If you've ever wondered what it'd be like to eat in an ashtray, you'll want to eat here. Otherwise, skip it. Bad service, bad food, horrid stench. I regret not leaving immediately.

Friendly place with decent food. Lasagna was nice and filling. Sweet and sour pork, however, has nothing but the meat and a very sticky and sweet sauce. Comfortable atmosphere.

This cafe is good for its fireplace and peaceful atmosphere, but the staff are really useless. The pasta was filled with spicy sauce (even though it wasn't supposed to be spicy). The computers there were pretty slow. The food was also pretty pricey. This place is only good if you need a coffee break.

We visited Cafe de Jack for breakfast one morning after seeing the restaurant the night before and commenting on its cozy atmosphere. I think perhaps this is the kind of place one may want to go for dinner or for a beer, but based on our experience, we would not recommend the breakfast. We arrived at Cafe de Jack rather... More

We ate at Café de Jack twice in one day, the food was so good, the staff so helpful, and the atmosphere so welcome. Great place in a wonderful location in the ancient village.

Once I came across Jack's, I knew I'd found that perfect spot to withdraw to when city walks, sightseeing, shopping got to be too much. Great coffee and my favourite: yoghurt mango shakes. But also good Chinese and Western food. If you want sunshine go upstairs to the porch, but if you are like me, find a comfortable sofa and... More

1st time I went in, I sat and waited over 10 minutes before someone appeared with a menu. After studying the menu, which looked ok, we left due to lack of interest by the staff. (The place was virtually empty) We decided to give them the benifit of the doubt and try dinner there. Again we waited and waited, before... More
