Superb Setting and Food

Perched high overlooking the town, Le Fregate is a consummate dining experience. The setting is starkly modern with a wondrous view over town. The food is anything but stark. It is indulgent and delicious. Service is outstanding and low key. Perhaps the best restaurant in Guernsey.

I have a few business meetings here, but I would not waste my own money on an evening meal. I think it is definitely surviving on its prior reputation

Was surprised how quiet it was when we went to celebrate my wife's birthday the other day on a Friday evening. The menu has changed little over the years but La Fregae is still probably my choice for the best fish restaurant in Guernsey. The simple fillet of turbot with hollandaise sauce is always really good though if feeling a... More

Had an absolutely fantastic meal, the quality of the food and service were great, lovely ambiance with amazing views of St. Peter's port We weren't staying at the hotel (which looked lovely btw) but is only a 5 minute up hill walk from the Old Government. We were nicely welcomed on arrival and offered pre dinner drinks. We were given... More

As a local person to Guernsey I have dined at La Fregate many times & have always had excellent service & food. Yesterday (31/05/15) I visited with a group of friends for lunch & we were all astounded at the poor standard of food & service. Most of our party had steak which they all said was over cooked to...

Excellent meal of fresh crab salad, rump of land and very thin apple tart. Really good service, and a wonderful view over St Peters port. Not cheap, but excellent.

I'm afraid this should have been a lovely evening, but it turned out to be a great disappointment. Although we had booked a table for 7.45pm and were there early and before most of the other diners, we were completely ignored by the restaurant manager, while all other tables had their orders taken and were seated, even though he had...
