Had never eaten here before but had always heard good things so booked a table for the significant other and I for Valentines night. To use her words: "Best meal I can ever remember having."

This restaurant serves really delicious food. The prawn starter was really good as was its large size, followed that with the sirloin steak and I had a very nice meal indeed. The service was very good too in this atmospheric restaurant. Will certainly be back!

We have visited many times and Isaacs has a good reputation. Prawns in provencale sauce good. For the seafood chowder, please revert to more fish and less potatoe cubes.Some staff untrained.
