We had a few starters that were just perfect with a bottle of wine. The Octopus salad, cheese plate and mussels. Loved them all.

Pretty people, pretty drinks, what's not to like? I'll tell you. Being over 50 pretty much sucks for you at JRDN!

While staying nearby at the Pacific Terrace Hotel we actually ate here three times over just a few days and enjoyed every meal. We did breakfast the first day and I really like the JRDN omelet and prosecco. One of the best things about breakfast is the potatoes. A day or two later we did have brunch as well. It... More
