Description: We are delighted to add a fourth location to our family of restaurants...
We are delighted to add a fourth location to our family of restaurants. Previously known as Copperfields Edwardian Restaurant, our new central Douglas location is a perfect mix of old world charm and great seasonal food. Already famous throughout the island, you’ll discover everything you love about Harbour Lights right in the centre of Douglas. Open daily from 10am for Breakfast, we also offer our famous comfort classics menu throughout the day featuring the very best of local produce. Sample our welsh rarebit with smoked salmon or huge beer battered cod served with seasonal vegetables and potato of the day. Alternatively take a break from shopping and pop in for a quick coffee and cake, served all day.Our entire team (many of whom will be familiar) look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful new location.

Friendly Victoriana style décor, welcoming friendly efficient staff, varied menu, reasonably priced, chairs not wildly comfy but ok for an hour or so. I ordered steak which was thinly sliced and a tad hard, but very tasty and there was plenty of vegetables cooked just right. The desert menu had "small" tasters for £2 each. I ordered a tiny trifle... More

I went with my girlfriend on a really rainy day, specifically for afternoon tea. What a delight! Everything from the decor to the waitress were superb! Lovely sandwiches, incredible scones and a cake to die for. With more tea than you could ever hope to drink. All for a very reasonable price! Not been here before, but would not hesitate... More

Towards the end of Strand Shopping street, a lovely little cafe done with a cosy atmosphere. The prices are a little high for a cafe but you definately get what you pay for in portion sizes and taste. They also do old style lemonade :) Was very busy at lunch, but they managed to fit us in with no rushing... More

Myself and a group of co worker's were struggling to find some where to eat on a Saturday night in Douglas with no reservation, and decided to give this place a go as not 1 table was taken. The 1st impressions were good, a very courteous lady made up a table for 6, took drink orders. Several items on the... More

a comfortable cafe/ restaurant with an old world feel. Staff very attentive and friendly with quick service. Menu has a good range from snacks to full meals, which are better value. Would certainly eat there again.

This looks like such a lovely little cafe/restaurant from the outside that we decided to give it a try. The seating was efficient, the service was good and we were quickly presented with menus and our drinks order taken. Towards the end of the evening it was more difficult to get service. Shortly after being seated, we were given some... More
