Stopped for lunch whilst passing by. Food was good with excellent choice, a little expensive though but worth it for the fabulous view. Service was fast but I would have liked a little more of a smile and a welcome - maybe it was just me as I was travelling alone. Good large free car park though and would visit... More

A wonderful restaurant both in the summer and autumn. It was lovely to visit in July when the weather was warm and to be able to sit outside and listen to the sea whilst eating fabulous food. We returned in October and the experience was just as wonderful.

Welcoming proprietor, speedy service, fresh crab sandwiches to die for, plenty of choice for drinks at reasonable prices. Rough and ready wooden furniture outside but ambience was great with good views from the terrace. We noticed that several local residents were using this restaurant - always a good sign.

Have enjoyed many hours sitting outside, enjoying coffee, cake, wine, lunch, great menu, from sandwiches to meals, with excellent patisserie counter. Small inside area if weather inclement.

Having stopped.for ice cream a few times during holidays in Jersey we visited for lunch one day and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food which was freshly made to order (and only included what we asked for which was great!) The view is one of the best you could find whilst eating your meal - and... More

Stumbled upon this cafe by chance, but boy was it worth it. A Spanish style mixed grill which was made up of Ribeye steak, pork belly, chicken, chorizo sausage chips, jersey royals and tomatoes topped with pesto and garlic butter. It was absolute heaven. Fantastic position, overlooking St Brelades Bay. EXCELLENT.

I have been here several times over several years. I love this place. The food is consistently excellent, and the position and views are fantastic. It's the best crab and avocado salad I've ever had - excellent!
