“Always Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We had dinner there and it was great. The previous time was about a year ago and we have never been disappointed. It was a Friday and you have to book. The place is very popular.
Their octopus starter was excellent and the shank main course was a winner. Service was prompt and the staff very friendly. They have a good wine selection and their prices are very reasonable.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

A last minute decision to dine at Ioesco Cafe certainly was not a disappointment. We didn't realise how busy or popular this restaurant was on a Friday night. Not having a reservation was not a problem. We enjoyed a wine while a table was found for us. A comprehensive menu and daily specials made it difficult to choose. We went with the schnapper and the barramundi and both were delicious as were the vegetables that accompanied the meal. A lovely atmosphere, great food and service. A definite winner for us. We will be returning and recommending Ioesco to friends.

“Wonderful food, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

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, without the blue vein cheese. Even before my husband finished asking for the dish to be altered he had been told it was no problem as everything is prepared from scratch. Our Italian companion had the lasagne and his wife the barramundi. We were all very satisfied with our choices, I even made the comment on finishing my dinner that I could have that every night. The service was superb and I noticed the wait staff actually looking around the tables to check if anything was required, something sadly lacking in restaurants these days. We will most certainly be back again hopefully soon.
