“Nice location but food was just OK”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is just by the sea and not far from the port so a perfect location with a splendid view. Portions are quite large so you may consider sharing the starter (we ordered the fried mozzarella and the carpaccio but we could have easily done with just the mozzarella). Food was OK, and just that. My fish was slightly over-cooked but the Vasca sauce was good. Very good wine list

“Un plaisir pour les yeux**A pleasure for the sight”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

In fact we were heading to the restaurant next door. But this place gave us a warmer and more welcoming impression. The set up looked professional. The staff very polite and friendly.
Wine card exquisite and reasonable prices. Food served was inviting as beautifully decorated... See pix. Can only recommend for a nice dinner with a fabtastic view.

“Very good restaurant, with a nice view”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

It was one of the very few restaurants open on a monday night in november, but we were happy it was open.
All the plates were delicious: the aubergine a parmeggiana, the local fish (brotola) with shrimp, the calamar ink fettuccini. And the price was ok for a Punta Del Este restaurant.
The big window allows you to see the river and the small boats

“Great Setting”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We went for lunch at Isidora. The food quality was very good just watch the portions as they are quite large. I ordered the mix grill and it was huge. Definitely worth ordering but make sure you share it with someone.

The service was adequate but definitely not exceptional. They set the table up to be fully served (I.E. put the water, wine, beer, etc out of reach so they take care of topping you up.), but they never showed up to top anything up. I'm sure the waiter spoke english but did not want to at our table...

“Delicioso!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We went here twice during our vacation: once with a group of 7 and once a romantic dinner for 2. Food, wine, ambiance, service & view were great. In my opinion the menu is not "kid friendly" with the exception of dessert. Other than that it was a great visit :)
