Description: A warm Guernsey welcome awaits you at the Old Quarter Restaurant from Paddy, Dana and the staff. This is honest, no nonsense food with a slight Irish slant as you would only expect from Paddy's home roots. The Restaurant prides itself on using as much locally sourced ingredients as possible; fresh from the land and the sea the taste of Guernsey comes out in every dish. Paddy and the team are keen to show off the best of what Guernsey has on offer each season and the menu changes to reflect this. Our cosy restaurant caters for parties up to fifty people, so whether its a business meeting over lunch or an intimate dinner for two we will always do everything to meet your expectations. We are also very flexible with our menus and happy to adapt to your needs where possible. You will find us at the centre of the Old Quarter among a mixture of antique dealers, art gallery's, craft shops, fashion boutiques and unique privately run shops of all types and descriptions. With its narrow cobbled streets it really is like going back in time to what most of the town of St Peter Port once looked like, but with a modern twist of quaint little shops. Any stroll around town is not complete without a trip up Mill and Mansell Street, why not cap it off with a light lunch or and early evening meal.

“Christmas Eve Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

What a fabulous restaurant, stunning food with professional, attentive staff. We booked our table by email well in advance which was very easy and at least they monitor their email account which some places don't! Paddy the Chef came out to check everything was satisfactory with our meal. We had 3 courses and all of them were stunning. The irish beef fillet was the best my Husband has ever eaten and the sticky toffee pudding with brown bread ice cream was perfect. A superb dinning experience and a gem of a restaurant in St Peter Port - will definitely be back. Thank you Paddy and your team.

“Brilliant restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

I'd been looking forward to going to The Old Quarter for some time and I wasn't disappointed in any way.
The greeting was warm, the service, with a smile, was excellent and the food was brilliantly cooked, plentiful and great tasting.
The restaurant is small and homely so I would suspect booking is essential.
But get in if you can

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Had an amazing meal here a few nights ago. The starter was gorgeous with a generous serving of goats cheese, as in the review below by an englishman there is salad that accompanies the starters, as in most restaurants!
The wine was reasonably priced (you can't base the overpricing of wine in all restaurants as a review on a single restaurant)
The main course was exquisite, large scallops in a beautiful sauce - a large portion as well!
Everyone I was with, and we were a large group, thoroughly enjoyed and intend to return! The chef came out throughout the evening to ensure the food was up to scratch and it most certainly was.
I would suggest people reading the reviews take some with a big pinch of salt, particularly ones that insinuate local people need to broaden their horizons!
Thankyou for a good evening!
