Expensive and slow service

Visited here with friends in December 2014. We ordered the tapas for 4 which was nice, but the portions were small, and the prices expensive. We had cocktails which were £8 each, which I thought was rather too expensive, and the bar staff took a very long time to make ( 20 minutes for 3 cocktails... read more

Nice surroundings but dreadful service and minuscule portions of pretty average (except for the price) food.

The Isle of Man needs more places like this. Great food, great atmosphere, well priced and varied wine list. Small hiccup in service was rectified quickly by staff with no adverse effects to our overall opinion. Definitely recommended to everyone.

Found the Artisan completely by accident, decided to read the menu in the window, and a very attentive waiter came out to discuss the meal options with us. We were initially hesitant as it looks very up market and we were a family of 5 who had been sightseeing all day in the rain!! However we decided to go in... More

Finding Artisan was such a relief! The IOM is a great place and very warm and friendly, but there is a distinct lack of places for grown-ups to go - that is, those that don't necessarily want to drink themselves into oblivion. We visited in the mid evening and had a couple of beers from a good selection , together... More

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and escape the lashing rain and wind and found Artisan in Victoria Street. They were busy and showed us to the mezzanine level which was quieter but very comfortable. The food is tapas style and delicious - the staff were very helpful with the ordering and advice. As they were busy we... More

I've been to Artisan several times (and reviewed it at least once before). It's definitely one of the best places to eat in Douglas - friendly staff, pleasant environment, and great food. I particularly like the way they change the menu and have daily specials so there's always something different on. Yesterday I was spoiled for choice as a fish-addict... More

We revisited this restaurant a second time a year ago for dinner with business colleagues (our first visit was when it opened, and it was fab so I wrote a great review on this site). We were really disappointed (and embarrassed in front of our colleagues from the UK) with what we chose so I wrote to the brewery who... More
