So I had one of each of the small starters, that’s a sublime anchovy, a fabulous tuna tartar, a great prawn and egg dish, a great croquet and a really great foie and pine nut dish. All awesome and cheap! Then a great hake dish which has so fresh with perfectly balanced garlic and potato. Finished with crema catalana, accompanied by a good priorat. What’s not to like?

It was next door to my hotel, or I would never have gone in all honesty, but it is actually worth finding out.

It is in a dead area, so nothing to do after, but the food is so good it is worth seeking out.

This restaurant came recommended to us by a friend. We stayed in Example and this restaurant required a cab ride to get there. But it was well worth it. The food was amazing and the staff was super friendly. It was actually quite nice to get a break from the super crowded part of town and have some peace and quiet.
The owner and his family are there and take great care of you. The seafood we had just came in hours before we ate.
Highly recommend you try this restaurant.

Let's start with the positives. Desserts were good. The Catalan cream, the Spanish version of creme brûlée was pleasant, as was the Catalan cream ice cream. Staff was friendly and service was good. The appetizers and mains on the other hand, lacked fullness and character. Spicing was weak and not very interesting. The staff recommended the seafood choices that we ordered as their specialities. It frankly tasted like home cooking. The red tuna stew I had desperately needed spicing up. Oddly, the smallest steak they offered for sharing was 1.2kg in size; way too much red meat, especially following appetizers. BTW the mains and appetizers were dull. Please buy some spices and squeeze the occasional lemon. Watch for the up-sell too. A glass of Cava resulted in having a 1/2 bottle delivered, telling me it was better quality. It was also more aperitif than I wanted.

Booked this restaurant for an evening after visiting Sagrada Familia on the strength of Tripadviser reviews and the location close to beach (not that we bothered going). It is a family run business with an owner very keen to discuss the menu especially seafood. Rightly so, as 2 of us ordered baked hake which was delicious. I had the steak on stone, perfectly tender served with potato and peppers. We were brought some tasty complementary starter - pa Amb oli, also very nice. All in all an excellent meal. My only tiny gripe was the distinct "pushing" of a €28,00 White Rieseling which was perfectly nice but I prefer to be given the wine list at the beginning, and certainly did not expect it to be removed after requesting it for consideration for the second bottle. Ignoring this tiny moan it was overall a great experience and would have no problem visiting again.

A wonderful family run restaurant. We live near by the restaurant and tried dozens of restaurants in our neighborhood but Casa Isabel beats them all.
The service is very friendly and the food is excellent. Their seafood is super fresh and beautiful prepared.
Next time we will try their meat.
