“Quality and good service at a reasonable price”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We have now become frequent visitors to the Isle of Man and naturally we are always on the lookout for good restaurants. We discovered the Isola which I do not hesitate to recommend. Service was very good and the food was excellent. No fancy prices either which is always a plus in The Isle. We were recommended a wine with our food called The Waxed Bat which was a bit scary considering the name. However it turned out to be one of the best Shiraz we had ever tasted. We shall certainly be returning to this restaurant on our next visit.

“Great spot”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The food was very good and fair value. The staff were friendly and the ambience of the restaurant is such that you could feel to be in Italy . A nice evening .

“Great food, staff rather noisy”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Looking through the windows this restaurant looks tiny but it is a real rabbit warren inside.The food was brilliant but I didn't like all the shouting between the kitchen and staff.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

Wasn't impressed. Couscous mainmeal had big portion of salad on plate-strange combo? Main meals on our table came with large salad portions as did mains on table next to us, when hot vegtable selection would have been preferable. Seemed like salad thrown on every hot meal, unless we made unlucky choices. Shame as our starters also had a big salad included. However, our queenie/bacon/salad starter was great and garlic/cheese bread was tasty too. Disappointing as found meal mediocre and over priced. On previous visits had found food fantastic, but quality on this visit was average and has put us off any further visits.
