Brilliant. We went with a big group of friends, some were arriving at the airport (up the road) at the same time we were booked for lunch. The staff were happy with this (probably because we were a big group). The food was excellent, the setting perfect. Everyone enjoyed what they had, the only complaint was people saying "I wish...

Always visit when we are on the west coast, always very busy which creates a great atmosphere. We popped in for breakfast and even though it had been open a few minutes it was already filling up. The food is great and a varied selection for most tastes. The views as you would imagine are spectacular.

During our first 'grown up holiday' alone together, my boyfriend and I visited El Ticos (mainly cause I kept telling him it's mentioned in a Bergerac episode!) it was my second visit here but my bf's first. Best thing was being able to order a milkshake and a glass of wine (cause that's what grown ups do, right!?) We settled... More

It is a popular restaurant both for tourists and local. We have been waiting for 1 hour when came in the noon. Staffs are helpful and nice. The food was quite good. 这家餐厅有无敌海景,位置偏远,最好有自驾或安排车辆前往。我们等了一个小时的位,菜品性价比高,是一个值得推荐的去处。

This restaurant is a very busy one. The seating is mainly on benches. The staff appear stressed as they strive to deal with all the people. Tables were not as clean as they should be. The food was ok. We had to wait a while for water to be served but the wine appeared very quickly. The food arrived hot.... More

This restaurant should be your first and last stop when visiting Jersey! They serve everything from breakfast to full meals. The seafood is especially amazing - we ate mussels which were perfectly cooked and probably the best I have ever eaten. What's nicer than walking along St Ouen's beach after a superb lunch?

I just LOVE THIS PLACE, stunning location overlooking the bay, you can eat in or out, real authentic cantina experience, open kitchens, fantastic menu choices and the food is just awesome, expect to be full, you get a real decent portion of everything. Muscles are my 'got to have it' dish here, everything is so fresh. Try the beautiful speciality... More
