We had dinner here as the place looked nice and was conveniently located to our hotel. Actually I think it is the restaurant of another hotel at Battery Beach. The service was rather slow and the waitress confused some beverages. The food did not arrive...More

This is a lovely semi-open-air restaurant near the beach. We had the oatmeal, the vegetarian halloumi, the crumpets, and the (savory) French toast. Everything was very good.

The food was really amazing and the service was awesome. I recommend this to anyone. Also, a great place to take clients for lunch and have a meeting. I really enjoyed the vibe. You do need to book as they get full

Only went for breakfast before but this time one late afternoon and it was absolutely worth it. Had a sundowner platter which is certainly very mediterranean and middle east like food, very tasty ! Service was outstanding and the cafe still appears "cult".

Nice relaxing environment to have a decent breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful and quality is above average. We usually grab an outside table so as to be part of the outdoor vibe. Can get very busy over weekends if the weather is good.

Been to Cafe Jiran a few times, like the assorted blends of coffees and muffins. Enjoyed my previous visits there but recent experience has put me off. Visited on a Saturday after a morning walk on the beach. Muffins were sold out at breakfast, waiters...More
