We've had dinner at Isobel's and everything was perfect: from starter to main to desert. Just delicious. Service was very attentive. Couldn't fault anything! Well done!

Arrived early for lunch. Staff very cooperative. Had platter for four which was very good. Nice courtyard - quiet and away from road - which really helped ambience. Excellent service

Very nice surroundings and great food. Dinning room staff went out of their way to give us a special dinning experience. Food was gourmet standard and reasonable price. Excellent to find they do not add on a surchage for public holidays. Good on you Isobel's.

We were staying in the hotel, and this restaurant is an absolute gem - the menu is good and varied. The selection of food and drink should suit almost anybody - well worth a visit.
