“The only problem is.. we can't go often enough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We recently returned to Lido's, having not been (to eat) for roughly a year. Far too long! It's as good as before, if not better in some departments (new options on the dessert menu which were fav). They've redesigned the menu a little and added a few things, removed some old ones and generally tweaked it - leaving a very good balance between fish, meat, vegetarian, etc - and pairing up some old classics in new ways (such as the lovely garlic/chilli spinach now served with some steaks).

Service has always been brilliant at Lido's - efficient, but friendly and unfussy - like the food. Couldn't ask for more, except maybe deeper pockets so we can go more often!

“No Real Complaints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We went back to Lido's after a long, long gap (15 years?!) thanks to a two-for-one promotion being offered through our local telecoms company. The time elapsed between the visits was nothing to do with any dissatisfaction last time!

The menu was varied given that we had to choose from a curtailed version as we were on the promotion. One complaint which recurs in restaurants so, so often: why offer a vegetarian option as main but no veggie starter? This was the case at Lido's but the waitress in charge immediately produced the full menu and invited my partner to choose a veggie starter from the a la carte, which was a nice gesture and much appreciated and so much better than having chef rustle something up at short notice.

The food and service were faultless. My calves liver was perfect and the veggie ravioli attractively served and tasty albeit in a sparse portion. Desserts (five to choose from) were delicious. It speaks volumes that the restaurant was full on a wet, cold Saturday lunchtime and people were being turned away during our time there.

We enjoyed the experience and the food immensely. However, off the promotion our lunch would have cost about £87 (with pre-lunch drinks and wine) which does rather put it out of our list of regular haunts. However, I can think of fewer more enjoyable days out than to enjoy that same lunch in the summer, sitting outside people watching in the busy street leading to Jersey's beautiful Victorian food market. We are saving up already.

“Lovely bar food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Stopped here for lunch with a work colleague from way back. A nice sunny day enabled us to eat outside. Ordered the prawn sandwich with chips, which were delicious. Always a safe bet for lunch, last time I had a delicious steak and onion sandwich. Great bar scene....

“Excellent food comfortably meeting our individual requirements.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

The evening menu was inviting. We liked many dishes on offer and requested a variety of dishes from the starter list. The request was happily accommodated. The food lived up to every expectation. Another quirky request for one of the excellent desserts was met without a problem. With a decent, reasonably priced bottle of house merlot and lovely service this was excellent in every way. Thank you.
