Birthday lunch with my daughter and my wife

Brilliant meal, brilliant service and we will go back again. We arrived early so got very attentive service, but even after the place filled we were well looked after, and the staff were very happy to describe and recommend dishes. It was our first time.

It's my 40th Birthday special meal, we arrive and my wife hands the staff a birthday cake and asks if they'd kindly serve it later - only to be told that will cost us £2.50 per person. Seriously? We spent nearly £200 on a distinctly average meal (with staff who seemed to rotate every 5 minutes and who couldn't talk... More

We recently stayed at L'Horizon hotel and visited the oyster box twice for dinner. Both times the food and service were superb, the scallops were the best we've ever tasted and were followed by well cooked lobster and Jersey Royals. The desserts were amazing and were followed by French coffees. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very... More

My husband and I had lunch at the Oyster Box on Saturday 21 March - what an absolute treat we had! I had asked if we could have a table in the window when we booked and that's exactly what we were given. This really made the difference to us - we so enjoyed watching the dog walkers and passers...

This is restaurant is on the pricey side so I was a little disappointed with my curry dish, for £23 in Jersey with only 5% tax I expected a little more both in quality and quantity.

While visiting family on a trip to Jersey we visited the oyster box on a Friday evening, a lovely atmosphere. This is a must while visiting Jersey as this really does have a great selection of fish and some great specials also. I opted for the oysters and then the fish platter which comprised of prawns crab and lobster. Both... More

I'd been here 4 or 5 times for lunch while I'd been in Jersey on business, and was impressed. My wife and I had a short break in Jersey, and we decided to save this restaurant for our last night, on my recommendation to my wife. I'd like to tell you all about the food, but we walked out after... More

The location by the sea at St Brelade's Bay was perfect. However, a sea view seat is only worth asking for during lunchtime as at night time there was nothing to see. However, the inside decor is delightful. We managed to get a table without booking although is was just as well that we turned up early (6:30pm). It took... More

If you are an oyster buff then head down this way. I had tasted oysters a while back, BBQ'd (yes!) and grilled but never au natural. My boyfriend had said that he enjoyed eating them and would really like for the two of us to have them together. As my birthday was coming up I asked for oysters ....and that... More

super attentive staff, friendly and accomodating. Fantastic menu. 6 of us ate here on a Saturday afternoon, we all had different things and everyone was delighted with their choices. Highlights were the seafood platter, lobster salad and the special of the day dover sole. It isn't cheap but it is worth every penny - the food and service were perfect.... More
