We have eaten here with friends a couple of times before and have never been disappointed. It took me some time to make my choice, then the waiter arrived with the specials list and I was spoilt for choice once again. I had the Atlantic salmon with prawns, my husband (with dairy intolerance) was able to order chicken with mushrooms,... More

Loved this place. Great venue, excellent quality food and a suave kind of atmosphere. Had the Calamari for entree which were beautiful, eye filet for a main medium rare which melted and chocolate moose for desert which i can say was the best moose i have ever had in my life!

Desserts were STUNNING, mains and entrees really nice however the service was questionable. They tried (and seemed nice) BUT there were lengthy delays and even when we asked for water we had to ask 3 times to finally get some. We were a table of 9 at Sunday lunch - and most places have issues managing large tables but the... More

Ioesco is our favorite restaurant and always have excellent food and service. We had lunch with friends on Sunday 4 May and noticed the service was not up to the usual standard, probably as the owner was not present. Subsequent visits were excellent as expected and we remain avid supporters of this excellent restaurant.

This is our favourite special 'local' restuarant. We have had lunch just for 2 and a dinner for 10 here and it is always great. The food is outstanding and the service is subtle yet well defined. Now that I am thinking about it, I might book for lunch tomorrow ...

We had a most enjoyable dinner at Ioesco, prompting us to return the following night! The service was genuinely attentive, with wait staff engaging in conversation and knowledgeable about the menu. A main course dish for one of us was customised to accommodate a food intolerance and the chef was serious in his consideration of which dishes could be varied... More

I totally recommend this restaurant - I had the steak & seafood. The steak was cooked to perfection (medium side of medium rare), was very tender and a good size. There was plenty of bug meat & prawns, both perfectly cooked to be tender & juicy and served with a tasty sauce. I had the cheese platter for dessert, which... More

We recently dined here with two friends for dinner on a Saturday night. Started with two entrees of calamari and potato croquettes. Both were fine although we thought the potato entrée was a curious choice to offer. However, we then ordered three pizzas, a prawn, traditional and Mediterranean. The prawn one was passable but the other two totally overcooked. We... More
