This was the third time in this excellent HK restaurant. The food is good and there is a extended wine list available. I started with the beef carpaccio a true Isola classic. Only small comment I would have is that the carpaccio is too cold. This is a mistake made by many restaurants but did not expect this from such... More

Popped in for lunch whilst shopping in IFC Great view of the harbour. Good selection of food with suitable choice for children. My wife and I each had signature dishes Pork and Fish respectively which were delicious. Service was excellent. Recommend

I've been going to Isola for years. Last night was just such a disappointment. The food was good (well done to the chefs) but the rest of it was poor. Bad service - asking repeatedly for bread, water glasses to be filled etc. You felt you had to ask for everything. The red wine available at the more reasonable end... More

We've been passing by this resto until finally decided to try it one Sunday. It's mid afternoon so probably easy for us to be seated. Since it's mid afternoon so we tried their tea set and ordered another ravioli dish to fill our empty tummy. I should say that for a place of that class and being in IFC would... More

Restaurant was highly recommended by family in Hong Kong so I booked for my wife and I on our last day of the holidays as a special occasion. I booked on line (on their web page) and requested pre dinner drinks on the terrace before sitting for dinner at a table with a view for dinner inside the restaurant. When... More

This place used to be one of my favorites but it has gone dramatically down hill. It has the among the best views in town, among the highest prices, yet service is across the board abysmal, and the food quality has deteriorated too. We asked 3 staff for a seat before eventually finding our own. The place wasn't terribly busy... More

Isola sports a very trendy ambiance and attracts a mix of expats and Chinese customers. I was pleasantly surprised to find that their food selection was quite extensive, including homemade pastas with sauces like veal jus or sage butter as well as excellent pizzas. My family each ordered a pasta dish and we shared a truffle pizza with some arugula... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
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.
