“Delicious Seafood / Great Service”

Isadora's Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 23, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Isadora's. The location is fantastic -- overlooking the water on the lagoon side. The servers were attentive and friendly. There was great live music (Doug Pettigrew and friends). The food was delicious! We'll definitely be back the next time we're in Barra.

Fellow hotel guests recommended Isadora's and specifically the Molcajete (sp?) which isn't on the menu but you just ask for it. It's basically a boiling stewy mixture served in a hot lava bowl. The basic ingredients are green, red, and yellow pepper strips, your choice of chicken, beef, or shrimp with a big handful of shredded cheese thrown in that melts in the stew. Sides are rice, soft tortillas and french bread slices. It was impressive to look at, that's for sure. As for the taste, for us it was just too salty. Thank goodness we shared one, no idea how anyone would finish one of those alone. We couldn't finish ours between the two of us. We also had a wedge salad with gorgonzola. Wedge salad is one of our favourites when done right with lots of blue cheese, whatever type it is. This wedge salad was a little sad, and a miss on the account of a less than stellar wedge of lettuce and a very watery dressing that may have been placed near the gorgonzola for a minute. The best thing about Isadora's was the view of the lagoon (full moon on the night we went) and the service. They are really attentive here, even opening the ladies room door for me. We didn't really love the food here but the service was quite stellar and saved them from a tanked review. The jury's out on whether this would be a redo if we were visit Barra again in the future. It's seemed on the higher end in comparison with other local eateries as far as price.

We enjoyed the 'lava' bowl which comes to the table boiling hot out of the oven in a pestal bowl. It can be a combination of seafood and meat, we had the mix. Delicious flavors in this dish. The service was excellent and sitting over the water looking out over the lagoob to Isla Navidad was wonderful. This is a must when you come to Barre de Navidad.

Very nice setting with friendly staff and wait service. Good variety on the menus.
You can sit outside by the water if you like. Have been ther twice. First time was awesome great food and service. Second time my fish was old so sent it back and they gave me something else no problem,a sign of good restaurant. We were a party of ten and everyone else was happy.

My husband and I had two dinners at Isadora's. Both were terrific. With a reserved table right down at the waterfront, how can you lose? The waiters were always so friendly and helpful. We especially liked the absolutely wonderful mac and cheese--not like mother made SO MUCH better with cheddar, manchego, and brie it was to die for!! Also very special and unique was the chile nadogo. We go to wonderful Barra de Navidad every year ans wonder why we never went here. VERY special and we will certainly return next February.
