Had an excellent anniversary meal here and would recommend, only advice I would give is that mussels are very small in comparison to other restaurants I have eaten them in.

Very friendly and efficient restaurant. The food was freshly cooked and service was quick even when the restaurant was busy. Meals from the set menu were very good value and there was a nice choice of wines. Would recommend this restaurant in Porthcawl.

Just average. Dated and a little boring concept . Staff lovely . Food dated but edible. Decor needs a facelift. Just average

My partner and I decided at short notice to go out for dinner. As Isabellas is reasonably close we decided it would be ideal. Service was prompt, food was hot and tasty and plentiful. Wine chilled to perfection. No rush to eat and leave the...More
