Ambience was good, service was outstanding. Food was good but not enough for the price. grilled zucchini is only three halves so one and a half zucchini on a plate for $14! Flatbread was oily. 4 mushrooms for $15! I’m afraid the restaurant won’t be there for long if portion sizes stay this way. Perfect setting on the lake. Eat before you go to dinner.
The service was spot on, not to overbearing or rushed.
Great suggestions for dishes.
The food is good, fresh produce done well with talent and flair.
Finally another decent food experience is available in the area.
Great ambience on the water with views.
Beautiful food, great service, magical spot.
Recommend taking sunglasses if it's late in the day.
Fabulous atmosphere & beautiful setting. BYO would be a massive advantage & larger portions on platters for the price would be great!
We really enjoyed their menu...
We had four tasting plates (prawns, calamari, beef and meatballs ) great flat bread and dips ...and a chocolate mousse dessert....., a lovely night the restaurant is on Forster Keys ... a great position ....,
The staff were friendly and helpful with
the menu choices.
Lovely position and great ambiance and service.
Maybe a tad overpriced but we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
Love the linen napkins
Amazing location. Great vibe. Yummy food. Small portion sizes.
Would recommend for afternoon nibbles and a drink but not for dinner.
The setting was relaxed and the view over the lake was calming. The menu was varied and offered good shared dishes . The mussels in a tomato sauce were delicious though a more thick crusty type bread would have been preferred . We enjoyed the dinner and wines and definitely would return again soon . We were well looked after by Ben .
The staff were very professional and helpful. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. Great value for money and a great addition to Forster.
We ended up with 3 people only
Cocktails were good But $18????
Left feeling hungry as the portions were minimal
Fantastic service, excellent food and amazing spot on the lake! Great place to enjoy a meal & a drink to watch the sunset.
Beautiful relaxed setting. Great way to spend a leisurely relaxed afternoon. We will be making this a regular destination.
Food was good but needs a bit more quantity for main meals
Such a relaxing place to be.
We moved from our high table to the lounge as it was too hot in the sun.
Food is fresh and tasty (love the steak). Staff are delightful.
We ordered two of the large platters plus the goats cheese entree and chocolate mousse and that left us comfortably full.
Can’t wait to take our visitors there
Lovely outlook over the lake - restaurant had a nice feel about it
Great afternoon/night at Isola Riva. Although we were sitting outside, the weather changed dramatically to Thunder, Lightning and Heavy Rain but the staff moved us inside with a minimum of fuss and we had the Best Service, Food and Drinks. Third time here, will be The place to go to in Forster.
Expensive, not generous food. Average service. Would try it again for drinks and snack, but not main meal.
Share plates sensible, as was service. Great venue and menu.
Had a nice time food was good staff attentive atmosphere calming will return again recommend you visit .
Great all round experience. highly recommended. Cheers
Great service and delicious food. Awesome atmosphere
Beautiful spot. Great food.
Lovely staff. Highly recommend.
Beautiful location to enjoy delicious food and fine wine.
Food delicious, the serving are a bit small on the small side.
We asked are lovely waitress to offer her suggestions and were not disappointed.
Service is outstanding.
Great service and delicious food.
Waitresses were very helpful
This was our first visit to Isola Riva and loved every minute. The good was tasty and the atmosphere spectacular. This restaurant will become a favourite with many visits to come.
The quality of the food was way below par considering the prices charged and The servings were far too small for the price.
The beer selection was totally inadequate.
Best dinner location in Forster. Great staff and a great menu.
Great location on the lake; beautiful, simple decor; excellent music; attentive, non intrusive friendly staff; small but more than adequate drinks and food list; delicious food for sharing, great presentation. A new restaurant that has us hooked already. Thank You.
Beautiful new spot to go to in Forster for that special occasion.
The food was really tasty and the desert was to die for. We were sharing all the food and the only thing I would say is that the portions were extremely small eg: 2 prawns on the large platter etc etc. I will go there again with my husband and just order a dish each instead of trying to share platters and dishes with a group of people as we had to keep ordering more to try and satisfy our appetites.
Lovely tasting menu. Beautiful spot to enjoy a cocktail & a little plate to share
The staff were friendly and attentive.
It’s a lovely change for Forster to have something so different!
We really enjoyed our evening
Food did not live up to the menu
Expensive for what is on the plate.
Great experience. Very relaxed vibe - a perfect place to enjoy great flavours, friendly staff and superb atmosphere sphere.
Beautiful food but extremely expensive for the ‘large platter’ and I was left hungry needing to order more food. I won’t return for dinner. Happy to come for wine and a snack.
We so wanted this restaurant to be amazing...the location is fantastic, the staff were great, the ambience is 10 out of 10. The food was really disappointing and very overpriced for what you got. For $47 we got 2 overcooked prawns, 6 pieces of calamari that had zero seasoning, 2 slices of zucchini and 2 very small about 3cm in diameter pots of hummus and tzatziki. We had a table of 6 and we were all very disappointed with the food. I really hope they listen to feedback and take stock of the menu. I am happy to pay top dollar for fine dining..but this was not fine dining. I wish you luck, I don't usually leave feedback, but I really hope these guys can make a go of it. I think to last long term they will need to overhaul their menu.
Awesome location, hard to beat. If you keep in mind you won’t be full in the belly or wallet when u leave, you won’t be disappointed and you can just enjoy the amazing location and lovely friendly staff😊
This is a good location with a pretty outlook. The service was attentive and our food was served promptly. We enjoyed what we ate.
We ordered the two share plates, the pasta special and the grilled fish crostini between the four of us and felt all the dishes could be a little more generous. We left mostly satisfied but could have eaten more especially considering the fact we had met for a drink and light snack prior to going to dinner. The Roma platter had just one mushroom (between four) and the Amalfi platter just two prawns. Disappointingly most of the menu which is not on the share plates is repeated in the other part of the menu so it is difficult to order without repeating dishes.
Overall an enjoyable experience but.....
Would we recommend to a friend? Yes, mostly for the view but I would warn them, as we were warned to order up.
My wife and I enjoyed our first visit, marred only by the noisy visitors on a group table nearby. Beautiful sunset over Wallis Lake, Breckenridge Channel and Leon Island. The food was fresh and tasty and the Amalfi Large Plate was sufficient for two light eaters. Local brews from Coastal Brewing on tap and a small selection of good wines are available. Service was excellent
Lovely ambience, lovely service, lovely food.
The food came out quick and was absolutely delicious.
