This was our most expensive meal in Jersey but the fish and lobster were very fresh and beautifully prepared. The Madeiran waiter was very attentive and friendly. Would definitely eat there again.

This may be a small restaurant but it is a giant in its field! Fine ingredients, beautifully prepared, attentive service in a unprepossessing setting in the fish market. We cannot recommend this highly enough. We travel to Jersey to eat in Michelin starred restaurants, but always eat here as well: the dining is fine, albeit not fine dining! Don't miss it and do book - it is not big and is amazingly good value.

Sited at the corner of the fish market , understated but great team of 3 making excellent food. Pleasant efficient service, open Sunday with early evening menu. A real find ! Can be a little cool near the door in wet weather , ask for a table at the back when booking as small and intimate.

A most unassuming restaurant at the entrance of the Beresford fish market in St Helier. My wife had the Scallops which were divine and I had the Lobster Thermidor with prawns, the best I have ever tasted. With 2 glasses of wine and water this came in at £41, amazing value for money. Our only regret is that we only found this place on the last day of our holiday and had already wasted good money an a bad meal at a fish restaurant that was recommended to us, see my other review if you are curious. This alone is worth making a trip to Jersey for. Well done Bistro Rosa.

This is a bistro to visit if you want the freshest fish perfectly cooked by a dedicated chef. The venue is small, dark and part of the fish market but the welcome and service are excellent. The oysters were first class, the lobster succulent and sweet and the fish on the bone (sea bass and sea bream) couldn't be bettered. Remarkably this was the only restaurant in Jersey to serve Jersey Royal potatoes with the fish that had actually been freshly cooked rather than cooked ahead and warmed up. (A warmed up new potato does not have the same flavour or texture in my opinion) The short wine list is more than adequate. Try the Portuguese Dao 2006 which at £25 a bottle was a bargain. We didn't get to try the desserts but they looked really good on the plate.
