It was a tad pricey, but food, wine and view were sublime. The duck starter and Sea Bream main were cooked to perfection, as were the vegetables, and a crisp white Rioja was a delicious accompaniment.
Very highly recommended.

We had a great window seat with lovely sea views. The taxing menu was excellent, innovative and varied and the service great. When busy the acoustics are such it can get a little noisy due to the hard surfaces but will to stop us from returning.

This restaurant is set right on the water and on a sunny evening I can't think of many better spots to spend a few hours. My starter of oysters were fresh and tasty with an excellent shallot vinegar. The sea bream main course was delicate and well cooked. A side dish of bacon, avocado and pine nut salad was very good but didn't stop me tucking in to my companion's amazing potato dauphinois.
And despite being wholly unnecessary a raspberry millefeuille and espresso martini were both delicious.
Service is efficient and friendly.
I will be returning to try the tasting menu at some point and will be aiming to remember to book early enough to secure a window table.

Went here for dinner as a special treat and we were not disappointed. The food looked and tasted fantastic and the service was amazing. The sea views from the restaurant are absolutely fabulous. It is by no means a cheap restaurant but well worth the money, Definitely a case of get what you pay for!

My wife booked this for birthday surprise, we have been meaning to go for some time, so it was with great relish that she drove me here for our lunch.
The car park is very limited when busy, but they are so accommodating, we just double parked, and gave our keys to the manager, who would move it if someone wanted to get out...

The restaurant is very modern, huge glass windows facing the harbour, a really stunning location, and very very well managed and organised.
The staff are very friendly, nothing is to much trouble for them, your made extremely welcome, from start to finish, and at no stage of our 3 course meal, did we feel rushed or pressurised to move out, unlike some restaurants, where the staff are trying to get you out ASAP to get another group seated.
Simple things like, if the staff see any crumbs or spillage, its clean up as soon as that course is finished.

We are both big fish eaters, eaten it all over the world, and I can only say, that the jetty lived up to its reputation, the food was simply fantastic, cooked to perfection, not over cooked like some places, fish is meant to be a delicate meal, not well done to a crisp.

Well done to all, and especially the manager, who runs it like a well oiled machine, he's everywhere all the time, and loves to explain the tastes and types of food on the menu, as do all the staff, who all seem very passionate about the food and wines.
We will most certainly be going again, and recommend the Jetty to all our friends and family.
