The owner Angelo mixed a large jug of white sangria made from champagne/cava which was really super as we waited for lunch - a great way to chill out and relax prior to the meal! The food was excellent especially the fish paella, which contained all high quality sea food ingredients and the service was very gracious and efficient. The... More

The home made paella and sangria attracted us to sit in this restaurant which turned out to be no disapointment at all. The warm strawberry crema catalana was delicious as well. A few tables, chilled atmosphere. The younger waiter is very pleasant and smily.

It is a couple of years since we ate at Golf Isabel - the last time was a New Year's Eve which was a fantastic evening - but this time we were looking for somewhere to have a "better" dinner with friends. Golf Isabel did not disappoint - the restaurant was cosy and we were made to feel extremely welcome... More

I returned to El Golf Isabel rather reluctantly after my last visit was spoiled by the strange and aggressive behaviour of the lady "in charge". This time, however, we were greeted by the owner who was both relaxed and charming. We had not booked but were immediately shown to a table and made to feel welcome. Two of our party... More

We were staying very close to this restaurant and had eaten here in the past. The food is excellent and the choice superb. Our only reservation is the service. The women "in charge" comes across as a bit gruff and cold. It is to my great shame that I don't speak Spanish, Catalan or French, and maybe the gruffness is... More

We've eaten here in many occasions & the food never fails to disappoint. There's a lovely atmosphere to the restaurant & it makes for an enjoyable evening. The staff are pleasant however the owners could be nicer, don't let that put you off though as it's definitely worth a visit.

Have dined in this restaurant a few times over the years. The service is gentle and charming as long as you are not in a hurry. Slow down and enjoy the excellent food and wine list
