Welcome to JAM ,
Enjoy a warm and relaxed dining experience whilst you indulge in the tastes of North Queensland . We like to explore our regional and seasonal produce and create contemporary cuisine without compromising the purity of flavour.

The JAM menu offers quick bites for a catch up through to our full a la carte selection. We also have a great special luncheon menu that is always popular.

As the sun sets over the CBD and Castle Hill sit back and relax over dinner at one of the window tables or enjoy the views of the river and CBD lights on the terrace. For a romantic degustation dinner we recommend one of the private booths,

    It was very noisy and we found it hard to hear each other, service was very slow and dessert, Lava Cake was burnt. Very disappointed as I love going to Jam, not the usual standard of service and food we usually get.

    Really delicious food, beautiful presentation and portions just right. Sumptuous desserts! One member of our party has a complex food allergy, and she often experiences boring food or symptoms from cross-contamination. The chef here is exemplary, full attention paid but still interesting flavors and complementary sauces, showing it is a truly fine restaurant. Service was exemplary as well. Well done!

    I booked a degustation dinner, asked to be seated outside, champagne on arrival and my partner allergic to shellfish. I arrived to be seated at door which I asked to be reseated. I had to wait 15 mins at bar to the. Be seated at a high table around the side - public walk through access - not the fine dining or romantic dinner I had planned. I would not recommend as staff were terrible.

    I have been going to Jam for a number of years, last year I even had my 50th birthday function upstairs. So I was very disappointed when we attended last night with a friend for a farewell dinner. We all had the tasting menu and it was by far the worst meal I have ever eaten in your venue, there was no flavor, the tortellini come out cold and the duck was dried out and chewy. The staff were all polite and friendly but sorry to say the food was terrible.

    Very disappointed. Service was very slow and 4 meals came out around 8 min before the last meal. The meals were tasty but very small, would have been acceptable as an entree but not as a main size, particularly for the high costs. I also ordered the only vegetarian dish on the menu which was served with bacon. This was my first negative experience at Jam but the first visit for many of my friends. We all left disappointed.

    Highly recommend the degustation menu! I couldn't pick a favourite dish as they were all so delicious. Definite highlights for me were the brulee dessert and the salmon crudo amuse-bouche. All the dishes were beautifully plated and had amazing flavours that I've never tasted before. The restaurant had an enjoyable ambiance and the noise level was quiet as we had an early dinner at 5:30pm. This restaurant is one of my faves for fine dining and tops the list for a degustation. Would highly recommend to everyone!

    We received great service. One meal was good the other was nice but in our opinion a bit overpriced for the quality. We ate indoors with the windows open so the flys were a little annoying.
