Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Just had our annual visit to Jonah’s and it was as wonderful as ever. Prawn entree and duck main were outstanding. Wonderful pre drinks on the outdoor verandah and excellent service. Strawberry soufflé is just beautiful.

Fabulous view! Nice ambience! Very attentive staff but not intrusive. Food was good as were the matching wines. Nothing at all to complain about. Looking forward to another visit!

I have had Jonah’s on my bucket list since last going there 25 years ago. What a venue. I had forgotten how magnificent it was. The scenery stunning and the service just lovely. We decided to have the seafood platter and it was fantastic !...Every type of seafood and fresh and delicious. Beautifully presented. Then the Passionfruit soufflé which was divine. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you for a great dining experienceMore

This was the venue for a Sunday afternoon lunch catching up with a best friend after several years apart and it was wonderful. The staff were fantastic. Very attentive, helpful, professional and friendly without being over the top. When we arrived our table was ready...but we were offered the option to take our glass of champagne to an outside couch and relax in the sunshine as we took some time catching up. The view is obviously gorgeous and one of the waiters offered to take our photo overlooking the bay before we went inside to eat. We didn't have a window table but could still see the view well. We had their famous frutti di mare which came with two sides. The presentation is spectacular and it was fresh and flavorsome. When we also ordered dessert they offered to move us to a window table for the remainder of our meal so we got to enjoy the full experience. It was a wonderful long lunch spent catching up and I appreciated the fact that we never felt rushed to get to our table, choose and eat our meals or even depart. No, it's not cheap, but you're paying for an experience alongside the food, wine and location.More

The view, the food and above all the service are world class. Attention to detail is amazing. Jonahs made us feel so welcome, like we were part of a family. They made us feel that they really cared when we stayed overnight. We were not...merely a number. The parting gift was a welcome suprise and will be cherished. Definitely one of the best places I have stayed at.More

From memory there is a couple of small steps at the front then i think one or two from inside to terrace. Best call them and ask as you know how many would be too difficult
