Excellent service from the staff from the minute I arrived until I left. Made adjustments not typically carried out which was I thought exceptional. Was here for lunch and with what I assume is a limited menu, I will for sure check them out for dinner 😊

Really enjoyed our visit. The staff are attentive but not in your face. Food was excellent as was the win. The tables are well spaced offering good room and the impression of space and privacy.

Between the four of us we each had different starters and mains and all were excellent.

Would highly recommend it and we will be back.

Had to wait for our table at the bar where no one came near us to ask if we wanted a drink. Toilets filthy. Waiter presumed to take the change as his tip even though it was 40e from a 165 bill. Never saw him again. Very disappointed.

Everything was good, except for my food portion sizes. The pasta was delicious, but the portion size was small especially given the cost of the dish. If the cost is over €20, the portion size should match the price.

This is wasps my first time to have brunch here. The menu options were great and the food was amazing. I highly recommend the pork belly eggs benedict.
It seems to be quite popular for families especially kids in buggies. So if you’ve been out the before.... that kind of noise may not be for everyone.
The service was great- fun and efficient

Dined in Isabelle’s on a Saturday evening for a friends leaving party, the waiter asked if we were celebrating to which we said that our friend is moving to Canada soon. After our main courses we were not sure if we wanted desserts and ordered 3 espresso martinis instead. During the drinks our waiter came over with a ‚best of luck’ plate and said ‚I know you didn’t order desserts but your friend is leaving’ and a little dessert on it which we thanked for, however when we got the bill we noticed there was a dessert charged for. Upon asking the waiter if it was a mistake he said that it was the plate we got (which we did not ask for) and that if quote ‚we really want’ he can take it off. Was a little bit annoying considering we had a nice evening, did not order desserts or a plate but got cocktails instead and then the waiter made a deal about taking it off. We started to wonder if we did order desserts would that have been an additional one? or why it was charged for in the first place? it is a nice gesture but to then have to pay for it is ridiculous in my opinion.

Hi Dagmara, Thank you for taking your time to leave review with us. We are delighted to see that you all enjoyed your time with us on such a special occasion.
