“Wonderful birthday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Just had our second meal at Cafe Poste in two months, the last one as our small staff outing for Christmas and today to celebrate a double birthday. As always the food and welcome were second to none, we were made to feel like old friends and the whole experience was a delight. The restaurant is relaxed and fun without being too casual and it was good to see all age groups and families enjoying lunch.
We spoke to the owner who mentioned that the photo posted on the webside with the vinegar bottle and chips, was not taken in their restaurant and we feel that this may have been confused with a restaurant of a very similar name in St. Helier. I have therefore entered an objection to the photo on her behalf and hope that this will be noted.
We are looking forward to returning there soon.

My wife & I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed.
We have been for breakfast, lunch & dinner. The service is great and the good mouth watering.
Definitely worth a visit.

“Sunday lunch perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stumbled across Cafe Poste one grim rainy Sunday in October and thought we'd ended up in heaven. The tennerfest menu was extremely good value (2 courses £15, 3 courses £17) and we ate like kings - chilli and dill infused smoked salmon timbale with brown bread soldiers followed by aubergine and chickpea tagine with couscous were delicious. My husband had a risotto of garden peas and ham with red mullet and was pleasantly surprised for a non-fish lover. His chicken and bacon main by all accounts was fantastic. The Mille-feuille desert was a bit of a let down - I was expecting layers of buttery pastry but we got two shortbread biscuit, a tinned pear and some squirty cream. However the service was impeccable and you can't help fall in love with the Nordic/shabby chic decor, all flickering candles and checkered cushions. I can't believe it took us so long to try this place.

“Lunch with Wendy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Tennerfest mad dash! Wendy chose this location because of the menu....

I was a tad apprehensive that we had not booked, however were warmly welcomed and promptly seated....

Tennerfest menu had a good choice, prompt service during the busy lunch period and reasonable...

Wendy had the tartate of and chilli home cured salmon and creme fraiche, cucumber, caper berry carpacio and brwon bread soldiers starter while I savoured every morsel of the toasted brioche topped with a saute of chicken livers, flat cap mushrooms, sun blushed tomatoes and toasted pinenuts finished with balsamic glaze...Yummy! It was delish

Mmmm, our mains:
Wendy relished her pan fried tender breast of chicken wrapped with smoked bacn, red onion and tarragon potatoe cake, honey roast root veggies and a creamy woodland mushroom sauce. She highly recommended this...

I had the herb crusted chunky cod fillet, hand cut fat chips minted mushy peas and a beurre blanc sauce...

For dessert, I had the refreshing citrus sorbet while Wendy settled for mango plus champagne sorbet...

Ambience plus toilet facillities was clean
