“Lovely food and setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I had the set lunch menu and thought that it was great value and tasty. The sun was shining so we decided to have our pudding and coffee outside, this was not a problem for the staff. The service was good and we have a lovely experience all round.

“One on my favourite restaurants in the Isle of Man!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Have eaten here on numerous occasions, both for lunch and dinner and I have never had a bad meal or not enjoyed going there. The restaurant is decorated tastefully and has a lovely warm feel about it. The service has always been exceptional and very attentive. The steaks are absolutely delicious cooked in their Josper oven and you can really taste the difference from them being cooked that way. I love all their starter choices and and always struggle when trying to decide which main course to have. I can't recommend this place anymore and would strongly urge you to try it. Its lovely to see a local family run restaurant using plenty of Manx produce and promoting that they do. Keep up the good work guys!

“Simply Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This is quite easily one of the nicest meals I have ever eaten! To start I had the crab bruschetta which was lovely and for the main I had grilled sea bream which was equally as tasty! It has such a cosy feel to it, just a lovely relaxed evening. Great service as well, will definatley be going again!

“Swiss House, Glen Helen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We had Sunday lunch at the Swiss House and booked a table which is advised. The staff were welcoming and attentive, despite being very busy. The roast beef was first class and served rare, as requested - local Manx beef which is so important to support local farmers . This restaurant should be visited.
