expectations. Would try their other pizza selection next time when we visit. We have ordered a cocktail made with prosecco and black current liquor. It is refreshing and chilled. We are lucky enough to come on a sunny... More

We came across the restaurant after a day of sight seeing, not exactly dressed for the dinner. The restaurant is set in a classy area and very up market. We had a selection of dishes which included pizzas too big for one person. The baked lamb rack was cooked to perfection. The lobster meat pasta did not contain much lobster,... More

Casual dinner with friends after a busy day of sightseeing. There were six of us seated at a table outside and I was extremely happy with the spaciousness of the place settings, we certainly were not crammed together. Most of us opted for a pizza with a shared salad. The pizza was tasty but probably a little too big for... More

Hands down the worst dining experience of my life. Outrageously priced for small portions of basic food. Staff were rude and were trying to rush us out of the place. Will not be coming back again and would advise others to stay well clear of this place.

The view over the harbour is lovely and in the summer you can eat on the terrace. They even do gluten free pasta dishes so I had pasta with lobster which was delicious Pity they don't offer gluten free bread but apart from that the place is great. Very ood atmosphere for a date or for dinner and if flying... 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.
