Fabulous service from all the staff at the Museum Brasserie. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a retirement party for one of our GP's and the evening was faultless, the food great and the service superb. Thanks to Gavin and Alex for all their care and attention to detail. This was our second event within a year and we... More

Merchant House, was some of the best service I have ever received in a restaurant, warm friendly and welcoming. The Food itself was some of the best Sirloin steak I have ever had, the home made bread that they serve should be available to buy to take away! The black treacle wholemeal with jersey butter so delicious! The restaurant itself... More

Many thanks to Gavin and his team at the merchant brasserie for a wonderful night on 3rd jan. . They opened specially for us to host our party and we had a great night.

Dear Mr Sewell, Thank you very much indeed for your excellent review! I cannot tell you how pleased I am that you enjoyed your party with us.

We had our staff Christmas meal here earlier this month. The food was dreadful and every one at the meal was of the same view. It is still a talking point days later. I chose a crab and crayfish cocktail to start. This consisted of white and brown meat mixed together. What other restaurant would serve that? It was absolutely... More

Many thanks to the Merchant House Brasserie and their excellent staff, lead by Gavin and Alex, who looked after us so well on Thursday. Our Christmas lunch party of 13 was not at all unlucky in any regard. The Christmas menu was tremendous value at only £20 for three courses, and had just the right blend of sophisticated, but not...

Went for our Christmas party and had a great meal. I had crayfish & crab starter followed by duck and it was fantastic. My only complaint and it's a small one, was the lack of vegetables. Only two green beans!! Other than that I would definitely go back again.

After visiting the Jersey Museum and meeting the finders of the Celtic coin hoard which is being conserved "live" we had a lovely lunch in the attached Merchant House brasserie. Service was great and food delicious.

Went for dinner and took advantage of the Tennerfest menu (we hadn't booked, but got the last free table - what timing!). Fab, inventive menu - neither of us could fault our choices. Our waiter was great, very attentive, but not overly so, and quite happy to have a proper conversation with us. If we return to Jersey, we will... More
