Often go here for lunch - food is always nice and there is a large selection to chose from. Its casual and generally the service is good and quick. Prices are very reasonable and there is a friendly warm and relaxed atmosphere.

Popped in here yesterday for a quick bite to eat. Great menu and loads to choose from. Between us we ordered panini, bagel and bruschetta. All tasted amazing and portion sizes were big! All came with loads of delicious salad too. Would highly recommend! !

Great location, great food! When we went Jayjays was very busy but it's easy to see why! Nothing better than sitting outside overlooking the beach on a hot summer's day, eating a burger and chips!

I agree with some of the earlier answers. The prices are not cheap but it is a quality place in a great location. As the TV advert says " I'm worth it".

I'm unsure what times jays opens but I guess it would be 0900ish. Unfortunately the only parking is at top of cliffs and walk down. But there is wheelchair access down the slopes.
