This original outlet tucked away in the laid-back Dempsey area is my go-to for tea and dessert after doing shopping for groceries and cheese (the best selection in town!), but not the best place for a proper dinner.

Have eaten here a few times. Consistently poor service which is such a shame as the menu is good and the location great. Dog friendly pleasant terrace tables outside and modern industrial feel inside - although high ceilings and concrete floors and walls make for loud acoustics in the cafe. Ate here most recently for a Sunday lunch / brunch.... More

Very ordinary food, expensively priced, imposed and obligatory service charge and does not accept American Express. It's all about Jones never mind the customer :-(

The service was unfortunately not up to par; they had us (a group of 8) wait 30 min before we could order. We even tried to flag down several waiters to take our orders but they did not take much notice. Once we finally managed to place our orders we had to wait 45 min for our food to arrive!... More

When in Singapore and you want a break from local Asian food, Jones can give you a sanctuary. I had snack here - salumi, cheese, bread, and coffee. I was so happy. It hit the spot and it was just nice. This place had a cheese room like no other in Asia. The selection was pretty awesome considering it's Singapore... More

I went here for a valentines day date and it was so much fun! The food is really, really great. The staff are friendly and service is quick. They offer a wide range of food and you can buy things like cheese, bread, bread spreads, nuts, candy and so much more. A great place for lunch and breakfast and for... More

Rude staff, was going to complain but realised all are the same so what's the point. Really feels like it's an effort for them to take your money.

We have been to this place occasionally and every time we were here, we were impressed at how consistent they could keep up the poor service. Food was mediocre and overpriced as usual, nonetheless, it's a good alternative when Dome is full. Anyway, if we have a choice, we wouldn't be here.

I fully agree with GH's review before...went on Sunday..made us wait in line for 40 mins only to be told items on the menu were not available...and then the food we ordered had double the salt...both the dishes and the salad they call Super Food..less said the better....can safely say, it was the worst experience I've had with any restaurant...

Lunch with friends on Sunday. Those of you who read my other reviews know that I am usually pretty accommodating but this place was just so bad... I won't rage here and write the whole story of what happened but basically it's all about overpriced tasteless food over compensated with high level of grease and salt. Plus it was cold... More
