We had the chance to get a table for lunch last Saturday and we truly enjoyed our 4-hour gastronomy experience. We were amongst the first guests arriving at 1.15pm. We had a lovely Lumé Brut 100% Zalema (Champenoise method) from the Contreras Ruiz family served in the terrace with the different appetizers. We were quite impressed with the one called... More

This restaurant is really high end and the experience is truly amazing. All the dishes we had were delicious and the waiters made sure it was all properly introduced and explained. We also chose the winetasting menu and enjoyed all the different wines we were given. Price is high, but so is the quality, so it is not unreasonable.

On our last day we sat & enjoyed the gorgeous views from the terrace whilst sipping cava & beer. What a place to enjoy the sun & people watch. One beautiful location.

My wife doesn't drink too much but the sparkling wine to begin was excellent and then their choice of a glass of white and red for me were emxcellent and cheap. Would I return not sure it was totally in that sphere but... More

Over 4 hours of theatrical culinary heaven. What an evening! I loved the setting, it should feel austere and industrial with the concrete and stainless steel. It is anything but! There is a glorious wall of "hanging" plants, truly tropical and mesmerising. The food was an adventure into culinary joy, each morcel utilised to excite, tantalise and seduce. The staff... More

The degustation menu is large but carefully designed to flow from one dish to the next which works very well and especially with the selection of wines. We enjoyed every moment of a full evening of food with the attentive and sincere service. Recommended.

Wow what a meal - so excited to get a table on Valentines night and not disappointed. We had the taster menu expensive but not compared to UK comparable restaurants. Fantastic position in the marina with beautiful views, tables are well spaced out and not crammed together. Attentive staff with a mix of service and space' every course is described... More

We enjoyed a most incredible dining experience at JCG and would recommend it to anyone. We were celebrating my birthday, and it was also Valentine's Day, so we felt we could justify the expense! We opted for the 20-course tasting menu, and also had the matching wines (generous measures!). The food was truly outstanding as were the wines. There was... More

Absolutely stunning restaurant. Ambience was perfect. Food was exquisite. Tasting menu was diverse, fresh, creative and full of flavours. 22 different dishes. I was absolutely satisfied on conclusion. The staff were so friendly and patient. Definitely worth the price. An absolutely sensational experience. They even made up some mocktails since we dont take alcohol.
