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 went as a group of 10 people for a pre-Christmas meal. The staff were excellent and we were well looked after. The food was fresh and well cooked. The only complaint I would have was that the main course was disappointing. I ordered beef fillet. When it came it was quite small, and came on a medium sized mound... More

We went for tennerfest. Excellent service, very good food, amazing value, steak was superb! I really liked that the chef was making sure all the customers were satisfied. Nice interior, some music during dinner would make the whole experience even nicer. Thank you Old Quarter crew.

Having wanted to try this restaurant for while, we decided to go for a tennerfest. I was extremely pleased with mine, the chicken was massive and beautifully cooked. The fish and chips didn't seem to be a massive hit with my partner, but we both enjoyed our starters,. The service was very good. Lovely quiet little restaurant, great for couples.

Don't be fooled by the name. This is not a quaint pub. The atmosphere was contemporary but warm and welcoming. The owners are nice, the food was very good and the service was prompt and friendly. Not cheap but not outrageous either. The location is a little hard to find but well worth the effort because it provides a very... More

booked a table a week in advance. On arrival at 8 pm on Saturday evening we were told that there was a clerical mix up and they couldn't accommodate us! We have lived in Guernsey for 35 years and never had an experience like this. Needless to say we will never darken their door again. If you are looking forward... More

This review is actually fair and I have to be honest and hold my hands up and say the mistake on the booking was mine as I had this table marked down in the diary as 4 but 6 in our table plan. This is the reason we take contact numbers and after 3 attempts during the course of the... More

This restaurant matches its Old Quarter name. We visited as part of the "Guernsey Tennerfest" and we were really happy with the experience. The Restaurant is not modern and quite small. The food and service, however, was excellent and of really good value. This, in itself, could make you want to visit again!
