Delicious Food

Visited El Tico whilst on a short break in Jersey and had the best meal of the break there. The restaurant was very busy even at 6.30 and only got busier during the evening. This is a good sign of quality food. Be prepared to wait for a table as they don't take bookings in the summer but it is... read more

Seafront restaurant overlooking the expanse of St. Ouen Bay, a great location to watch kite or board surfers or after a long beach walk. Great menu, very reasonable prices, huge portions, good service and delicious cooking. The moules frites were exceptional.

A trip to Jersey wouldn't be complete without a visit to El Tico, we went twice in four days! First time we enjoyed yet another wonderful meal in their enviable beach front location watching the sea mist roll in then out again! The service was friendly yet efficient and the food delicious. Our second visit was for a well earned... More

The best thing about El Tico is its fantastic location with wonderful views over St Ouen's Bay. The seating is not to everyone's taste as it is on long bench seats which inevitably you have to share with others. The atmosphere is relaxed but their inability to offer hot food between the end of breakfast service and the beginning of... More

Total cock up on the booking of the special room again.Double booked the room we got in half hour late asked to order puddings whilst eating main course as kitchen closing .Then asked to leave the room 45 mins before our agreed time. My warm salad was a boring cold salad. Service was good but we will never eat there... More

Thank you for looking after us for part of my hen do. We walked from St Aubin and joined friends on the large private table. Prosecco, mussells, ribs, pad thai, cold beers, service great, view stunning....and then a dip in the sea, a perfect Saturday.
