Description: The Bass & Lobster Foodhouse prides itself on two things... local food and service. Established in 2009, this popular local restaurant has been recognised throughout the island for providing fresh local produce. There is a guarantee that the title dishes, bass and lobster, are served daily and the chef has local hidden treasures ready for your latest dining experience. Hand-selected King scallops caught by their local scallop diver off Jersey's reefs. Seafood served just hours after leaving the seabed that puts a real emphasis on the restaurant's fresh appeal and quality. Located along a snug stretch of Gorey coastline, with a terrace for summer wine, the restaurant offers comfortable open-plan dining. The mood is set with a dedicated team committed to serving delightful dishes with flavour and style.

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We went there for my 30th birthday for a Saturday Lunch. There were 20 of us. The staff were particularly helpful and happy, especially Aigars!

The food was delicious and everyone raved about how good it was. Fantastic value for money. We will be back!

“Great night out.”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

We went with two friends, making four of us. You need to book most Saturday nights. The food was excellent, service cheerfully and quick. The wine list both reasonable and varied. All of these things add up to a great night.

The food is a little different being adventurous without being pretentious, great flavours and thus quite surprising. The restaurant area is modern slick and you can see the food being cooked.

We have been a few times and shall keep returning, the menu seems to change to match the seasons.

“A terrific local with a fantastic chef and staff”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

My kids, wife and I were returning from the morning at the castle in Gourey. Hungry, we were looking for a local pub grub. Right on A3 west of Gourey we drove past this place and decided to stop. The staff were welcoming and started by trying to match our names with the reservations list. Later we found out we were lucky to take the only unreserved table. Indeed the place was full to capacity by mid lunchtime. The tennerfest menu was not disappointing, every dish was superbly presented and cooked to perfection. The chef seemed to favour dishes served in little pots or in a pot shape:) - potted salmon, beef cheeks, shepherds pie, and even the cheesecake was served in a glass pot (so we could not take it away with us). But unspoiled by this quirky feature every dish tasted SUPREMELY, fives stars! The staff were very attentive to our needs and we left this place very happy. Thanks for such a great culinary experience!

“Really good food and service”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Went on a Tuesday night and the place was busy - just as well we booked. The Tennerfest menu looked really good but we went for the a la carte. The staff were relaxed and efficient and the service was well paced. The food was really good with slightly unusual twists to the dishes. The food was a little pricey but worth it. I would recommend a visit.

“This is not pub grub, this is haute cuisine”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Wow. I've reviewed The Atlantic as five star recently so what can I give this? It was better! We had a meal here mid week and it was very quiet despite the tennerfest menu. We ate some on and dome off the tennerfest menu and loved it. We had the potted shrimps and stuffed mushroom to start followed by both types of scallops. The tastes of all four dishes were outstanding. I am not very adventurous when it comes to food but everything worked to perfection. As we were still a little early for the movies - Captain Phillip's (really enjoyable and isn't that Hanks bloke annoyingly good) - we opted for the taster pudding. Now I don't normally do puddings but this dish was fabulous. A couple of glasses of the decent house wine and we were set up. A quick thank you to the three chefs and we were on our way.
