Took my family for the Greek special last night. Lots of tasters of different dishes - Like a Greek Tapas - all were exceptionally tasty, as good as I have had in expensive restaurants on Cyprus and Greek Island sailing holidays. All those people who remember this place as a rowdy wine bar are really missing a treat. This has got to be the best restaurant in town.

We found Jay Jay's mid-afternoon on a Friday after the lady at the nearby grocery store suggested it and left totally satisfied with the food and service. The place is down a cobblestone alleyway so you wouldn't just walk past it. You have to know where to look. It is hard to imagine a more welcoming environment. We have three small kids but were made to feel right at home. The menu was varied and the food fresh and good. Even the bathrooms were spotless. The Mediterranean plate was terrific. But, the real highlight of the place was the friendly and welcoming environment.

We have dined here on numerous occasions including valentines day, the service, food and wine have always been exceptional. We even got a lift home from the waitress as there were no taxi's available. We would recommend to anyone. They do a fabulous sunday lunch too.

Tucked away in a side street, near the Minster. Very busy spot selling a good range of drinks. A number of wall mounted televisions are present for viewing.
