The Oyster Box takes pride in what it means to be Jersey, and the menu reflects this. By using local produce wherever possible, a genuine effort is made to serve you a meal that is as local as possible, to the highest quality and to the very best value. The ultimate aim of the Oyster Box is to present culinary excellence combined with breathtaking surroundings enjoyed inside or outside on the sea-view terrace, to create a true casual Jersey experience.

At end-July, they managed (at lunchtime) to squeeze us into one of the last tables that evening: boy, are we glad they could. We love everything about this restaurant: the stunning view, the buzzy (sometimes hectic) atmosphere, the ability to eat perfect fresh lobster (not to mention excellent fish and other seafood), the friendly staff, the good wine list. All this at a reasonable price: not cheap, but this restaurant is up there with some much pricier places. As other reviewers have mentioned, the team are happy to help with advice, suggestions and slight modifications to menu where possible, even when the place is heaving.
We like to vary where we eat, but we enjoyed this place so much we returned 2 nights later (and again, only just squeezed in). Top marks to all concerned. Can't wait to return one day.

The food and service are good but the view is stunning. The seafood platter went down well with the friends and the Dover Sole huge! A bit expensive.

I came to the Oyster Box with my mother and son, Mum loves lobster and my son wanted to try some. We booked about three weeks before our trip by internet which was a really good idea. The atmosphere was so relaxed but the team were professional yet charming and only too pleased to help with choices etc. The meals were out of this world and when it came to the pudding, my black currant parfait was stunning. Would go back any day, the loos were fun too! thanks so much.

It was early in the season and we were undecided whether to eat outside or inside. The staff coped well with our indecision! Once settled we had a great and leisurely meal enjoying views over St Brelade's bay.

Whilst most seemed to go for the crab or lobster we had the fish mine was fish ragou, what a dish, it was heaven.
Service was good,bit odd seeing staff in jeans and polo shirts ,but I guess that's the modern way.
