The food in Isabel’s is hard to fault, if not impossible to fault. It’s a real foodie's paradise. Service is also excellent, as good as i’ve seen anywhere in dublin infact.
I didn’t give it 5 stars though for a couple of reasons:
- Atmosphere is a bit flat
- Menu is v restrictive- the nite we went there was Lamb, Pork or Scallops. I happen to like all 3 but i’d be slow to go here with lots of my friends who wouldn't be as adventurous as me.
- Portions are on the small side. You need side orders bringing each main over the €30 mark. Probably not great value although i do appreciate that the ingredients are of a v high quality.
All of that said, i will definitely be back, one of the nicest lamb dishes i’ve ever had! Fantastic wine list also, they clearly know a lot about wine (as well as great ingredients!) We had a bottle of the Delta NZ Pinot Noir, absolute liquid heaven! Well done Isabel's, i just hope the rest of dublin appreciate what you are trying to achieve, definitely a niche audience i'd imagine.
