This is a fine dining restaurant which serves fresh fish and sea-food. The service is at high standards, and the fish of the day cooked in salt is one of the best! Also beef tartar is very tasty and it is prepared in front of you, so you can choose what would you like to be in order to have... More

We enjoyed good food and music, relaxing atmosphere at our friend's anniversary. We started with raw fish and oysters, continued with pasta with white truffles - Isoletta's signatures - and ended with excellent Wagyu. Of corse, it took about 6 hours to have also the cake. Still, it was an anniversary 😀🍾.

Excellent dinner at this open air restaurant in one of the swankiest districts of Bucharest next to the lake. Mix of dishes thought excellent was not fine dining in spite of the tag of being one of the best restaurants in Bucharest. Location makes it and service also excellent. House dessert to die for.

Worst service I have ever experienced. Extremely impolite. The waiters were literally sitting and making fun of customers and been very impolite to us. Definitely a no!

I had a business lunch there. I believe is a very good fish restaurant, maybe the best in Bucharest. Situated on the border of Herastrau lake, the restaurant offers a nice terrace. The waiters are very nice and they are able to give good recommendations concerning the wines. I prices are high, but it worth.

Had a business dinner here with two colleagues. The location is great, being in one of the best and biggest parks in Bucharest. We sat outside and had fresh fish baked in salt. The cover service is very good - fresh bread, oil, vinegar and several coloured salts (why!?). A good placed for business dinner, I am not so sure... More

I had another delicious lunch on a Sunday in June 2016. I'm sure everyone who is living in Bucharest heard or tried this restaurant,but now I'm addressing to the turists. You have to try it! It's a must!

Description
The restaurant is typically Italian and proposes a vast culinary offer, but we are best recognized for our daily fresh fish offer. Thanks to the contacts that Mr. Viorel Nica has made, twice a week we receive fresh fish imported directly, without intermediary from the Port of Mazzara Del Vallo in Sicily. Currently Ristorante Isoletta is considered to be the best fish and sea food kitchen in Bucharest.
