This is a fairly upmarket restaurant in the main shopping/eating area of St Helier.

For the main course we had lobster salad; the lobster was fresh and tasty, though the salad aspect of it was OK but plain - no interesting ingredients. Hence I would rate the food 'good' not 'very good', but for some reason TripAdvisor does not offer a 'good' rating.

The prompt service was welcome as we were in hurry.

This was the first restaurant we visited in Jersey and we chose it because many restaurants were closed on Monday. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly and the food excellent value for money. The turbot was cooked perfectly and the Jersey royals complemented it especially well.

We visited here Easter weekend, initially struggled to find the restaurant until we looked up and spotted it on the first floor. Has a traditional feel and decor (which I liked) and the service was excellent. The food was delicious, with generous portion sizes but not so that you left feeling uncomfortable. Would recommend for a delicious meal out. It's slightly more expensive than some of the other restaurants in town, but I think this is reflected in the top quality food.

We recently visited Jersey and were staying in central St Helier and did not want to drive in the evening, just wanted to eat a good meal and relax, this we did at the de la poste! We came upon it whilst out shopping ( it's upstairs and not too obvious) . Anyway the menus looked good and we decided to try it, we were not disappointed! The service, food and wine were all superb, lots of very good fish dishes but also l overly speaks and pasta dishes. The restaurant itself is quite small and intimate but for us that added to its appeal, it felt 'personal' and we were not rushed! It is in a bit of a time warp, has the fell and ambiance of years gone by but there is nothing wrong with that, in fact it's wonderful and adds to the whole experience! It was so good we went back for a second evening.!

My family called in on off chance early on a quiet Sunday evening. Greeted and seated quickly as we were first guests to arrive after the 6pm opening. Nice efficient team waiting tables, the ambience I thought was nicely 50-60's vintage and nothing wrong with that..... Cool music. My fillet steak in cream & brandy mushroom sauce was huge and superb. My wife and daughter had a selection of sea food with rice which was perfectly cooked with subtle flavours. Nice choice of wines available and our Merlot was very pleasant. Selection of Italian, French and English desserts, the creame brûlée was delicious. Could certainly recommend Le Poste if you are in St Helier.
