Great New Year's Eve

We were recommended to visit this restaurant and were lucky to get a reservation on New Years Eve. We had a great time, the atmosphere was buzzing and we managed to see the firework display in the harbour at 12.00. The food was a bit slow in coming and a little disappointing. We put this down to... read more

We went there to have coffee and desert after our Dinner. Place was good and outside view was even better. There was a all female party which was making too much of noise and I felt disturbed. There was not desert without Egg so had to drop idea of Dessert and we just had coffee and came back

I'd a very long lunch with 2 friends at Isola yesterday. I can't even remember when I did dine at Isola before then. I didn't take the popular set lunch from which you could choose the antipasti buffet (looked quite appetising to me) as a starter since I wasn't very hungry. Also, we'd outdoor seating and I couldn't be bothered... More

We had the most amazing time here on our last night in Hong Kong. It was Chinese New Year and we wanted to go somewhere special to see the fireworks display on the harbor and have a romantic dinner. Well we were lucky to hear about Isola Bar & Grill and their Chinese New Year Dinner promotion. The entire staff... More

Nice busy atmosphere, quick service, food was ok nothing great, disappointed both with starter and main but not enough to complain. Wine was pleasant, staff were too. Interesting myself and colleague were only expats there. Maybe others knew something we didn't. Wouldn't be rushing back.

Based on reviews we came here for a burger as a break from Asian food. Ordered a burger and a couple of drinks and waited 25 minutes for the burger. I asked several times what was happening eventually they informed me the grill had been broken and was being mended hence the delay but it would come in 3 minutes,... More

View is great of the waterfront - definitely go buffet - their cheese selection and seafood is amazing. Although we ordered a la carte I would definitely recomend going buffet next time.

Average, isn't bad at all but overpriced for the quality of the food. I've lately tried few Italian restaurant around Hong Kong and I would say Isola is just above Average. Although the the location is great and the staff very nice.

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.
