Had lunch here recently. Lovely bowl of soup each. Coffee and scones to follow. Scones were very dry and looked and tasted shop bought as opposed to home made. Staff seemed to care more for regular customers. Very expensive at £22 in total.

This is a very quaint little restaurant with excellent service and quality of food. My friend and I visited on the afternoon of the Manx Races so it was particularly busy but the service was second to none, as was the food. Highly recommend on your next visit to the Isle of Man.....

Soup and a sandwich is a great option. We had French onion soup- great soup full of onions and good bit of cheese and chicken noodle with sweetcorn and ginger- great taste. You have a choice of sandwiches all freshly made. Had food envy for someone having afternoon team but definitely no room for anything after my soup and sandwich!... More

I stumbled upon this beautiful little cafe/restaurant today when I was killing a few hours before my flight home. And I'm glad I did as it is a cosy little place with a wonderful welcome and tranquil atmosphere. A really quaint English feel to it. The menu offers everything from Manx kippers to crumpets to scones to macaroons to cakes.... More

Our early flight to the Isle of Man meant no breakfast and we were rather hungry by lunch. We found this restaurant and enjoyed a delicious light meal - soup and cake for my wife and kippers and a Knickerbocker glory for me. Superb cooking, great flavours and the lovely warm bread combined in a taste jamboree. My Knickerbocker glory... More

We are delighted to add a fourth location to our family of restaurants. Previously known as Copperfields Edwardian Restaurant, our new central Douglas location is a perfect mix of old world charm and great seasonal food. Already famous throughout the island, you’ll discover everything you love about Harbour Lights right in the centre of Douglas. Open daily from 10am for Breakfast, we also offer our famous comfort classics menu throughout the day featuring the very best of local produce. Sample our welsh rarebit with smoked salmon or huge beer battered cod served with seasonal vegetables and potato of the day. Alternatively take a break from shopping and pop in for a quick coffee and cake, served all day.Our entire team (many of whom will be familiar) look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful new location.
