    Had a lovely afternoon/ early evening. The only issue was we were there for a reunion but the music was pretty loud. Would have expected this and it would not have been an isdue on a busy evening, but general noise levels from customers were not high and would have been more comfortable if the music had been lower and we didn't have to shout across the table.

    Chicken was over cooked and beefburger was under cooked. The paper thats put on the plate with the food on the top starts coming apart and sticking to your food.. Asked for items not to be on the food and it came with them on.

    We had a great evening in Jel, it is a welcome addition to Prestwick's hospitality , catering and nightlife options. There was a good range of both vegetarian and carnivorous options. The cocktail was lovely.

    First time at Jel. The burgers are amazing. Kids loved it too and they topped it off with a waffle with ice cream. If you are looking for a burger/pizza/hotdog bar with great atmosphere, this is the place. We will definitely be back.

    We were really looking forward to visiting after hearing good things, but unfortunately the food wasn't the best. Overly sweet sauces on all the burgers leaked everywhere as was in a basket, the tempura batter was thick and chewy, no IPAs and drinks were removed before finished and despite booking well in advance were seated at the back of the restraunt. Not impressed Jel and really wanted to like this place as its my local.

    Our server Jami was absolutely brilliant, there were 6 of us , she was very helpful and friendly, the food overall was great, no frills bar food and great value. We had the What the Cluck chicken burgers and Curly fries, along with cheeseburgers, jalepino poppers and onion rings. Really tasty. We had the Shot Tombola- good fun and only £2.50 per shot. The cocktails were good- not the best in town but good all the same, we had an issue with a Pina Colada as it tasted bland but this was rectified straight away with no issues. I’m not sure all the bar staff are particularly experienced as service for drinks was quite slow and JelBar seems to be all about the cocktails! Saying that, it wouldn’t put us off going again. Jami seemed to be the one staff member who was totally “ switched on “ all the time, she was fab with great chat!
