“Special”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

It may not look like much ...............but its a place where you must visit. Rough and ready but cheap and tasty. Just look who is eating there ........locals/property owners etc. They know a good place when they see it. A visit to Mogan is not complete without a visit (or two) to Jacks.

“Fantastic cheap Pizza”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Bit of a black hole to look at but large clean modern toilets and very rustic in candle lit interior. Did I mention the pizza cooked in a wood burner Pizza oven. Better than the Italians. Will be back.

“The very best, simply!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Although they serve pizzas and grilled fish their speciality has to be their grilled meats. As a group of 6 we all had different steaks, fillet, rump, t-bone all cooked perfectly over a wood burning stove. The steaks were served on a platter with a little side dish of coleslaw. Canarian potatoes and dishes with mojo sauce, bearnaise sauce and peppercorn sauce to add as you wished were served separately. It was all about the steak.

The house red was lovely to accompany the food.

We ate inside as far away from the fire as possible as there is a lovely ambience there although there are a few tables outside.

Slightly more expensive than steaks in other restaurants but well worth the extra money.

“can't understand why not no 1”
Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

ate here several times and never had a bad meal. limited choice, steaks, pizza and pasta but cooked to perfection and unbeliveable value. pizzas fron 4 euros and a huge piece of steak for 12 euro. Is not upmarket ( although atmospheric with wood burning stove) just good, honest but fantastic food.

“Looks can be deceiving!!!!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This was recommended to us by the owners of our holiday let. It looks run down but is a lovely good value restaurant. Fantastic atmosphere especially when you sit outside. Toilets were an experience but it didnt spoil anything. Lots of locals eat here so thats always a good thing. Dont be put off by the look of it hae a try as you wont be disappointed.
