I've eaten here a few times . I particularly liked the freshly made lasagne. Well worth a visit. Great food and reasonable prices.

The food here really is not very nice; poor recipes, poor quality. There is normally one waiter who is nice and helpful, and several more lazy, surley (and presumably more senior) waiters who will refuse to do anything at all, simply sit around smoking, and...More

Came here regularly for a drink and to relax. Jay's is very chilled out as are all the staff. Great place to drift off and mesmerise while listening to the good tunes.

Loved this place and came here every day for a week. Tried almost everything on the menu but tuna salad was my favorite. Good service and really nice place to hang out during the daytime.
