Everything from salmon starter to goats cheese sandwich and mini-burgers was excellent! Really good place in the center of St. Helier, Jersey. Should go!

Pleasant welcome for us 4. Just 2 starters of Tempura & chorizo which were enjoyable. Mains of pizza, wings, the fish pie was very good. I had a special of the day & fish and chips. Not the cheapest of places but well worth it.
