About
With panoramic views of the sea and the mountains from inside the restaurant or outside on the deck, Jack's brings you fine home cooked fare prepared with the freshest of local produce. Whether it is a freshly baked croissant, our hand rolled pasta made with free range eggs or a decadent dessert you can be certain of a delictable experience. We are fully licensed and have a passion for coffee that is reflected in our diverse drinks menu.
