Went for a family meal, and it was amazing. Staff very attentive and especially friendly with our 3 young children. Food was truly fantastic, all very fresh and nicely presented. We asked for a few changes to some of the meals and it was done without any fuss. We had a lovely time and weren't hurried at any time. Expensive but good value for money

Visited this place on 3 occasions during our weeks holiday to jersey this time last year and the meals and service were excellent.

Booked months ago for this visit tonight and we were left wanting! The food was mediocre at best and the service was dreadfully slow... Had a 1 hour wait between courses!! No children's deserts and thus we were expected to pay the adult rate of between 6 and 9.50 for the pleasure (that's more than the kids meal!)

The staff were attentive in some areas eg the man appeared every 5 minutes to top up the wine when it didn't need topping up - we really found this intrusive not attentive.

We never complain as a general rule, preferring to voice our discontent by not returning and we did not complain tonight (complaining can worsen a already bad situation and we were not in the mood for confrontation). On the way out through the busy ish restaurant - out of 5 staff we passed only one Eastern European waitress acknowledged our departure or thanked us!

Won't be dining in the Oyster Box 3 times this trip!!!

The Oyster Box is consistently one of my favourite restaurants here in Jersey.

The service and food is superb, as is the laid back beach style atmosphere of the restaurant.

My favourite when I went 2 weeks ago is the lobster thermidor with Jersey Royals, sublime.....

Book a table as it is likely to be busy. But we had good quick service. Oysters were lovely. Fish perfectly cooked. Very pleasant evening. A trainee waiter had a problem opening a bottle of wine for us and broke the cork. A more experienced waiter came over, apologised and produced a new bottle for us and served it. Good attention to detail.
