Had a very enjoyable meal at Jaks with some friends. Started with three dishes we shared, enjoyed them all. Prawn twists had a nice flavor, enough prawn, and did not have the sweet chili sauce every restaurant on the island uses with almost every starter (if you can't tell, a little tired of it). Chicken wings were a good size... More

We booked here for a meal for my birthday as we had enjoyed it the year before.

Lacks atmosphere, tables very close together. Wrong wine served because they are changing the wine list! Starters good but burgers very dense, did not have the loose texture one expects for hand made. Served with bun despite ordering NO BUN. Would not return.

Had the rump steak and it took two people to tell me what i had with the steak for the basic price, The meal was great, onion rings instead of chips, my wife had a vegetarian meal which she said was very nice.. if staying for longer on the island would go agai.

Just visited JAKS after spending the weekend with family. Great place to watch football. Went upstairs for dinner, great steak, but please sort the steak knives out. Fabulous desert and good wine all at a reasonable price. Will come back on next visit to my homeland
