Description: We are delighted to add a fourth location to our family of restaurants. Previously known as Copperfields Edwardian Restaurant, our new central Douglas location is a perfect mix of old world charm and great seasonal food. Already famous throughout the island, you’ll discover everything you love about Harbour Lights right in the centre of Douglas. Open daily from 10am for Breakfast, we also offer our famous comfort classics menu throughout the day featuring the very best of local produce. Sample our welsh rarebit with smoked salmon or huge beer battered cod served with seasonal vegetables and potato of the day. Alternatively take a break from shopping and pop in for a quick coffee and cake, served all day.Our entire team (many of whom will be familiar) look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful new location.

“Time Travel IOM”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Arrived at 7.58pm on a Saturday night in the middle of the 'capitol' of Isle of Man. "Sitdown quickly, we're about to close." What a great attitude from the teenage staff - they don't set the opening times. Felt like 1975 - prawn cocktail was on the menu. Sadly no french onion soup, duck a l'orange, nor Black Forest gateaux.

“Quirky...Step back in time with service and quality food.”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We are 4 Aussies traveling the UK who went on recommendation from our B&B Owner . Initially it seems a bit "dowdy" and old fashioned. But the service is old fashioned... the staff are extremely polite and helpful, and the food was delicious.The meals were a sensible portion size. After 6 weeks of traveling it was totally different experience to most restaurants and pubs encountered.

“Gorgeous food, Great service and Cosy Atmosphere”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

I have visited the Isle many times before, but only just discovered this little gem on my last visit!
The staff are so lovely and polite. Service is prompt! Food is in generous portions.
We did not wait long for the food to be served. All meals are very well presented.
The setting is very quaint, and so warm and welcoming. Prices are very reasonable indeed!!
We had our breakfast and tea here, as the food was so delicious!! We had a hot chocolate one evening and it came served on a tray with cream served in a small triangle shaped dish and three delicious marshmellows stacked together, so appetizing!!
If you need a highchair, one can be provided. There are no steps entering onto this establishment, but there are a few to climb to upstairs toilets, About 9 steps, but it is not too steep. There is also an Edwardian parlor downstairs. Again just a few steps, but worth it, if you can manage them.
You can book the table by the window also if you wish. We had a very generous 3 course meal and the total cost including two drinks cost approximately £65.00 for two. It was worth every penny!! Whilst eating in the restaurant, you could overhear many people giving compliments to the chef! There are other Harbour Light Cafe & Restaurants in Peel, Ramsey, and Port St Mary. Highly recommended. I look forward to my next visit!!
