(Please see the photographs) LOCATION: The restaurant is beach-front with beautiful sea views. The décor is nautical with blue walls and simple wooden tables. It is not too far from the town centre but we took a taxi. THE PROBLEM WITH THIS RESTAURANT: The service! It is appallingly bad!. We waited for 30 minutes before we managed to order a... More

I visited The Oyster Box whilst on a short break with friends. Sitting overlooking one of the most beautiful bays the setting is perfect. There are plenty of tables and comfortable seats / sofas both inside and out so the weather really doesn't matter. An extensive bar offers everything you could wish for. I opted for a well prepared mojito... More

We came here on a early Sunday evening looking for a outside table, to have a few drinks and have food. After asking inside the restaurant if we could, we seated ourselves on the terrace next to the promenade. We was eventually served by Marvin, but was told that we could not eat there as it was not in the... More

Whilst on a day trip to Jersey, we decided to have lunch at this restaurant. The beach and sea view was picture perfect from where we sat. The seafood dishes were spot on perfect. This lunch alone was worth the trip to Jersey.

Table by the window looking across the magnificent bay. Excellent food and attentive service. Only downside was initial greeting (we had not booked) "we need you out by 7.30". There are more charming ways to make the same point!

We had a great night here, the seafood platter was great and at £75 for 2 people was, I consider, good value. The couple with us both had fish dishes which were also great. Well worth a visit.

we had a lovely meal here on Sunday, and despite being very busy the concierge managed to find us a table that evening. we were encouraged to arrive early and peruse the menu whilst having a drink. The choices were excellent and the food as tasty as it looked. My only bugbear was the constant re-filling of wine glasses, Whilst... More

We hit the place in good weather - which surely makes this place a little bit nicer. But fantastic food and service will never fail - and we had this in abundance. We visited during the Jersey food festival which made us choose the especially prepared menu for this occation. Everybody was very happy and we tried the different options... More

Good food, but the waiters try far too hard to sell you the most expensive seafood player and pricey wine. If they backed off (a lot) and actually focussed on service, this would be a good restaurant - if a little pricey.
