Description: We pride ourselves on having a unique combination of menus; with our Tapas style menu consisting of over 25 smaller portion dishes that can be ordered individually as a starter or in multiples to provide a complete meal - a very social and interactive style of dining, promoting lively debate between couples, families or groups until a compromise is reached concluding everyones preferences. This runs alongside our 'Chefs One Plates Menu', vastly different in content, these main courses always including a succulent Steak. These frequently changing dishes focus on our chef's culinary and artistic skills creating thoughtfully flavoured and beautifully presented meals. Lovingly prepared to order, using, as often as possible locally sourced fresh seafood, meat and vegetables.

My wife and I visited tj's on a Saturday night over Easter. We had picked the restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Food, staff, drinks and atmosphere were amazing!! We had the tapas opposed to the mains. The fish and chorizo stew was our favourite. Thanks to the staff for our amazing experience

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Everything was just mouthwatering and beautifully cooked.
The location was also very nice over looking the harbour
which is especially nice to see as the sun sets and all the pretty lights come on.

“The best meal I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Fantastic!! Staff, atmosphere, food everything! The restaurant is slightly off the beaten track but well worth the short walk to the harbour from our campsite. The staff dealt with my dietary requirements sympathetically and I can honestly say I've never had a meal like it. My only regret is that we live so far away.
