“Best dinner we had on the Island.”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

This restaurant is very, very good. The owners actually made the entire lower level of their home into a great restaurant. The owner took our orders and made sure we were very happy. The food was so good I couldn't believe it. Give this guy some of your money, you won't be disappointed.

“Best on the island!!!!!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

It has been a year since we dined there and we could not wait to go back. The avocado salad was as good as I remembered (maybe better) Our friend Brad got Sergio's Lobster and he could not say enough about it. My husband and our friend Lisa got the tuna tartar and she said it was as good as Bobby Flays in his restaurant in Atlantic City. I can't believe we had room for the pineapple desert and it was nectar of the gods. Loved the combination of hot pineapple over cold ice cream and presentation.....perfect!!! The whole meal was exceptional and the atmosphere was what it should be when dining out, "SPECIAL!!!". I wish we had a Limon restaurant here in Pottstown. Sergio your food is wonderful!!! Thank you again for the best dining on the island! :)

“Wish I could give more stars! Great vegetarian dishes!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

My husband and I have been to Isla for our vacation every year for 5 years. This past January we were happy to see a new restaurant in La Gloria. We are both vegetarians and were pleased to see that there were several vegetarian options on the regular menu. Our first dinner there we did not have reservations and it was apparent that there was a large party that were being served in the patio area the first night we visited. It took a little while for service but we didn't care because we were on vacation and once the food came we totally forgot about ANY wait! We shared a large fresh salad and then had the Hibiscus tacos - so delicious and all ingredients were so fresh and flavorful. Even the food presentation is very professional as well. Sergio has done an outstanding job creating a professional chef's kitchen and upscale interior ambiance in his new space. We left that evening with lots of great new food memories. We also returned a week later for another dinner. That night I think we were only one of a couple of tables dining and Sergio was nothing but the most welcoming host. He joined us at our table and we chatted while dining for at least 2 hours. Each and every dish we ate was exceptionally delicious and full of fresh local ingredients. We cannot wait to return again next year! Thank you!

“An elegant and very friendly restaurant”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful, from the food to the staff. The restaurant is inside/outside so you are very comfortable either way. The food is prepared by talented chefs. The owners are often walking around, very welcoming!
