Waitress was so rude and dismissive we decided to leave and not eat here. Won't bother returning....

Food is always very good! However, we had to wait quite a long time to be seated - the staff talked between themselves, even looked at us but nobody was willing to give us a seat. after long time a waiter asked us to seat. I asked whether they had J2O, the answer was yes but instead of this a... More

This place was recommended to us by locals and despite driving passed the place as the road sign is a little hidden we went for some late lunch. The location is superb, the venue right up our street....surfey but not too surfey. The food was excellent but that is where the praise ends. The staff made us feel most unwelcome... More

A regular spot when visiting Jersey and a great choice for any time of the day with good menus covering breakfast through to dinner. Enjoyed an excellent brunch, good value and good, efficient service! The place is deservedly popular and always busy, the fabulous views and good parking also help. A great spot for food throughout the day, never been... More

Every time I visit family in Jersey we hit El Tico for breakfast at least once. They have a great selection of breakfasts and the classic English breakfast is great. Best of all is the bacon and blood pudding. The location cannot be beat.

Every time I visit Jersey I can't miss this place. It's a bit pricey for a simple beach place but their hamburgers are delicious - real meat probably from Jersey grazing herds. There's a good choice of vegetarian and Asian food too. When it's packed it can get a bit noisy and you're seated on large tables with other people.... More

I ate here for a business lunch, it was one of the best Tempura King Prawns I have ever had, The staff were very friendly and the prices were good. I can imagine in the summer it would be packed to the rafters. The view was great. You could quite easily drive past this place without noticing it, lucky for... More

Found this place out of pure luck as where we were going originally was closed. Lucky for us!! This place is right by the sea and on the day we had lunch the sea was calm and the sky was blue.. we had the steamed mussels and prawns in tempura batter.. all I can say is this was the best... More
