We had the pleasure of stopping at this great little restaurant one day for lunch. 18 of us descended on the proprietors and were skillfully taken care of . The food was fabulous especially the Hake Gougons. The restaurant was obviously a favorite of the locals as seating was at a premium. If you go, ask for a table in the back in the garden... a lovely spot with a quiet and serene ambiance... you will love it.. We did.

We so wanted to like this place as it came highly recommended. The terrace and garden at the back are lovely, but we were the only table in the inside restaurant.

The menu is small but well balanced. Our party each had something different to eat, but only the lamb shank seemed to be anything more than average in terms of quality. My butternut cheesecake main was dry and boring and my husband's steak was again, just average.

The waiting staff were professional and helpful, but I think that overall, Jemima's is really not as special as we had hoped it would be. Pity.

Visited for lunch. Had a nice table outside. Waitress was very friendly.
We had a shared starter of Tapas, which was a huge plate with duck liver, spring rolls, chicken, fried potatoes etc.
Probably had enough food already after that one, but had already ordered the venison and the beef burger.
Both are presented a bit different from usual burgers with stripes of filet in a yummy sauce. Both really very good.
Would clearly visit again

Good food - service a bit slow but hey if you are on holiday it's not a big deal. Portions were large and quality good. Staff were friendly though not all offered food and wine was available. Lovely sitting through the back within the garden area on a warm night.
