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.

Friends have had excellent previous experience and we booked a table for lunch as we only had 3 hours between ferry connections. We were told that as it was 5 minutes past 2, their lunchtime menu was not available. We were the only diners there and it seemed a little pedantic, but our a la carte choices didn’t disappoint.

Today we went to St. Peter Port, Guernsey as our 'special' for our 39th wedding anniversary and booked The Old Quarter on the basis of a chum's suggestion. We both agreed that our lunch there was one of the tastiest that we could remember in a long time! Congratulations to the Chef, who I believe is Danny, the owner, brilliant!!... More

Booked quite a few weeks ahead to eat here on our first night in Guernsey as we knew it would be busy on Saturday. As expected every table fully booked by 8.15pm and we could see why. The choice of food was excellent and so was the taste. We both had fish which was superb and beautifully cooked. We met... More

I had huge meaty prawns to start with, wrapped in the lightest tempura batter I have ever tasted. My chicken main course was excellent but... More

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
