Food was ok, but the order was wrong several times, and we had to wait and wait and wait. We almost missed the lighthouse tour (which was worth it) as we had to wolf down our food in less than 10 minutes.We received food 50 minutes after ordering :-( The pricing was average, but the portion sizes were small.

What better place to sit and have a lovely meal and coffee than at the foot of a magnificent Lighthouse. Coffee is great and the cook is amazing. Menu is varied and she makes the most amazing cakes. Love it.

The bleakist of days to visit - windy and cold. But a great welcome from the cafe owner. Polite, humerous and friendly. Great food and coffee. A definite lunch stop over. Very rustic and good home cooked food.

A little out of the way but worth the ten minute drive from Portlands CBD is this quaint little cafe. The service was exceptional - very attentive and polite, the atmosphere comfy. The menu while not extensive had a sufficient range. We were there for lunch and my friend had a homemade beef and Guinness pie, another a panini and... More

My husband and I enjoyed a pleasant lunch here, approximately 1 month ago. The food quality and quantity was good, the service was good and the atmosphere was relaxed and tranquil. The scenery surrounding Isabella's is just exquisite, making this a must for anyone to come and visit.

A hidden gem which is a cosy and very homely. Steve provides great service and a limited but nice selection of snacks/meals to suit most palates.

Our hotel recommended that we visit the lighthouse and have lunch at the cafe. We were not disappointed. We had a lovely meal of corn fritters with smoked salmon accompanied by a glass of Cape Jaffa sav blanc followed by a great coffee and one of the best cakes, prune and toasted coconut, we have ever had. We would highly... More
