My mum lives in the Isle of Man and I always like to go to the garrison when I visit. The staff are always friendly and the food is brilliant :)

“Overall good experience apart from the attitude of staff”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Family meal out, children's menu great and the homemade fish fingers were great. Avocado and crab salad lovely. Battered chicken again good, however pork satay was awful. Pork did not smell good and both my husband and I left it due to both the smell and taste. Brought this to the lady serving us who immediately said that this could not be as the pork was delivered that day and hat we would be refunded the amount £6.00. Thinking that was the end of it, we continued with our meal and conversation when a butchers invoice brought by same lady serving us was waved in front of me drawing my attention to the pork order, never come across anything like this. She then insisted because she was showing me an invoice this was fresh. This definitely spoilt the occassion and found this behaviour and attitude ridiculous. Spoilt an otherwise family meal out.

“Food Paradise found on a small proud Island”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

After touring the lovely Cregnaesh Village that time has not touched, our tour bus brought us to the front door of Castle Rushen. We had talked with our driver and he spoke about a Tapas Restaurant that was amazing. We decided to skip the lines into the Castle and explore this suggestion and what we found was out of this world. Both owners greeted and directed us to our own private dining venue atop of their cafe'. I say private since everyone was dining inside and we wanted to take in the fresh air. The menu is well thought out and prepared with perfection. The staff made us feel like they were waiting for us to enhance our vacation. We were amazed with the Tapas menu of Mixed Wild Mushrooms, Spicy Sweet Potato Patatas with Chicken and Cheese Topping and the Scallops in Provencal Sauce. Please take it from us, check out this food paradise.

“Castletowns Best”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Food was one of the best. Recommended to numerous people that asked for somewhere nice to eat. Was well cooked without being overdone, the batter on the fish was just right, plenty of fish without too much batter to spoil the meal. Steaks done to perfection. Staff very friendly and courteous. Definitely a place to visit more than once.
