Lunch menu is ok and is reasonably priced. Coffee is quite good but a bit inconsistent. The evening menu is nice but a bit like the same old same old. Overall a welcoming place.

My wife and I have been to JAC's three times for lunch now since it took over the space formerly occupied by Sizzle and Imbibe at Whangaparoa Plaza. Hopefully JAC's will be here to stay and make this space its own.

We've always found it easy to get a table with space for our baby stroller. Food has been mostly good; best so far was the Tindall's pizza, with just the right amount of chilli. Have tried the Beef & Blue burger but found it quite dry.

There are a few lunch specials for $12.50 but other than corn fritters (ok although I heard someone else raving about them) we've stuck to the main lunch menu.

This is a DB bar (owned partially by the Barworks who are part owners of Garrison at Sylvia Park) so expect lots Monteiths beverages. Several on tap. Unfortunately the prices are not all shown which always annoys me with menus. There is a good selection of quality wines, priced in line with premium venues.

Service has always been accommodating and friendly. No surcharges on public holidays : )

Overall this is not really a place for a cheap lunch, but that's ok as there are plenty of places like that around. Put aside $60 and you should have a decent lunch including a drink or two. Maybe a bit more for dinner depending on what you want. If you join the loyalty programme you get a running discount which you can use anytime or save up.

We will certainly be back for a fourth time and more.
