“Great meal, excellent service”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I was in Jersey with a friend for business when we chanced upon this lovely restaurant. The owner was great - nothing too much trouble and he was just an excellent host. The food was great too - we had melon and chicken livers to start and a trio of fresh local fish for main with sautéed potatoes and veg. As others have said, the choice of food in here is excellent - its a shame we aren't staying longer to sample some more dishes!

“Average food, good service”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Tried the set menu several days ago (September 2013: 3 courses for £17.50). Food ok, nothing terrible but nothing to write home about either. Parma ham and melon was very nice to start (refreshing, tasty and lots of it), fish main (trio of seabass, sole, plaice) was rather greasy and lacked flavour, dessert (chocolate fudge cake) extremely disappointing (tasted like something out of a packet i.e. of nothing, and was served with squirty cream). Couldn't fault the service. Very mixed experience and probably unlikely to go back.

“Absolutely loved this restaurant”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

On a break in Jersey- came upon this restaurant at lunchtime. Immediately felt at home- friendly, laid back ,owners and staff. Great choice of food- from the usual pastas and meats to the excellent Italian snacks, rather like Spanish "tapas", ideal for lunchtime, or a light meal. Returned with friends for a delicious evening meal and again for lunch on our last day. Huge range of options, reasonably priced, and a good choice of wines, again well priced.
Only wish it was closer to home!
