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.

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

We checked Trip Advisor to find a good place to eat and liked the look of the reviews on the Old Quarter. It's a little hidden up the back street of St Peter Port but only about a 5 minute walk from the harbour and well worth seeking out. We were greeted by a lovely waitress, the tableware was all...

After having a fantastic meal here last year we were very keen to come back, so on walking past during the day popped in and booked for the evening. We were shown to our table in this cozy restaurant and were soon served with our drinks. Fresh bread was brought to the table and we ordered our meal. Again we... More

The food was superb and we were able to choose from an extensive menu. Service was, however, extremely slow and extra staff would have perhaps solved the problem. We did appreciate a lovely atmosphere

The Old Quarter is near the top of Mansell Street, and takes a little finding, but worth doing so. Needs booking, as we only squeezed at 9pm with 2 days notice. Run by an Irish family, which explains a menu with lots of seafood, but also lots of champ! Large portions, with the surf n turf of tender steak and... More

We had booked well in advance and were really looking forward to our visit based on contributor's reports. However, from first impressions to conclusion we were left underwhelmed. I'd say the meet and greet was functional and our waitress continued that theme. The table wasn't big enough to place our bottle of wine so it had to sit on a... More

Situated in the quaint old streets of St Peter Port, this restaurant proved to be a little gem. Comfortable and cosy with friendly and helpful staff, this restaurant provides food of high quality. Owner/Chef. Paddy, found time for a chat with us.
