Chose the restaurant based on reviews on Tripadvisor. Don't be put off by the restaurant's exterior, which in my view is grim. Once through the door and seated at a table within or close to the balcony it is transformed by the view of the...More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely trip advisor review. However, are you sure you were at TJ's? We don't actually have lasagne on the menu! But please visit us soon to experience our very varied and mouthwatering menu. Heather

Summer holidays start on Monday. Best thing to do is to phone TJ's and ask them.

Description
We pride ourselves on having a unique combination of menus; with our Tapas style menu consisting of over 25 smaller portion dishes that can be ordered individually as a starter or in multiples to provide a complete meal - a very social and interactive style of dining, promoting lively debate between couples, families or groups until a compromise is reached concluding everyones preferences. This runs alongside our 'Chefs One Plates Menu', vastly different in content, these main courses always including a succulent Steak. These frequently changing dishes focus on our chef's culinary and artistic skills creating thoughtfully flavoured and beautifully presented meals. Lovingly prepared to order, using, as often as possible locally sourced fresh seafood, meat and vegetables.
