I like to go to Jar bar because there you can get the best coctails in Douglas.On Fridays and Saturdays there is a live music.The bar staff is friendly and the athmosphere is very nice.Never tryed the food.

Avoid. You can get better previously-frozen food selection at the local petrol station's hot bar and get a map. We were there for the Isle of Man TT. All descent restaurant's in Douglas are booked solid this week of racing. We were able to walk in at 8pm and immediately get a table. A bad sign. A couple rounds a... More

Ive just returned from a great week in the IOM TT races. This is the first thing i wanted to do upon my return before anyone else subjects themselves to the appauling service and over priced snack (supposed to be a main meal) not to mention the very large polish idiot (bully) with his aggresive attitude and awful table manner....

Just a so so meal here. Drinks were just ok. Service is not so great. Food is ok. You're better off looking for something else.

Firstly I was annoyed I was unable to book at my preferred time only to find many empty tables throughout the time I was there. The service was good, the drinks were fine but the food was very disappointing. I ordered a lime,chicken and... More

Ate here in March 2014 with husband for our anniversary. The food was fantastic. Everything we are was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. We had a cocktail before we ate which was also superb. Service was great, attentive, friendly and welcoming a great experience. The only downside was the fact that we were the only diners, and atmosphere was... More

We ate downstairs at the bar and grill and was impressed with the food at the high end of normal prices. Staff were friendly and it was a nice atmosphere
