2nd visit to the Oyster Box and have to say the food is really nice, Andre one of our waiters fantastic hopefully he will pass on his skills to other staff. My friends ordered a drink while waiting to be seated and had to ask 3 different members of staff to see where the drinks were. Finally as we were eating our starters they sent a poor trainee to serve the drinks which they ordered nearly 30mins earlier.
Great place for a meal just pray you get a good waiter/waitress.

My husband found the food good at this restaurant but frankly the sevice was very amateurish. There seemed to be a number of trainees working and we were served by at least 6 different waiters/waitresses. The ambiance is not very relaxing with all the servers running around-- comes across as a very hectic, unorganised place. Water was spilled on the table and not wiped up and our bread plates were removed after we were asked if we would like to have more bread! We had to ask for them to be replaced!
The oysters were fresh and delicious as was the monkfish. My husband had the seafood platter and found it very good also.
The view of the beach and the water is wonderful- ask for a table by the window!

Great food, good service. Very good until we were chased outside the resturant by a waitress who said we had not left enough cash for the bill. That was until she actually counted the money. Very embarrassing!! Felt like asking for the tip back.

Thank you for visiting Oyster Box and apologies for embarasing you as you left. We have recently changed our bill print out and it shows drinks and food separately now, and as a consequence a few customers have left the wrong amount . So we are probably being a bit overzealous in checking this now, we have noted this and changed our process. The money you left was also new and so struck together when it was counted. Hope we will see you again soon?

Food is fresh and the menu is varied, mainly fish but lots of alternatives if you are veg or a meat eater. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and views to die for. St Brelades bay has a vibe of its own! Well Worth a visit.
