Have visited this bar for a number of years now. It is always busy with a good atmosphere. Bar staff and door staff are very friendly. Should really be bigger as sometimes its that busy you have to wait until some people leave before you can enter but that shows you the quality of the place. Would advise anyone visiting... More

First impressions were very good. We arrived approximately 9pm and were greeted by charmingly funny doormen (everyone i met on the Island were soo friendly!) We found a table by the door straight away, which was probably the last free table for the whole evening. Three pints of lager for less than £15, apparently pricey for IOM, but cheaper than... More

Usually great and nice wine selection. Our last meal was quite horrible and overpriced. Only thing that kept us in the place was to finish the wine!! Won't be going again.

Husbands french onion soup consisted of large pieces of onions in a watery syrup More sweet than a desert..He finished up eating cheese and biscuits for mains.My "corn fed"... More

As a regular visitor to the island I tend to try as many places as possible and return later if I have enjoyed the experience. The Artisan has always been a regular spot for me to return to, its modern, clean, trendy always a huge selection of beers, lagers, cocktails. Always gets busy as the night progresses gets loud and... More

a contemporary wine bar, modern layout. Gets busy so would advise booking at peak times. Very attentive staff. Modern spanish style food. Our food was tasty. Would recommend for a date type night, rather than a more relaxed romantic night.

Ordered duck/pork rolls, tempura prawns and sweet potato fries - beating in mind have had these dishes many times - it appeared they had gone to Iceland and bought cheapest... More

Poor food: limp salad, tasteless onion rings Dirty glasses, unfriendly staff, and overpriced. There are far better options in Douglas... my recommendation is to go to them instead. This place has potential but seems to me that they need to be more discerning and raise their standards.

This bar has a fantastic feel to it, a nice classy relaxing hideaway in Douglas. On my visit I decided to eat and had a very tasty salad with very tender chicken. There is also a great selection of lagers from around the world. I will be going again.
