Shame you can only book two weeks in advance. As it makes trying to get a table for a Saturday night quite a challenge. However it's worth the challenge as the food is always fantastic. Best calamari in town. Staff attentive. Lovely decor. Ready for my next visit soon.

A quirky yet inviting place. Situated overlooking Tankerton Slopes. Offers fine fayre with an ala carte flavour so not cheap. An entertaning time awaits you.

We went here at the weekend with a large group of friends. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Mezze plates were amazing. Excellent value too. Highly recommend.

I have now visited this restaurant twice and have come to the same conclusion both times. The food is fine but overpriced for the portion sizes. A tomato and mozzarella salad was priced at £10 and we were massively disappointed with its size when it arrived. This is a 'sharing plates' kind of place which is ok but the portions... More

I came here for lunch with my wife and enjoyed it very much. The food was very good, fresh and tasty. The calarmari was the highlight. Seated in the main restaurant, it is quite easy to get a stunning view of the sea, which adds to the atmosphere. Very much recommended.

Ate here on a Saturday night. Lots o parking spaces right outside in the street - no walk to the restaurant! Arrived early but plenty of seating at the bar while you waited for the table. Busy and vibrant atmosphere. Cheerful staff. However, we had to ask to be seated because we had waited over 30minutes and they had forgotten... More

Oh my goodness me! What a superb lunchtime meal! We booked a table following the recommendations on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The stripped oak flooring, stripped pine table, the lovely aromas from the kitchen, the extra helpful and friendly staff (Donna you are a gem!) we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary (Sapphire) with a half-meze (or tapas) and a...

On a weekend trip to Kent we were taken to JoJos for lunch. Mothers Day, so absolutely jam packed full, thankfully we'd booked a table. I don't think I've ever been in a friendlier restaurant. The food was brilliant - don't miss the calamari and the roasted potato dish, both beautiful. I can't remember the name of the dessert but... More

We stopped here on a recommendation from the tourist office in town and we were not disappointed. We practically had every dish off the menu and each was a little delight! Only downside was the prices of the drinks. Would certainly go back again...
