If we eat out for breakfast, we always pick Jam. The food is delicious and we've never had a bad experience. It's busy on the weekends and you normally need to book in advance but on weekdays you can walk in and get a table

We had the most beautiful brunch here. Everyone at our table said it was one of the best meals they've eaten. Coffee was fantastic and service was second to none. Location so great. We will be back.

Very professional service is the hall mark for this restaurant. The menu sparked my interest as it was innovative and used flavours and ingredients that added new dimensions to the main ingredient. Serving sizes were adequate, wine menu was extensive with a good price range....More

I came here as a magazine we'd read whilst heading down the coast had mentioned that Jam won the best breakfast in Australia crowned by the Savour Australia restaurant and catering awards for excellence. Now don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad feed and...More

Everything about this restaurant was excellent - the decor, the ambience, food and staff! Inside everything is well laid out and placed, and tastefully decorated. Even though the inside area was full the noise level was not loud. We had a table outside for dinner...More

Could not fault this restaurant for its decor, ambience and food. Excellent Thai rolls to start. The goat red curry for mains was an unexpected but delicious dish, the only down-side being that with such a generous portion of this hearty meal there was no...More

hi i have been reading your reviews, both good and bad. I'd just like to say on the responses to the bad reviews I found them very rood as I feel everyone has a right not to like the restaurant they have attended. I think you should take the bad reviews and learn from them instead of being so nasty to the people that didn't like your restaurant. my parents own a restaurant and have gotten bad reviews over the years for different reasons being new staff are to slow, new sheff not the best ect and they just say sorry for your bad experience please come and try us again and we will try to make you experience much better. After reading your comemts i no longer want to try your restaurant and i just hope these comments havnt also put off other people.
