Isla & Co. is an all day concept with a seasonal menu. They will have a full service menu that will include coffee, brunch, cocktails and dinner, mixing cuisine inspired by Australian coastal towns by day with the flair and flavors of Southeast Asia and the Mediterranean by night. This pairs perfectly withe beachy vibes that Isla & Co. will bring to Buckhead. Wanting to keep the land down under vibes going, Isla & Co. is designed with the expansive natural landscape.
This expansive space will seat up to 110 guests. The green tiled bar, a signature feature of the restaurant and the cozy outdoor patio space, will have guests transported right to the coast! All the coastal imagery throughout the restaurant and the abundance of natural light, will have you feeling like you are truly on the ultimate beach get away. Now on to the good stuff…the food!
