There are so many nice places to eat and drink on the Island, and as these are 2 of our favourite things, here are some of our favourite places.
Yummy bar meals
Jaks – on the prom, restaurant upstairs, good bar to watch the footy in downstairs.
The Courthouse – a few minutes walk from town, stylish bar/restaurant upstairs, nightclub downstairs on Friday/Saturday
The Bridge – a nice newly renovated pub on the Quay
HQ – Just off Central Promenade, nice food at reasonable prices
Terminus Tavern – On the opposite side of the Promenade to the Sea Terminal, next to the horse and electric trams terminus.
A bit more exotic
Paparazzi – A popular Italian restaurant on the promenade and where Adam had his first job (luckily they didn’t go bust)
L’Expérience – situated at the far end of Douglas Prom. Délicieux.

The Majestic – A few minutes outside Douglas in Onchan this Chinese restaurant overlooks Douglas Bay
