We visit quite frequently with family and are never disappointed. Went recently for breakfast and was very surprised at the value for money. Lunch / dinner can be quite pricey but the views and atmosphere are great. You get seated on benches with others (a bit like Wagamamas) and you can end up having great conversations with people near you.... More

We visited El Tico on a recommendation and was not disappointed. What a find! We were told we would have to wait for 40 mins for a table (did not take bookings) but after 15 mins were offered a table. The staff were attentive and the food delicious. Even my picky granddaughter tucked into her chicken dish. The other dishes... More

After reading the Trip Adviser reviews we decided to have breakfast at El Tico. The food is just lovely and great value for money. The portions are generous. We got there at 10am and it was almost full. The location is stunning overlooking the beach. There are tables outside as well as inside. Unfortunately it's our last day but we'll... More

I was so disappointed when I visited El Tico, this cafe has been around for years, we used to visit 25+ years ago and all buy the joggers and sweatshirts! It has grown so much since our last visit. It is obviously a well liked cafe as we could not get in on our 1st visit. I hated it, the... More

Full English with 2 eggs,sausage, bacon etc, tea or coffee for £7.95. Delicious and great value. Wife had really nice yogurt with fresh fruit, granola & honey. Will be... More

We like El Tico. the staff are friendly, attentive and the food is good. Nice choice and well cooked. The only thing is that the seating inside is benches and not chairs. Not relaxing.

Excellent position on the beach wall looking out over the bay. Hoped to sit outside but there was a 45 minute wait for a table so sat inside. There is no pre booking. Inside there are long tables which would suit families. The staff were friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was casual and laid back. The menu was varied -... More

El Tico looks great, its in a great location and there is a real vibe about the place. The problem is the food isn’t actually that good, and the service is pretty meh… It’s like dating a model, looks great and seems like a good idea but just dull. Its quite expensive as well, and that’s when they get your... More

We visited friends in Jersey and had a wonderful dinner at El Tico. The staff were lovely, super welcoming and great with the kids. Food was outstanding and there's a lovely view over St.ouens beach - great to watch the sunset. El Tico's does get busy and they don't take bookings - we had tried to visit the evening before...

Had been given the name of this place by our holiday let. Weren't sure as we had passed it on our walks years ago and it hadn't looked anything special. But WOW. Walked down from St. Peter's, 40 minutes. We had only taken a fiver so managed 2 large filter coffees and 2 welcome warm croissants. Clean, cheerful, generous with... More
