Great location, good food, average service

The view across St Ouen's beach is fab, and the food is well portioned and tasty. The pulled pork bun is amazing.The only thing that lets it down slightly is the haphazard organisation when it's busy and the service that corresponds with this. Busy shouldn't = miserableness!

We stumbled upon this place by chance one evening and can't recommend it enough. The restaurant is really relaxed, great food - we had the ribs and burger. Can't wait to visit in the summer and sit outside to enjoy the view.

You can often have a long wait at El Tico because it's so popular - and rightly so. We ate here on a sunny Sunday - waited 45 minutes watching everyone on the beach which wasn't such a hardship. The food was beautiful - I had a special of sole fillets in tempura batter with a crab and avocado salad... More

We had lunch here on the recommendation of friends and immediately booked for dinner the next day. The menu was so enticing that I wanted to try everything on it, a mixture of traditional grilled food, fresh fish, asian, mexican and the best of several other areas. We had a delicious coconut curry, a halloumi salad, fish and chips (no... More

Went for lunch today and had the haddock chowder that comes with warm ciabatta bread.. Asked the waiter if I could have the bread with garlic butter instead of normal butter and was told " there may be a small charge for that " I was a bit surprised that I would be charged extra for some garlic butter instead...

Great service- Very chirpy and smiley girls served us straight away. Great view - unrivalled beach setting! Delicious freshly cooked food. We went twice, once for breakfast and had Mexican eggs which were amazing! Then went back for lunch that following day and had mussels and chips, also gorgeous! Dessert of organic ice cream great and wheat free. I could... More

After 18 holes golf nearby we both had quite an appetite. The beachside restaurant I'd eaten at during the summer closed early on Sundays so we drove 3 minutes to El Tico. Fast, friendly greeting invited us to wait for 20 minutes. Why not? 5 miles playing golf and a wonderful view over the surf meant we were quite happy... More
