Description: Passionate about the use of local produce, the Oyster Box showcases the best seafood including Jersey lobster and fruits de mer, but also offers a wide selection of other dishes such as steaks, beef burgers and locally caught line fish battered and served with chips, catering for every taste and culinary palette. The Oyster Box takes pride in what it means to be Jersey, and the menu reflects this. By using local produce wherever possible, a genuine effort is made to serve you a meal that is as local as possible, to the highest quality and to the very best value. The ultimate aim of the Oyster Box is to present culinary excellence combined with breathtaking surroundings enjoyed inside or outside on the sea-view terrace, to create a true casual Jersey experience

“Absolutely brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We booked on line after being recommended this restaurant by a local. I think we managed to get the last table but how fantastic. It was my husband's birthday and we sat and drank champagne before being seated at a table for 2 overlooking the bay. The food was excellent with lots of choice of fresh fish and lobster etc but also non fish items. We'd highly recommend the Jersey lobster and the fresh fish and chips. The staff were excellent and very attentive and the whole evening was the highlight of our weekend. I'd highly recommend.

“Oyster Box and Crab shack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Both of these were excellent. The Oyster Box is a little more upmarket, but the food in both were excellent. The crab shack was ideal for a luchtime meal.

“Best Seafood Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

I went here with my wife and two friends for a meal and I was blown away by the quality of the food on offer. My main course was bream on a seafood risotto and it was a truly memorable meal (for all the right reasons). The decor can probably be described as having a modern beach feel to it. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the food on offer. I would definitely go back again.

“Incredible flavours, wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Not many restaurants can top this experience - quality dishes and lovely ambience. Highly recommend also the Crab next door for a more relaxed venue, you should dress up for the Oyster Box!

“The setting makes up for everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

There are very few places in Jersey with the view and the ambience to match this place. One can forgive the occasional under-cooked piece of fish, the language barriers on ordering sometimes, even the occasional arrogance of knowing they are in a top spot for convivial eating with friends and family.
It may not always be memorable for the right reasons but its pretty reliable but the views over the bay make it irresistible.
