We didn't have lunch exactly, the restaurant portion of Isla was not yet open. But we did have drinks and the best guacamole that we've had in Vegas. The bar staff were very friendly and happy to recommend from the appetizer menu items they considered to be the best. They were right, the guac rocked! My husband tried one of the tequila's from their extensive lsit- he enjoyed it. I did not, but then again, I don't like to sip tequila. The bar area itself is very nice...dark, classy, with seating at the bar and at lower tables lining the bar entrance. It was pretty empty when we arrived (ok, it was only 11 a.m.) but by the time we left, numerous couples, older familes were in the bar area having drinks and waiting for the main restaurant to open. The staff was so friendly, one even pointed out to me that I should not casually hang my purse off of my chair, lest I wanted it stolen. She had a good point, and I appreciated the tip.
