Description: I found this Restaurant & Bar by chance, and it is a very popular meeting place for the english speaking expatriate community. Hidden up a narrow alley, it offers a high level of security and discretion.

“Nice atmosphere, good inexpensive food, nice garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I am an occasional visitor of Jardyland and have always had a good experience with their food. The place is known for their Friday's Fish & Chips but I seem to always set on something else. My favorite is the Chikouya Beef with creamy spinach as a side dish.

“good f&c”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

we ate there a few times. the food is average, the service is slow and unreliable. sometimes waiters or waitresses forget part of the order, or come back to you 30 min. after you placed your order to tell you they don't have what you asked for. Friday's fish and chips is good though (and I am not British!)

“Service was nonexistant and famous fish and chips terrible...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

They missed our drinks orders on a number of occasions (cardinal sin of a bar) and the famous fish and chips were terrible.

The fish was baked in batter and way too fatty. A whole group of us felt ill all night.

Would never go back there again.

“Nice place trying to improve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

It's true it was nicer before crisis, change of style. Male waiters definetly not doing their best. Nice live jazz music recently introduced. A bit overpriced but you will be always welcomed at the bar by Amelie.

“No Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

The restaurant's location is undeniably superb but all 4 times I've been there service was terrible or nonexistent. The waitress would argue over the order made, you'd sit forever waiting for your change....
The fish and chips is just ok and overpriced.
