Stayed at La Haule Manor Hotel and had complementary transfer to this restaurant as part of the package. The restaurant had been modernised since our last visit many years ago and lost some of its traditional charm as a result. Both wife and I were a bit disappointed with the meal itself; the main course being monk fish with mussels where the mussels really overwhelmed the small serving of monk fish.

We were staying at the La Place hotel for a holiday and wanted to invite family who live on the island to have a meal with us. We chose the hotel's restaurant because it was convenient for us and we had read good reviews.

Like the rest of the hotel, the staff in the restaurant are friendly and want to do everything they can to ensure you have a great time. We sat in the bar having a pre-dinner drink while pondering the menu before going through to the restaurant. Our food was tasty and nicely presented, and we had a lovely table too.

Good food, fresh local produce and good value for money. Excellent service. We were staying at the hotel and ate twice here; both meals were delightful.

Beautiful restaurant, lovely interior design, Comfortable lounge, friendly staff with great banter, good array of wine.
Bland food. Potatoes and veg were on the wrong side of al dente. Roast beef was tasteless. Luckily gravy was tasty. SeaBass was swimming in butter which unfortunately didn't improve the unseasoned blandness.
Crumble was not enjoyable and coconut tart was heavy and non-indulgent. Cappuccino and latte were nice.
It's been 14 years since I visited this restaurant and I was left disappointed by the quality of food. All other aspects were hugely improved though
