The venue is designed by one of London's leading interior designers Martin Brudnizki and the menus are beautifully crafted by renowned chef Shaun Rankin.

“One for your bucket list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Having visited Jersey for the first time for my Special birthday we had no hesitation in booking Ormer after reading such great reviews on Trip advisor and seeing Shaun Rankin many times on TV,he always comes over as a good Chef.
From the moment we walked through the door we got such a warm friendly welcome the staff are 1st class. The young barman behind the bar makes the most incredible cocktails and so interesting to watch.
The ambience/relaxed/warm/friendly atmosphere greets you as soon as you walk through the door and you can't help but feel relaxed in fact one of the nicest restaurants we have dined in with excellent service and food to die for.
At the end of our memorable evening we met Shaun who unlike some celebrity chefs actually is hands on. What a nice guy,thank you all at Ormer's for making our birthday dinner celebration that bit more special!!!!

“Inventive world-class good, great service and decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Jersey has nowhere more stylish than this. As others have rested on their laurels, Ormer invested in a stunning dining room, lovely bar and 2 great terraces. I found you can spend as little or as much as you want, the 25 pound market 3 course lunch menu might have only 2 choices per course but the quality is still there in spades.

What really blew me away was the 6 course tasting menu which I had for dinner with my better half which was easily on a par with anything in London's top ten, and much more reasonable. I think it was 65 / head. We started with a generously sized tuna tartare & sorbet dish which was truly world class and the meal just got better from there, ending in an epic Raspberry souffle
and white chocolate ice cream.

Service was great and little extras like the ridiculously good bread with salted butter divine.

I think my interest in wine is hardly a state secret, and in Jersey we are not blessed with an abundance of choice. The head sommelier is charming and helpful, with by far the best selection of white burgundies, especially Chassagne & Puligny. The house burgundy is fine too. I really like this place, it makes me think I'm in London and the interior decor and finish is exceptionally high standard.

Looking forward to our next visit. Enjoy !

“Very good all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Went here with another couple for a Saturday lunch and ate from the set menu. As one would expect from a restaurant run by a chef holding a Michelin star, the service, food and atmosphere was first rate. It is a nice touch to be able to see into the kitchen and adds to the experience of eating here. We were seated in the bar area with drinks first off and there we could choose our food & wine whilst having a pre lunch drink or 2. No rush to get us through, the dishes were explained well and the orders were taken as we drank.

The food was excellent. The portions were more than adequate, everything was cooked well and complimented the dish. Nothing was out of place, everything seasonal and fresh and it left us all with full stomachs and even the coffee was served with lovely hand made chocolates served on a biscuit 'soil'. In all, it was about £50 per head including drinks, wine and champagne and it was all worth every penny. I would certainly recommend this to friends and family.

“Great welcome, great service , great food, great wine list.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I have eaten at Ormer on several occasions at lunchtime. With my wife, with colleagues and latterly with my family. The lunch menu is good value with limited but good choices. The house champagne is delicious. The decor is muted but stylish. The welcome is always friendly. The bread is excellent. Butter is the tastes butter ever.
Ilook forward to my next visit.
