If you are finding the local experience too demanding, then this is a good cool spot. Nice wines and classy food where you can "observe" the town without being overwhelmed by it !! Definitely a better place to eat. Very creative delights.

Chef Joe Brown is a master. You can always tell when someone has a passion for his/her craft and that is definitely Chef Brown. I am always thoroughly impressed with the meals so lovingly prepared at Jaffa's and service is always fantastic as well. You simply cannot go wrong.

A group of us went to Jaffa for lunch. The place is indeed very nice easily accessible by taxi almost in town yet away from all the hustle. Jaffa is known for its buffet menu. A wide assortment of food is served ranging from appetizers, main and dessert. A must for anyone wanting to have a really nice lunch /dinner.

Fell onto this venue during a recent conference. What a find. The inside is expertly designed for cozy cocktails that move into a sit down for groups both large and small. All food fresh n tasty. Don't miss the dessert. The jelly roll cake was Delish.

A group of 10 of us enjoyed Jaffa's Lunch Buffet yesterday. The service was tops, and the variety available at the buffet was mind-boggling. The price for such great service and variety was quite reasonable also. However, there were a few points where the food quality dipped just a little below the standard that we expect from Master Chef -... More

Had a fantastic Sunday champagne brunch on Oct 19 with my husband and a friend. The food was as always delicious and the addition of the egg dishes is great. We had added the unlimited champagne which we really enjoyed. Can recommend this to any body.
