Fish lovers heaven!

We ate here twice during our 3 night stay as it was so good. It's a very small restaurant but it's got a great atmosphere and the food was excellent. The staff were friendly and worked really hard. The lobster was delicious, and we thought the set menu was excellent value for money. Have... read more

Good tasty seafood; very well prepared and presented but we both felt we were eating in a building site with scaffolding all around - OK so repairs and decorations have to be carried out but it rather spoilt the ambience and experience.

Wonderful meal, great service and very reasonably priced. I do not know many set menus that have monkfish on it so this was fantastic. I will be recommending here to everyone that will listen!

We get to visit this restaurant at least once a month to eat either grilled lobster or their lobster thermidor. I also love their fish soup as well. Chef/owner is also very friendly. A must-try if you visit Jersey. However, you must make a book in advance if you are going to dine on Friday evenings.

reasonable selection of food but felt the sea bream I ordered should have come with vegetables but these were extra . As the restaurant is situated in the fish market they need to make an effort with the décor.

What a find! The set menu is fantastic value and the outstanding quality of the food resulted in us booking in for a second helping the next night. Knowledgeable and friendly service. As the saying goes....the best things come in small packages!

Wednesday 15th July, 6pm - a table for four adults and a baby. Two of us had been before and had really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. This time, we returned as a family. We were not disappointed - how does the 'old boy' produce and cook such excellence from the space of a wardrobe! Everything (even the Manager's jokes)... More

Went here on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and we were not at all disappointed. The blue hut within the fish market is great and a wonderful welcome from the staff. Starters of Gambas and fish soup shared, soup absolutely delicious with just the right amount of chili. My plaice was huge and could easily have served two, cooked to... More
