“upstairs restaurant with views over the bay.”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We visited just before 5pm and took advantage of the senior menu with smaller portions for £8.If the food we had was a smaller portion I can't imagine the normal size.Very pleasant service.Good atmosphere,music not intrusive. The stairs up to the restaurant area proved a bit of a challenge to our two 80 years plus companions. Booking is a must to get a window seat with a view.

Had 2 good meals here during our stay. The staff were friendly and efficient, prices reasonable and the food good. Definitely worth a visit but best book at weekends.

“modern restaurant”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Good service excelent steak and a very good burger
No complaints,
A little commercial a little over priced but we enjoyed it .
Birthday partys in a little loud not the type of restaurant for a quiet dinner.
Booking looks essential.
Will I visit again yes if the harbour lights round the corner is full.

“Not as good as recommended! :-(”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Friends and colleagues had raved about Jaks and how good the steaks were, so we gave it a chance.
Upstairs room was cold and I ended up sitting in my jacket; Staff were not very attentive and we had to ask for one of our drinks twice (and wait 20 mins) before it arrived; and my steak as definitely not medium / rare! :-(

The starters were brilliant / tasty, but the steaks were the thing we were looking forward to the most and were so disappointed.

Shame really, as we had been told brilliant things.

“Mediocre at Best”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Jak's has recently gone through a refit, and everything since has become mediocre. Upstairs restaurant is cold and sterile, and the food seemed a disappointment to previous visits

There was a fire there last Wednesday 16th April 2014 and will be closed for the next two weeks at least.
