Bracewells is a small friendly and very individual restaurant serving a menu which makes you look twice, because the mix of ingredients is sometimes something of a shock. Horse radish, parmesan and rocket icecream being just one example which I simply had to try. And found it to be a brilliant combination. Very worth a visit, for a meal out... More

Bracewell's is a small restaurant at the bottom of the cobbled High Street. It has a very enjoyable intimate and homely atmosphere where conversations struck with neighbouring table guests is commonplace. Mary, the host, is most welcoming and friendly. The food is deliciously different and that in itself adds to the evenings entertainment, discussing ingredients and flavour combinations. We ate... More

We found this place while returning to our hotel from the harbour and couldn't get a table for the same evening, so we reserved for the following evening. The welcome was warm and genuine, the service excellent and the menu original and intriguing, especially the desserts! I chose the beef carpaccio which I loved, and my wife chose the scallops...

I have just enjoyed an outstanding experience in Bracewell's restaurant; one of those rare moments where words never seem adequate to properly describe the joy and pleasure of the meal. Hats off to exceptional quality food and top quality service. The venue is small with an intimate atmosphere. It is very well presented and located in the centre of St... More

We booked in advance of our arrival on Jersey on the recommendation of a friend, we were not disappointed. As other reviewers have said the restaurant is "cosy" but the food and atmosphere is good. It is a little hidden off the beaten track, but easy to get to when you know where to look.

We ate there twice in a only one-week stay, though we wanted to try out different places: it was just too good, we had to come back! The menu is great, you might find less original and savory ones in Michelin-rated restaurants. The desserts are even better than the main courses, if that is even possible. The service was wonderful,... More

We visited this restaurant because of the reviews but were actually quite disappointed . The food is very much 'home cooked' ,whilst the homemade pasta is good, other ingredients did not seem of the best quality - the Scallops I had as a main course were small and did not have very much taste. Portions are very small so the... More

Found Bracewell's by chance whilst walking the streets in St. Aubin and What a Find. A very small restaurant run by Mary, the enthusiastic owner who has a passion to make you feel at home. Wonderfully cooked food from a imaginative menu, also sushi. Starters, main courses and sweets all very good along with a good choice of wine. I... More

This little restaurant is tucked away, but if you fine it you will not be disappointed, the food and service are fantastic. Highly recommended, but as it is so small you are best booking in advance.

Had our first meal in Bracewells and whilst the menu looked interesting we weren't expecting too much. How wrong we were! My husband had the scallops and I had ravioli they were both cooked to perfection. The sample of rosemary and sea salt focaccia was moist and tasted sublime. The best however was yet to come. The homemade ice creams... More
