“Great view with lovely food”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Stayed at the apartments at Corbiere and have eaten in the bar which has beautiful food at a reasonable price and in the restaurant with family- which we all loved.

It definitely worth a visit to, especially on a clear day for the fantastic view out to the lighthouse. A great place to go for a meal for a special occasion. We've always found the staff pleasant and attentive.

Will be going again on our next trip to Jersey.

“Good food, beautiful setting”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Six of us had dinner here in a light, airy restaurant with wonderful views of Corbiere lighthouse and cliffs. Yes it is expensive but we felt the 3 course table d'hote menu was worth the money. The food was nicely presented and the male staff who served us were pleasant. We had no complaints at all. The restaurant was busy on a Wednesday evening so they must be doing something right!

“Staff detracted from the nice view”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stopped in after visiting the lighthouse for some afternoon tea. The view is lovely, that's a given. We ordered two cream teas, which were fine and the price was on the high end of reasonable. However, the front-of-house staff completely let this place down. The man behind the bar (we assume he was the manager) seemed completely disinterested in taking our order and wasn't very pleasant. The waitresses would come out to the terrace and bark out the food orders as if they were addressing a troupe of soldiers. Finally, the waitress whipped away all our plates and my unfinished tea before asking if I'd finished. They're clearly milking the location as there's not much else in the area. I suggest you bring your own food, or buy an ice cream from the local vendors and have a picnic on the cliff tops. The service will be immeasurably better!

“Enjoyable”

Spectacular views! Food was enjoyable and the staff were very pleasant. Would definitely return next time we are in Jersey as you could not fault it.

“OVERPRICED in comparison to places of similar standard on Island”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We were very dissapointed that this place appears to have gone up so muh in price.... believe me you get no more for your money. There was a splattering of meals for £12 (including fish and chips and veg lasagne) the rest were between £19 - £25 - shocking!!!! An espatada for example - you got 3 king prawns and 3 pieces of beef only, some chips and salad and at £19 - I don't think so. Irish coffees - £6 each, served in a standard wine glass and can't even taste the whiskey...... I don't think so .... you are fooling no one!

Tourists - my advice as a local who has lied here all my life and regularly eats out.... go here for a drink only to enjoy the view. For food of same volume and standard rather go to better priced places such as Cheffins (st Aubins), Sommerville Hotel (st Aubins), Roseville Bistro (Harve Des Pas). For espatadas, find a portuguese restaraunt.

I will echo what one local said in the reviews for Big Verns (st Ouens) - which is owned by the same person......"GREEDY LITTLE MAN"
