We had a dinner here on Saturday, 8 adults.

I am keen on Carveries, usually enjoy them very much, hence we were booked into this hotels harbour Room for their Gill and Grill, buffet/Carvery.

I presume another title would be a surf and turf buffet, so was looking forward to trying it, even though as not a big fish eater, i presumed I would simply only order the classic meats etc.

The premises are beautiful, very traditional, the staff are attentive and the harbour room itself is clean and comfortable with crisp white linen table cloths etc, the hotel premises could not be faulted, add this to the fact that the Pomme D'or is steeped in Jersey history of the island, we were very impressed with the venue.

But the food!...

Well, let me say at the outset, tall the food was excellently cooked, presented nicely and was plentiful.

The system was, as a starter, help yourself to a cold buffet of meats, (salami/ham etc) or fish (crab claws/oysters etc) and various salads/olives, dressings etc etc

The order form their menu cooked food such as steaks, chicken salmoin etc, ansd it was here the premise failed. Ii had p[reseumed, not being too fond of fish, i could order a steak or chicken breast, together with the customary green veg carrotts, new potatoes etc, but this was not the case.

the menu, was entirely GILL and GRILL TOGETHER. for example, no sirloin or fillet, but minute steaks, ok, but served with tiger prawns etc and a seafood sauce, or my chicken beautifully cooked in a cream sauce WITH a salmon fillet alongside, , i found this a little weird, and would have preferred to choose mu own combinations.

As a result, younger members of our party who really disliked fish found nothing to eat within the menu and so, went back for more cold salami from the buffet.

On the positive side, other members of our party who enjoyed fish, very much enjoyed the oysters and crab/whelks, etc which were very tasty.

Desert was again a selection from the buffet table, there was lots of it, trifles, cheeses, cakes, crème caramel etc etc and all very nicely presented.

To sum up, a beautiful place with well presented, well cooked food, but not too our taste on this occasion, when visiting Jersey again thought we will return and choose the a la carte menu downstairs which would have been more to our liking.

Dear John C

Thank you for your review and excellent comments about our hotel and staff. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the experience so much.
Your comment about the format of our Gills & Grills is taken on board and we will endeavour to be a little clearer about the alternatives available. Whist we are always happy to cater to the individual tastes and needs of our guests when these are brought to our attention, perhaps we could improve the way that we communicate this in the restaurant.
Nonetheless, I am extremely grateful for your very constructive feedback and I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.

We had a two course buffet lunch. For starters there is so much to choose from and then after we had the roast beef. Ivonne the waitress who served us was lovely. Always smiling and very friendly. Marco the waiter was also very good. Fantastic lunch. We will definitely be going back soon.
