I hadn't read the restaurant's website carefully, and I took my family there on a Friday evening hoping to have a great dinner. I did not realize that dinners are only by special arrangement. And the owner was busy serving a private party when we arrived. (Dumb tourists, we were!) He could not serve us. But he took pity on us and he did!!! Sebastien is one hard-working master of the kitchen. He made us two delicious strawberry/blueberry crepes with a chocolate sauce that were delicious. And he even let us sample his homemade macaron. (All while serving a large crowd in the back of his restaurant!) Oh, what a delight! We vowed to return and so we did the next day.
Lunch was lovely as well. Our son had a ham and cheese crepe and my husband and I both had the vegetable tarts. The crust of the tarts were buttery and crisp. The two different fillings were seasoned so perfectly. We wanted some side salads and when we hesitated, Sebastien decided that he would give a sampling of them all -- wonderful! The various salads were all delicious and lightly dressed. Coffees were excellent, too. The selection of desserts we ordered only scratched the surface of the variety of tempting pastries in the case. I could have eaten one of each! I want to move to Saint Helier and eat at CocoRico every day.
Sebastien is so hospitable and talented. We wish him great success -- and a chance to rest occasionally.
Sebastien, thank you so much for taking such good care of us during our holiday on Jersey. We shall remember your hospitality and your delicious food forever!
