We were visiting the museum next door and stopped off here for coffee. We didn't have anything to eat but saw others eating and the food looked good. Cleanliness and service both good.

Well worth a visit. Food well cooked and presented. The response to everything is an antipodean "no worries ", that has also become ingrained in the European staff whose command of English is not fluent. Good value.More

Lovely setting sat outside, with heaters and blankets to hand. Simple menu, reasonably priced, and well presented food. Only complaint is how quickly each course arrived, would have preferred a bit more time to enjoy the surroundings. Worth a visit.More

Description
In the heart of town you'll find our bustling restaurant and terrace bar: delicious food to warm your heart and delight your palate, from Irish and British meats to local seafood cooked to order.

In the historic Weighbridge area, next to the Jersey Museum, you’ll find one of the most popular restaurants in St Helier. Locals affectionately refer to the spot as the 'Museum Brasserie'; a cosy retreat with vibrant food in a lively atmosphere.

Here business people discuss the markets over lunch and in the summer the Terrace Bar lights up and turns into a hot spot where people chill out with good tunes with friends.

Dinner is either a set menu or a la carte. Fusions of fish and Eastern spices make the food exciting and delicious. This is the place to go for good hearty food with some unexpected twists. The desserts are to die for!
