At Insula we chose to use the first come, first served method.

This helps to keep the flow of the dining room during busier times, should the restaurant be full

when you stop in we are happy to take your number and call you when a table opens or have sit at the bar area.

We look forward to having you as a guest at our table soon.

Thank you for your understanding, Dan and Sarah
