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... More

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... More

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... More

My friend reserved a certain table on the water. When the 6 of us arrived at 7;20 for our table it was occupied by another party. We reluctantly took another option and sat down. To make a long story shorter. Service was terrible. 2 of the people in our party have a food allergy. We had a very difficult time... More

Wonderful experience! I had an excellent mani-mahi dish, large portion and well-prepared. My wife had stuffed chile and loved it. The restaurant is very well appointed, clean, and in a great location. The service is very good. Great value and strongly recommended.

If you like Mac & Cheese, I think they have the best! I've eaten here several times. I ALWAYS get the Mac & Cheese, others in my parties have tried other meals and there have been some misses, but overall, tasty meals.

A bit of a splurge for the area, but excellent food. On the lagoon. Nice ambiance. American style steaks. Great fish.
