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.

Lovely lunch

I had the toast and pate, partner had the soup. Both were delicious. Wine came in small carafes which was a nice touch. Sweet treats sound very tempting. Nicely decorated place, calm atmosphere. I'll definitely take my mum there one day. Friendly service, only it was a bit slow.

Dropped in to this bistro cafe for lunch. Friendly staff, varied menu. Settled on earl grey tea and queenies (scallops for the unaware ;) ). Large pot of tea appeared in short order, quirkily done using odd china :) followed very quickly by the meal. All arrived piping hot. Goodly sized portion accompanied by veg and bread. Tasty, filling, satisfying!... More

Walked in early evening and found ourselves having a great evening meal! The staff was very attentive, patient and just enough conversation. The food was delicious and had a very nice variety of sides to compliment the main course. All this at a reasonable price
