Only 20 covers - so book in advance

Located at the entrance to the local fish market. This seems to ensure perfect fish and seafood at very reasonable prices. Staff were very friendly and waited patiently and politely for 20 minutes whilst we drank our coffee after everyone else had left. Will definitely go again.

Wow, what a restaurant. Small but very friendly and relaxed . If you like fish it's a must place to visit when in St Helier. Food was great and all cooked in front of you. No place to hide for this chef..! Good value and very very enjoyable. Advisable to book.

We ate here last night on trip advisers recommendations and found it a small but welcoming restaurant in the fish market in St Helier, a comprehensive menu obviously fish related a generous starter of king prawns followed by lobster and fillet surf and turf and a lobster thermidor.No frills food but tasty and good portions.

Don't be put off by the decor and the slightly informL setting. The food is good value and tasty. The sea food here is particularly good. Uy makes a nice change to be here and it is in the center of St Helier.

Small cosy bistro tucked away in the fish market. Book to ensure table as only around 20 covers. Positives : fresh oysters, availability of fresh fish, relaxed atmosphere, rustic feel rather than fru fru dining. Only quibbles were slightly brown avocado on the avocado délicia starter, smaller than expected portion on the turbot special of the day, tasty nontheless. Overall... More

Love a visit to Bistro Rosa for the amazing seafood. The chef knows how to cook fish to perfection-fresh and simple and just wonderful. We have never had a bad meal, the staff are great and this little restaurant is a hidden gem.

What a find (recommended by others on trip advisor) only has 20 covers so tiny place hidden in fish market. The fish soup was lovely and was the definition of fresh. A must go to place for lunch highly recommended

We had booked for the Saturday evening and as recommended had also booked the seafood platter. It was massive, 1 crab, 1 lobster, whelks, squid, prawns and plenty more. I was a little disappointed with the cooking it seemed a little over cooked. The staff could not have been more helpful and added to the experience. Small and cosy.

Went with two friends having looked at tenner fest deals online. It didn't look like we expected ( not a big shiny restaurant) but my goodness, the food was the best meal I can remember for a long time. Service friendly and efficient and lovely atmosphere. Freshly cooked, 5* seafood for very reasonable prices. I wanted to kiss the chef... More
