This is a great people watching place as everyone is dressed very chic and all the tables are full. The menu is extensive and the food cooked... More

I had the beef tenderloin with a peppercorn cream sauce, and I would say that it's the best I've ever had! Excellent service in a candlelight dining environment. Top notch!

Pretty space, good menu, food delicious but very expensive. However it's worth it to go for a special evening. Be sure to make a reservation.

We always visit L'Isola when in St. Barth. The extensive Italian menu is excellent. This is one of a few restaurants in St. Barth that is entirely indoors, which is great if you're trying to avoid mosquitoes! I would say L'Isola is on the pricier side, but then again, you are in St. Barth where pricey is the norm.

I loved the staff. I may sound like a school girl, but they're handsome, kind and funny. The food is amazing! It's as good as food in Italy. The restaurant is chic and romantic. Must Go!!!
