Kiwis eat early and so we were almost alone when we came in here in the later evening. The food was really good and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We can recommend the fish.

Good food, well cooked, friendly service. I have now been to this Cafe and Bar on 4 separate occasions and recommended it to many friends when they were visiting the area.

Pretty good food and lots of it with friendly staff. However way too bright in there, I think they could dim the lights a bit

Jollie Jacks cafe is a busy place.

We ordered breads and dips for starters,I asked the waitress what each dip was,she had to go away and come back with the answer.

We both had fish of the day,which was battered blue cod with fries and salad. Each plate had 3 pieces of fish and a good helping of fries and a small salad. At $24 for the main, quite good value. The fish was also available pan fried.

The restaurant was very busy and we had booked our table earlier in the day,especially since it was a Saturday night.

There were a couple of disasters for the wait staff, one smashing a glass,another dropping a glass of orange all over the floor before making it to the table. A good recovery by all, and service continued.

We were in seated,served and out in just on an hour.

Good service and a fire nearby on a cold night was very nice. A good selection of dishes and the venison was among the best I've ever had.
