This restaurant had been recommended by a friend in the UK. We were certainly glad we visited. It was really busy but service was top notch and staff were very helpful. It reminded me of a favourite restaurant on Cape Cod, USA, brought back some wonderful memories. Food was fantastic as was the atmosphere. You could sit in or out.... More

Hi a fantastic place with great sea view. All tables look out to sea. The poached Haddock was to die for with an excellent wine. Great atmosphere and you are not to close to other diners. Staff very relaxed and friendly. So for great food a relaxed evening with a fantastic view make sure you go with great company.

Both of us had Crab dishes as we were in the Crab Shack! Crab Nicoise and dressed crab. Both tasty and enjoyable, served in a reasonable time with a great view. Only irritation was having to find someone to get us the bill, eventually gave up and headed to the bar otherwise the service was good.

We had a job booking a table but it was well worth the effort. Sat outside and watched the harbour - when it got chilly we had rugs to wrap round ourselves. Food was ample and very good but for once did have room for desert.

We sat outside on the boardwalk, lovely view over the beach. Food was very good although I did get a piece of crab shell along with my crab meat in my dinner. Otherwise the food was fresh & nice, an enjoyable first evening in Jersey.

Got an outdoor table on a lovely sunny day. The staff were really friendly and helpful as we were picky choosing our table. The food was lovely and fresh and the views were fab. A great place to spend time watching the world go by eating lovely fresh, tasty seafood.
