We visited on our last day of our holiday for brunch (4adults and 5 children). We needed to wait quite a while for a large enough table but it was definately worth it! Staff were friendly and very efficient and food was amazing. I can't wait to go back again to try the lunch or dinner menu! Great place and... More

Since the new El TIco opened I have eaten breakfast, lunch and evening meals. I have just stopped for coffee and a drink. Everything has been superb. It is served promptly and always fresh ingredients used. It can be so disappointing if it is busy....you cannot book ahead, so just order a drink and wait and look out to a... More

A bit limited in choice but I chose the cheese coated in Walnuts on a bed of Rocket. This fitted my diet perfectly. The cheese was nice and had a beetroot chutney that went with it. It had a sprinkle of balsamic dressing but the beetroot chutney added little to the salad. An extra zing in it would have been... More

Since my last visit a few years ago, this beach front café has been upgraded from a cake-place and now serves good tasty food. Recommend the crab and lobster linguini.

7 of us and a dog is not easy to accommodate on some of the hottest evenings this summer! We sat outside in the baking sunshjne. Would recommend indoors in the +30C heat. Everyone found something on the menu and we came back for the mussels.

Just returned from El Tico as we were having a quick bite to eat before dropping friends off at the Airport. Three of us chose the Lobster and crab salad with Royals which was basically half a lobster shell with a little crab in the space where the lobster had been pilfered away plus some salad and six potatoes £19...

Have been here many times over the years when I visit family in Jersey and, in particular this week, have noticed that the service has significantly improved since our last visit together with the quality of food. Great to see - keep it up!

This place is very popular with locals and surfing fraternity. A modern cafe/restaurant with indoor shared bench/tables and outdoor seating, buzzing in sunny weather. But there's s pretentiousness about it: they know they're popular and thus feel they don't have to try too hard with the customers. The menu is great for fish and meat eaters and limiting for vegetarians... More

Popped in here for dinner Friday night and so glad we did. Everything from service to the quality of food was top-then there's the view....going back for their breakfast and dinner again before we leave this beautiful island.
