A very hospitable venue, with very friendly staff, who remember you. They understand that you need to order fast for kids, and get on with it immediately. They have a box of kids toys and books, and the layout allows the kids to move around and get toys without being in anyone's way. The menu is delicious, especially our favourite... More

The diminishing availability of BYO restaurants is compounded by many of those that do provide BYO, offer mediocre food. Not so at Jellyfish. We were there as part of a larger group. The food was very good across the board. And the service was friendly and efficient. And of course it's a great location.

Warm greeting on arrival with a long table set up undercover at the front of the restaurant. The menu was expansive and was able to cater for both the... More

Stopped by here for lunch this week while attending a conference nearby. With limited time available, we needed the service to be quick and efficient ... and it was! All staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious (I had the toasted ciabatta with smoked salmon!) and everyone at the table was happy with what they had ordered. It's... More
