It was our final evening in Jolly Harbour and we were thrilled to get a great meal and great service. The shrimp and scallops were cooked to perfection... and the delicate seasoning of their Bombay pasta was perfect.

A lovely Italian in jolly harbour. Enjoyed our meal immensely. Crispy fried shrimps and a delicious pizza with Stilton cheese and walnuts. A bottle of the house champagne. Reasonably priced. The staff very friendly. Will be returning.

The steak was gorgeous however as I had the shrimp starter as well i couldn't finish all my steak, so starve yourself before you go. Absolutely no... More

It was great to return to this restaurant after a two year break. Very surprised that the owners recognised us. The food was superb and I really enjoyed the house red. We will be definitely eating here again, and again cannot recommend it enough.

We're staying at the Sugar Ridge resort, and although the accommodations are nice, we found ourselves quickly wanting some variety. I grabbed a Walnut and Gorgonzola pizza for us, and a cheese for the tike. Both were fantastic, and I saw some other good vegetarian choices on the menu, so chances are good we will be back. I only wish... More

We just returned from a 2 week holiday in Jolly Harbor and dined here four or five times. Adrian and Mark do quite a wonderful job of serving wonderful meals of a wide variety with style and panache for a very reasonable price. The chef has been with them since they opened 15 years ago and is quite talented and... More

We went here for our last night in Jolly Harbour. This restaurant sits right on the front, amazing views with equally amazing food. Our party was 4 adults. I had the pork tenderloin in madeira sauce so tender and tasty. Parmigiana chicken again very tender and tasty. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
