Yet another great dining experience in St Helier. Scallops starter followed by their Web recommendation, Assiette of Pork was a real winner, all complimented by very reasonably priced large glasses of wine. Their warm carrot cake is a twist on an old favourite. Gem choice for a place that looks expensive and is far from it, but more that out... More

At a re-union of colleagues we were treated to some excellent food and faultless service I had, bream (imaginative) confit of duck (tasty) and Black Butter pudding ( melted in the mouth although it could have had a stonger flavour, chef) Thank you for an enjoyable evening

We made a last minute decision to eat here today and we are so glad we did !! We took advantage of the tenner fest menu not just for the price but the dishes appealed to us the most . We ate so well 3 courses for £17.50 each and every dish was well presented and delicious such an improvement... More

Just called in on the off chance they had a table for two. Seated straight away. What can I say, had 3 courses, not very often we do this but the food was to die for. My main of pork 3 ways was absolutely outstanding. Then I had a raspberry soufflé which was a special and again outstanding. This restaurant... More

We were in Jersey for a long weekend. We didn't have a reservation and we arrived at 8:40 and the last food orders are at 8:30, thankfully they could sit us. Even though it looked very busy with loads of big groups. Steak was good well and the lamb rogan josh was delicious and we shared a dessert which was... More

Went for lunch while visiting the Jersey Museum. We were met with a smile and all staff extremely courteous. We were not rushed. Able to sit outside in courtyard as lovely warm late September day, but inside looked pleasant too. The food was absolutely delicious - couldn't fault anything. Will definitely go again when we return to Jersey next year.

Even packed with the sixty odd members of the UK Maritime Heritage forum they managed to produce a superb meal with excellent wines. The only down side was that sixty odd people all talking at once can be a bit loud, but one can safely assume that doesn't happen often.

Called in here on our first day in Jersey and had a drink. Really liked the surroundings so decided to try the food one evening. Very pleased we did as the food was delicious. Ate outside and was provided with a fleecy blanket in case we were cold, which we weren't but a nice touch regardless. Would highly recommend

A very pleasant experience, greatly enhanced by having a 'catch of the day' to match the quality of fish on earlier display at the fish market. The food was very well prepared and presented. Having these as part of a two or three course meal also meant it was great value.
