This is exactly what we were hoping to find on our recent visit to the Isle of Man. This little restaurant overflows with charm and the service and food were an absolute delight.

I had two meals in this restaurant and the quality of the food was very good but there were administrative problems. I think they do not have enough staff as those there were helpful but overworked. One evening, although our table had been booked, it...More

I walk past this cafe so often and I always thought it was closed because it seems quite dark and dingy from the outside. Randomly, my mother and I decided to try here for lunch and we were not dissapointed. It is small but very...More

We are delighted to add a fourth location to our family of restaurants. Previously known as Copperfields Edwardian Restaurant, our new central Douglas location is a perfect mix of old world charm and great seasonal food. Already famous throughout the island, you’ll discover everything you love about Harbour Lights right in the centre of Douglas. Open daily from 10am for Breakfast, we also offer our famous comfort classics menu throughout the day featuring the very best of local produce. Sample our welsh rarebit with smoked salmon or huge beer battered cod served with seasonal vegetables and potato of the day. Alternatively take a break from shopping and pop in for a quick coffee and cake, served all day.Our entire team (many of whom will be familiar) look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful new location.
