Our first night at jolly harbour took us into this restaurant, al fresco dining which is very nice, a great looking menu with plenty to choose from and cooked very well.
What really let it down for us was the service and the price, to say the service was surly is an understatement...
...Whaddya want we were asked in a monotone voice from a stern looking lady!!
And it didn't get better, when it came to presenting us with the gastronomy I was told " move your neck I gotta serve from the left"
Silly me...fancy wanting to sit upright!!
The biggest shocker though was the bill, 3beers, 1wine, 4mains $158 thank you very much!!!...definitely not worth it...but the food was well cooked

Service was good. The outdoor area next to Marina was good, but nothing special or romantic. Food was average. my kids liked their pizza and the tiramisu. lots of cats roaming around

Located at Jolly Harbour marina right beside Akropolis and Maydays. We considered it about par with Akropolis but note that food quality varies with th dish, and consistency over time is variable. Nice spot and ambiance. Lady who served us was cold, bordering on gruff.

Very slow service. Meals are average rather than good. Prices a bit on the high side, but not outlandish.

Travelling around the island and not looking for anywhere specific to eat we wandered into the little area that housed this restaurant. Being Torontonians and having eaten in at least half the Italian restaurants in the city ( not), we gravitated to the dockside tables to enjoy the gorgeous weather. A very interesting and varied menu-something for everyone- and we decided while sipping our wine. Do we have the 8-slice pizza or the 8-slice (in joke)..the staff will guide you well. It was only lunch so we settled on pizzas and salads. Very engaging and personable staff made the experience very enjoyable and the pizzas and salads were excellent. We came back in fact a couple of days later ..again for lunch...more of an appetite this time and had some of the daily specials...obviously very fresh seafood dishes and again delicious. We ordered 3 pizzas to take back to the St James club for dinner ...with equal success. Unfortunately we would be reluctant to try to come for dinner because of the roads and lighting but would very highly recommend to any in the area around Jolly Harbour. And we will come back for lunch. And ask Adrian about the 8 slice and the 8 slice
