Description: A warm Guernsey welcome awaits you at the Old Quarter Restaurant from Paddy, Dana and the staff. This is honest, no nonsense food with a slight Irish slant as you would only expect from Paddy’s home roots. The Restaurant prides itself on using as much locally sourced ingredients as possible; fresh from the land and the sea the taste of Guernsey comes out in every dish. Paddy and the team are keen to show off the best of what Guernsey has on offer each season and the menu changes to reflect this.  Our cosy restaurant caters for parties up to fifty people, so whether its a business meeting over lunch or an intimate dinner for two we will always do everything to meet your expectations. We are also very flexible with our menus and happy to adapt to your needs where possible. You will find us at the centre of the Old Quarter among a mixture of antique dealers, art gallery's, craft shops, fashion boutiques and unique privately run shops of all types and descriptions. With its narrow cobbled streets it really is like going back in time to what most of the town of St Peter Port once looked like, but with a modern twist of quaint little shops. Any stroll around town is not complete without a trip up Mill and Mansell Street, why not cap it off with a light lunch or and early evening meal.

Encouraged by the very positive feedback we decided to go to the old quater at dinner. We checked before the menu and opening hours after reaching the place we found the door closed but light on inside the restaurant as well as two bored ladies from staff it was a Monday at 7pm. Although the service perfectly astonished saw that... More

Called in during the day to book an evening meal and had an interesting conversation with the owner/chef Paddy Scally and a local eater. I had what turned out to be our best meal on the Island.I had Scollops wrapped in bacon,which I removed as it tends to alter the taste of the Scollops.This was served with a salad.For main... More

Six of us went last Friday and had a delicious meal. The food was very tasty and on a par with Pier 17 but somehow without the same flair. Service was slow to pedestrian but our waitress was very pleasant and as we were having such a good time it did not seem too much of a problem. The specials... More

Absolutely delicious food - crab cakes and stuffed chicken breast for me with strawberries and Guernsey cream to follow. The service was friendly and although a little slow I think the fact that there was 11 of us makes that excusable. I would definitely come back here again and would encourage Paddy to invest in updating the decor to match... More

A little bit out of the way, but worth a visit. Busy for a weekday, but we had booked an early time. They offer an early bird menu, which looked fine, but then you are tempted by the main menu. A little on the expensive side, but then we found most restaurants in Guernsey expensive. The food was really good... More

We were excited to go to this restaurant as the reviews were so good - maybe we caught them on a bad evening.... We were seated quickly but there were only a few diners in as we were eating fairly early. We asked for a few minutes to think about what drinks we wanted and then waited for another 10... More
