Amazing food, top quality service. Will be back again
Great location with an exceptional view of the lake. Staff are very attentive and helpful and food is delicious 😋
Came here for a Saturday dinner. Food was good, ambiance was nice (even if it was raining) and service was great.
Keep up the goor work, guys xx
Excellent food, excellent service and excellent choice of wines, champagne and beer. Highly recommend!!!
An outstanding restaurant- we couldn’t fault the service, food or setting. Can’t wait to go back for another 5 star experience! Absolutely recommended.
Very relaxing ambience, excellent service, great food, and a million dollar view over the lake.
What a fantastic venue. We loved our meal and were so lucky that we were able to sit and enjoy our evening watching the lightning and listening to the thunder rolling around while we enjoyed wonderful food and drink. It is certainly on our list for a visit every time we go to Forster from now on.
Best place to eat in Forster !
Our wedding anniversary
I love this place so much ! Food and service are outstanding. Can’t fault it. Incredible!! Wine list is great too !
Second time at Isola Riva. Food great and the much improved decor sets the scene. Relaxing background music, fabulous setting, attentive staff. Nice to finally find a sophisticated but unpretentious eatery in Forster with a world class view. Forster is coming of age!!!
What a great new find in Forster. Beautiful location and lovely food. Share plates mean you can sample a range of dishes. We will certainly be back again and again.
What a great find. The perfect place to celebrate my wifes birthday with a sunny Sunday afternoon lunch by the water. The service was first class. The menu is small but quality. Our mains were simple but so good. (Prawn Linguine and Kingfish Brusiate.) We only ordered one desert but another turned up on the house. Both amazing. And as a self confessed coffee snob, I’d come back just for that. See you next time.
We were visiting Forster and lunched at Isola Riva for the first time. We were pleasantly suprised by both the standard of food and service. We enjoyed all of our dishes which were nicely presented using fresh ingredients. All the staff we dealt with were friendly, helpful and courteous.
We would happily recommend Isolo Riva and look forward to returning one day.
Fantastic restaurant with a great menu. The staff are extremely friendly and the view does not get old.
These guys have got everything right. Warm welcome, excellent service, great view and delicious food.
The food, drinks, service and ambiance is always beyond perfect!
Favourite place to go in town
A beautiful lunch. Only hindered by extreme wind channeling across the waterfront seats for couples. Food perfect. Wine perfect.
My last 2 mouthfuls of delicious wine was removed by the waitress, when I left the table. Upon paying, I mentioned this to the waiter. He took great offence at the complaint, arguing that my glass was definitely empty, even though he wasn't the one who took it (how did he know?). I did not want another glass, or less payment. I merely wanted an apology for clearing the table so promptly - taking my glass when there was food on my plate uneaten. I clearly was not finished. But no apology was given; instead I was told I was a liar. I WILL NOT be recommending Isola Riva to my friends. I have loved dining here previously, mainly for the food and the setting; but it has not ever been a friendly place to eat. Now it is off my list of favourite restuarants in Forster.
What a wonderful Restaurant in beautiful Forster. Everything was just awesome. Food, service, view, Isola Riva has it all.
Great lunch and service. A little expensive for the wine but overall a fantastic birthday lunch for our mum
With due respect, waitress whilst very pleasant and helpful, was a little hesitant about the way in which plates were removed and replaced.
Prawns, very nice, but difficult to extract with knife and fork. Fingers were necessary.
Oysters superb...crumbed prosciutto..a winner.
Also good...the arancini and the grilled aparagus.
Chips flavoursome and retained their heat.
Have visited before and will def be there again.
The chairs are comfy...not so sure about the bench seating. Tables spaced well.
Absolutely loved our evening there. Location, staff and food were all 5 star!
Good for a cocktail. Same price as a glass of wine.
Was off put by the rubber texture of the clams and off taste that seemed to be apparent in the King prawns which where not value for money and served with shells on which caused for a big mess and poor experience.
Wait staffed had described a meal as a completely different menu item.
The wrong order was brought to the table and wait staff responded poorly.
Overall I would go again for the basic menu items (chips and dips) and the view.
Had a fabulous tapas lunch. Thank you for a great birthday celebration
Very nice place for a meal and to relax with friends and family. Thank you.
Isola Riva is our favourite place to dine in Forster. Such a great vibe right on the water’s edge with delicious food and very professional staff. Highly recommended!
Our waiter was absolutely lovely, the food was amazing and the ambiance was incredible
Aeroguard supplied for sand flies
Put us in a beautiful spot on the deck
Would be great if they could instal lights on the wharf in the water so you could see fish at night
10/10 already recommended
Great find for lunch absolute water front . Food and service great with no fuss. We will be back .
The food and service was excellent.
We will be back
Mother’s 85th Birthday, table for 3. We had to wait outside as we were a bit early, so some outside seating would be good as mum found the uphill walk a bit tricky.
Lovely table by the window, lovely ambience, music not too loud, plenty of room - great observance of Covid safety practice. All guests nicely dressed for the experience.
Very friendly and professional service, not over-the-top but food timely, not pressed to hurry up.
Four dishes were plenty for the three of us, fresh and delicious - oysters prosciutto crumb, grilled prawns, felafel, special burrata salad.
The team came out with the desserts and sang Happy Birthday, Mother was delighted and it ensure a food coma for the rest of the day.
Thank you for making her day so special.
Try the Rome chamomile cocktail! Such an amazing spot. Love the shared plates idea. Food was excellent.
Absolutely love love love this place
My most favourite restaurant in Forster .. Highly highly recommend it
Great spot good food good wine great venue very relaxing
We had a lovely meal. Restaurant looks great but please get rid of the fake grass!
Absolutely beautiful location, perfect for a cocktail and antipasto platter. Staff are always lovely and food is delicious.
Great share food and lovely views
Excellent cocktail menu and service was very good . Really enjoyed our lunch.
Only let down was that it was too windy where we were situated. When we asked to move they said it was fully booked. However during the time we were there it was only at about 50% of tables used. We felt they didn’t try hard enough to make our stay more comfortable.
We ate here for a very special anniversary and loved everything about it
Best restaurant that we have found in Forster. Right on the lake, great service and great food.
