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.

We had a great breakfast last weekend. Though busy, the girl who served us Carol was lovely to speak to. Our food took a bit more time to arrive (the restaurant was full) but it was hot and tasty and the Christmas decor was lovely....Will definitely return!More

I’ve been to the spitjack once before and the food was amazing so I had to go back. Unfortunately this time round the food was only mediocre. Set menu had loads of options. I had calamari for starter, overbaringly salty that it destroys the seafood...taste. Our plates were being cleared from starter and the main course was literally out on top of us… I appreciate they need the table but it felt very rushed. Main course was nice (pork) but again nothing compared to what I have had here before.More

Went for a breakfast brunch last weekend and had an amazing time! Staff is so pleasant, the beef burger was sumptuous and the ambience is warm and cozy though it was so busy. Lovely coffees too. Highly recommend this place and will return soon!

With the excellent reviews, the need for a reservation and the higher prices I think we were expecting more from here. I opted for the surf and turf steak and prawns. The steak and prawns were just ok, nothing special. I definitely have had better.

Had a lovely dinner in the SpitJack. Food was delicious and the staff were super friendly. We were served by Ciara who was more than helpful for the duration of our dining. The place was very busy for a Tuesday night but Ciara was always...close by for any customer who needed anything. We would definitely visit again for both the beautiful food and the wonderful service.More

My father and I had a wonderful experience at The Spitjack last night! We shared the calamari that we both found boring and bland but the steak was a perfect mid-rare served with grilled mushrooms, onions and creamy prawns cooked to perfection. The chips were...cold and a bit tough but the amazing poivre sauce made us not care about chips. We shared a creme brulee that was fantastic with a wee bit of delicious whiskey. Our server Ming was outstanding, attentive without being overbearing and is the reason for the 5-star review; if just reviewing the food, I would give a strong 4-star.More

Great service, dining environment and ambience but choose your menu choices carefully. Hallumi Tabouleh salad lacked flavour.

We went for a 3 course dinner, the place was packed, the ambience was warm and lovely. The French onion soup was delicious and portion sizes were huge. The staff are a credit to the organization, pleasant, non intrusive and the attention to detail is...superb. Can’t wait to be back, well done to all!More
