Looked at reviews and though we would give it a try as we were staying at L'Horizon on the bay. What can I say but this was excellent. From the helpful service to the stunnIng food, especially the grilled oysters, all without fault. Enjoyed it so much that we went back again. Great to have so much local fish, cooked so well

Thoroughly recommended - worth making the trip out of St Helier for this beachside seafood restaurant so make sure that you book ahead. Fresh sea food well prepared cooked with really good service. Couldn't fault a single item that we ordered - just wish I could back again!

We visited the Oyster Box on the last night of our family holiday to Jersey, it was only a short walk from our apartment and we had booked the night before and although there wasn't room in the restaurant, they managed to find us a table outside under a gezebo style set up which also had its own heaters so it made it very comfortable and offered great views of the beach,
I ordered poached oysters in champagne butter sauce as a starter and shared it with the rest of the family, they were truly superb. for the main courses two of us had the fish and chips whilst the other two including me opted for lobster, everyone said their food was cooked beautifully and they were more than satisfied on completion.
3 of us enjoyed desert, one had parfait the other 2 cheesecake all were excellent again
So why not excellent then you may ask? well this is the only reason why but feel it is an important one, food superb, wine very good and affordable, service good but here is the thing, despite the service being good and all our needs being met I feel this is where the Oyster Box may need to think, the atmosphere and the restaurant are aimed at high end dining, the staff however friendly are not dressed in a way to match that expectation and I would not have been confident in the staff being able to offer a good explanation on either the way the dishes were created and sourced or the selection of wine.
The last point was more of an observation and didn't really detract from our evening which was very good, it just meant it was 8 1/2 out of 10 rather than 9 1/2.
I would recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely be returning

We really enjoyed our meal at the Oyster box. We were unable to make reservations, but when we tried our luck in person they were able to squeeze us in if we agreed to vacate the table by 9pm. This gave us plenty of time to enjoy some delicious starters, mains, and a bottle of wine. All the food was amazing and the young staff was very good.

We ate here to celebrate our engagement in August 2013 whilst holidaying in Jersey.

The restaurant has a fantastic location overlooking the beach in St Brelade.

We booked online and turned up 20 minutes before our reservation. Our table was ready and we were able to be seated imediately.

The menu had a wide selection of seafood and each dish looked well constructed and thought about. We had the plaice and mackerel - each were well presented.

We had the cheesecake and coconut creme brulee for dessert. The cheesecake was inventive and possibly the best i've ever tasted.

I will definately visit on my next rip to Jersey.
