“Excellent food, good ambiance - a touch pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Have now been to The Island 3 times, and always had an excellent meal. Sitting on the patio is very nice. Inside is a little dark, but if it rains what can you do. Apps, main courses and desserts all very good (and portion sizes are ample). It is a touch pricey, perhaps 15% or so above what I would have expected, but overall I would continue to go back when in the area.

“You have to try the rose hip creme brule.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Dinner with good friends was memorable. Service was very good. My wife and I both had the lamb meat balls with home made gnocchi. Really good. The highlight for me was the rose hip creme brule. They pick their own rose hips according to the server. It was simply excellent.

“Fab Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

The terrace outside has a lovely view of the river and mountains, we ate outside and watched the sun go down. The food was excellent. The Coconut Prawns were scrummy as was the the Chicken & Ginger Spring Rolls. The staff were both very friendly and efficient.
