Making us wait over an hour for our mains and half an hour for desserts was totally unacceptable. The restaurant wasn't completely full either. We were a table of 12, but this is no excuse. The restaurant mains are 3 items for $33.50 or 4 for $40.50. Each item you order for your main is placed on one plate. Service... More

What a find! The best restaurant of its type in Geelong- amazing food, great value, and superbly efficient staff. They will prepare vegan versions of several of their mains options with a little warning. Really cannot top this restaurant for all round dining pleasure.

Very loud so not really a romantic experience but the food!! Fantastic. Decor pretty dated as well but it doesn't affect the taste and awesome variety of dishes to choose from. My wife is gluten free and it was very well catered for.

I've been here twice now, for dinner. The early/late seating thing is a bit frustrating, and probably the main reason I wouldn't put 5/5. Food is strong, different and perhaps a little overpriced but most dishes really hit the mark, not quite a 5/5 for taste but so close! Service was a little lacking on the last visit. Slightly inattentive... More

An excellent experience. Instead of choosing one main course, diners are invited to choose three or four dishes out of a list of fifteen, which include vegetarian and gluten free options, and small portions of each of these are served on a large plate. We all had different options, and no-one was disappointed. Portions were quite satisfying and well presented.... More

We went with a group of people for a Christmas function and was overall very disappointed with the whole experience. Firstly the venue felt dirty and in need of a good clean. The staff seemed to be very slow and not really helpful. We waited nearly two hours for our meal and even then they came out in dribs and... More

We had a lovely dinner and the challenge of which dish to choose is partially removed by their version of small plates. You order either three or four choices from their menu and each serving is a good size. A perfect way to enjoy several choices. We would certainly visit Jack and Jill again.

Business meal with a few colleagues on a Saturday night. Service was poor. After being seated we had to ask for drinks menu. On ordering drinks it appears our order was forgotten. Had to ask again for drinks. Took over 90 minutes to receive main meals. Fortunately the quality of the dishes was good. Won't be hurrying back though as... More

Certainly this restaurant provided a most interesting approach to conjuring up a meal.I ate there recently with some business colleagues .There is a choice of about 20 different food options and the idea is to choose 3 or 4 to be served at once.The prtions come out to be consumed.Each food choice is modestly sized with 3 comprising a reasonable...
