LOVE this place!

Head here every time I'm in Jersey, perfect place to head for some food after a long day surfing:) incredible views of the coast and some of the best mussels I've ever eaten. It's crazy popular so there can be a bit of a wait for tables on hot days, visit outside the busiest peak times!

Flying visit to Jersey and taken here by locals for a business lunch. Sea front cafe charm plonked down seemingly at random in the sand dunes on Jersey's west coast. Very busy on a wet and windy Thursday lunchtime in February. Nice atmosphere with a big stove keeping the whole place warm and friendly. Food well above "sea front cafe"... More

what a great place, and a fantastic location. Whilst we only stayed for a drink on this occasion, the menu was fascinating and hearty - Vietnamese soups, Japanese curries, and various other meals and snacks, as well as sumptuous looking cakes! Will definitely go back if/when we go back to Jersey!

Overlooking the beach, this place has 'got it right'. The service is really good and the food is varied - but always great. I recommend the curry selection - always brilliant and something for everyone. I met with a few friends and the atmosphere is relaxed and easy. Added to everything else, it's great to look out at the fabulous... More

Always without fail an excellent lunch or supper to be had here at El Tico. Consistently of a high standard, buzzy, casual, easy dining of a high quality.

We met a couple whilst walking and they recommended El Tito for lunch. Splendid choice; friendly convivial atmosphere; lovely mix of East & west cuisine. Local fish: fish & chips to die for and crab linguine. Good basic drinks list. Lots of diners for a Monday lunchtime. Altogether great experience.

Good tasting food with fabulous views over the beach. Chicken katsu curry was very nice and fresh fruit smoothie. Would love to visit again in the summer.

We went for a breakfast on a Sunday - dont know why but had high expectations. Have to say the food was disappointing. We turned up at 11am had a bit of a wait - no problem. Gave our order but the drinks didn't come until we reminded the waitress after 10 minutes. Order 3 El Tico Hash dishes. This... More

Arrived to late for breakfast so decided to stay for lunch, the menu is exceptional only problem to much to choose from. I opted for the mussels with chilli they were small and delicious served with french fries and crusty break just perfect, son had crab and prawns sandwich on ciabatta equally delicious. Great lunch and good value for money.... More

Great variety of food available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have visited on numerous occasions and love the location. Food is slightly expensive but worth it.
