“Friendly and Fun”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely evening meal at Doran's Courtyard Bistro and we were blown away by the character and charm of it. The staff could not have been friendlier and they ensured we had a fantastic experience. Only down side was they had no ales on, but we came here for the food and that we could not fault.

“Best meal in Jersey”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Proabably the best meal we had in Jersey - had the Tennerfest menu - rarely do I eat and enjoy 3 courses - but did on this occasion - all were very tasty and nicely served.
Did not have the bread in a pot as it was laced with curry - ugh - but husband enjoyed his.
Not sure about the one of the members of staff - his jokes were a bit tedious after a while - but it did make for a memorable evening!

“Brilliant Bistro”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Nice restaurant decor and very good food. Had the set menu which was £15 for three courses or £17.95 for three. For each course you have a choice of three dishes. With the quality of the food three courses is a must. They are not massive courses but the amount of food was perfect. The a la carte dishes are much larger but then they are more. However you are definitely not short changed using the set menu, Each of the three dishes were, complex beautifully presented and delicious.

“Bread In A Pot Not”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I don't know how we caught with the infamous bread in a pot. Could be part of the Early Bird, but it really would have been better to avoid it as it is stodgy and it lingers in your insides far longer than its welcome.

Apart from that is not a bad place. Drinks are good there and service is pretty up to scratch.
