We visit Chez Isa whenever we can even if we only have time for a quick coffee. Well worth a visit if you are in... More

We were there for the fete weekend, fantastic!! Saturday evening was a hog roast, 3 courses for 13€ and the 'hog' was excellent. In spite of there being over 140 people there, it all went superbly, everyone getting served in a timely manner and then, to finish off the evening, free musical entertainment. Sunday was busy, with a vide grenier... More

We joined our hosts from Weir Cottage for a Pizza night here to watch Scotland v France in the recent Rugby World Cup warm up games. I have never had such a warm, hospitable welcome, fantastic hosts - well worth a visit!

Isa is totally dedicated to making a difference in Balledent. If anyone can do it, she can. And she and Jean-Pierre can cook and organise a good party! Highly recommended.

We went to Chez Isa for the special St Valentines Dinner. The restaurant has understandably become very popular and was oversubscribed on the night. The owners had gone to much trouble suitably decorating the room and tables and we were very impressed. The four course meal was delicious and the whole evening was excellent. A really impressive first visit, the... More

Inside Isa is waiting with a warm welcome,... More
