Jimmy's Bar and Restaurant has a wonderful inside/outside layout with plants and flowers. The food is always excellent as is the service. It is a good place for a coffee and a read of the paper or for a meal. The front area has long tables and a general type of menu whilst the rear area is a more formal... More

My partner and I dropped in for a late lunch and ordered the charcuterie platter and gorgeous zucchini flowers and we were very happy with everything. We were provided with warm cob and the most delicious fennel seed butter whilst waiting. The restaurant was busy but the staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful and friendly. It...

Great service! Management were very accommodating to our needs. My sister organised my hens in their private room which overlooked the balcony/terrace covered in lush green vines, it was just beautiful! And the food was amazing! Highly recommended for private functions or just a night out.

Last weekend my daughter got married and had her reception at Frangos and Frangos. The whole thing was absolutely spot on. The wedding was perfect in the courtyard and the reception was magnificent. The food and wine was vegan, and although I'm no vegan I enjoyed every dish, much thanks to the chefs. Bernard was our host and he was... More
