“Good old fashioned service with good food”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

If you want decent food with a good level of service and free Wi Fi thrown in dont look any further.
Ignore the negative reviews. Its well worth a try

“Trusted favourite”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We discovered JKs last year, and were made to feel welcome again this year at this family run restaurant.

While the menu is simple there is considerable choice and something to please every taste, all at a reasonable price.

We tend to use Jks if late off the beach, or on return from a days exploring ( 4 times this year).

My wife enjoys the BBQ Chicken Melt, and I was really impressed by the Gammon (large) 2 eggs, chips and salad... both dishes at less than E10 each.

Yes Jks can get very busy, and on these occasions it can feel a little cramped,, and you might have to wait a little while for your food, but its the same with popular restaurants back home, and would you eat in a restaurant which was empty?

We only hit the rush hour on one occassion, it was our last night (as it was for numerous others),and we arrived lat. However as soon as we sat down Mac was straight over to advise that there would be a 45 minute wait for food so we had the choice of staying or finding somewhere else. We stayed and enjoyed the food.

Thanks Mac and family for keeping us well fed, we hope to be back next year.
