Have eaten at the Tropical on all previous visits to Jersey, sometimes twice. Several years since last visit and overall disappointing this time around. The menu offering remains intact. However, we both found the starters to be basic, neither good nor bad. The highlight remains...More

Probably not my favourite Portuguese food in Jersey - the best I've tried is the Smugglers Inn at St Brelade's. But it is good value and in town!

Pleasant little place with friendly, helpful service and ENORMOUS portions. The espetadas were delicious and, overall, our meal was very good value for money. Very conveniently located if you happen to be staying in the Best Western Royal Hotel.

Great restaurant, staff are very friendly and provide a warm welcome. Espetadas were wonderfully cooked and dripping with garlic butter. Generous helpings of salad, chips and rice - impossible to finish. I enjoyed it so much I went a second time on my short trip...More

I didn't see a Children's menu and we visited 4 times in the evening and didn't see any children in. They were very friendly and helpful so I don't think it would be a problem if it was early evening.
