Never eaten at Janito before, even though I'm local to the area.The food was excellent, best steak I've had in a long,long time and service fantastic. All the girls were great fun and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Knowle.

We have been regulars at this friendly, family run restaurant for many years but last night was a bit of a let down due, in the main, to the rather offhanded approach by our waitress Alicia. She was rather slapdash and incommunicative although of a pleasant nature and with a lovely smile. She just needs a little of Janitos training... More

I have visited Janito's a couple of times for dinner and cannot recommend it enough. The place has a real friendly vibe and the food on both occasions has been excellent. I will definitely be visiting again soon!

I regularly visit this restaurant usually for the excellent breakfast which I very much enjoy. I have also spent many good evenings there. However tonight's visit was a disappointment.

We were looking for a place to have breakfast and we came across this little place just off Knowle High Street. We managed to grab the last table! Though it was busy the service was attentive, friendly & professional. There was a good selection of appetizing food on the menu & specials board and at a reasonable price. Looking forward... More

Poor service, very dull. Poor quality of food and over priced, and a cramped atmosphere. Was expecting a lot more.

Thank you for visiting us, we are a small family run business and our restaurant is very much in our hearts so we are very sad so see you were not satisfied with what we have to offer, and it is a surprise as we have not received any complaints from any of our guests for a long time anyway... More
