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.

We ate here for a 70th birthday meal as a group of 10 diners. The staff were pleasant, well meaning and personable though service was not as polished as one might expect at this location. The food was well presented and of good quality and the menu seemed to have been designed to make most efficient use of ingredients. For... 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

Wanted somewhere in Douglas for a late lunch with friends. Looked on Tripadvisor and made our choice which turned out to be a good one. The young female waitresses were charming and helpful. We all enjoyed the Manx Kippers with crusty bread. And had a selection of delicious desserts. We did spend a long time there as we were with... More

All was good, I liked the meat and veg but maybe I am too fussy on my roasties. They were beautifully crunchy and tasted as though they had been boiled the day before. Staff lovely as always.

This place would be 5* however they did not give us a choice of tea with our afternoon tea, just the standard English breakfast tea I guess. However the food was incredible, and lots of it too even for two people. The shop is really lovely as well, very well presented.

Stopped off here for a light lunch, 3 course special for £11. Great value meal, polite and friendly staff, lovely decor and ambience. I had the carrot soup, fish and chips and strawberry meringue. My other half had the onion soup, chicken hot pot pie and peach melba. Both really enjoyed our meals, would come here again.
