Out of season, really but a family concern at its best

Been before many times, and it is a must for anyone. The views as the name of the restaurant name suggests, are spectacular, with Direct view West to Sark and Herm, and in the far distance Guernsey, Sou,Sou West you have Les Ecrehous (Low tide viewable) and South West Jersey, below a sheer drop and... read more

Le Semaphore is situated at the top of the Cap de Flamanville, looking out towards Jersey. Guernsey and Sark - giving a fantastic view of the sunset when we there this week. A rather insolent waiter who ruled unchecked by the owner completely ruined what would have been a memorable evening. The oysters were excellent as was the St Pierre... More

We were recommended to this restuarant for a special 50th birthday celebration and came away bitterley disappointed. A very cold restuarant and the owner not prepared to warm up the dinningroom without a big fuss. We had to place our orders 2 weeks in advance, and still didn't receive our pre-ordered meal selection. The food was poor quality, mostly defrosted... More

Friendly service , wine list included a Giscours 95 practically at cost. Menu for the day was soso , but a la carte dishes and deserts were ok. Not that easy to access as location is a bit remote . We were there on a rainy day but view was still very nice

This place is a wow to take anyone especially on a clear day. Spectacular views, unpretentious but excellent food with a choice of several very reasoably priced interesting regional menus. Good, friendly service, not a great deal of English but that didn't matter. Need to book at the weekends to make sure of a table. We have been several times... More

We loved this restaurant. Actually this is a belated review as we went in 2010 and returned in 2011, unfortunately on a day it was closed. We made a detour too to make sure we could go there!. Still an exceptional view, look left and there are the beaches, look right and there is the nuclear power plant , but... More
