Have eaten here a couple of times, enjoyed the food very much, friendly efficient service (although both times organised events) and tasty, well presented food. Very pleasant environment, not cheap but worth it!

The food I had at Jardine's was very good, but hardly earth-shattering. I had some nice whitebait, but there were not that many of the blighters, then a nice bit of hake. It's worth a go, and I think they do a reasonable set menu.
