“Nice surprise”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Just popped in with a friend for a light lunch and was pleasantly surprise. The service was excellent and my crayfish salad was very tasty. My fried had the beetroot salad and she said it was also lovely. Can get busy though, but worth a visit.

“Always lovely and welcoming. A touch of class in Wivenhoe.”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Always enjoy a trip to Jardines - thanks to the lovely atmosphere and friendly, delicous food and drink and welcoming service: whether just popping in for an afternoon coffee or dining you're treated with courtesy, warmth and respect by the charming staff who genuinely seem to like people. A great place to take friends and relatives.

“Good food, lovely staff”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Have eaten here a couple of times, enjoyed the food very much, friendly efficient service (although both times organised events) and tasty, well presented food. Very pleasant environment, not cheap but worth it!

“Very good food”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

The food I had at Jardine's was very good, but hardly earth-shattering. I had some nice whitebait, but there were not that many of the blighters, then a nice bit of hake. It's worth a go, and I think they do a reasonable set menu.
