From some of the best fine dining in the British Isles to a  great Thai curry.

Here are our Top 10 Restaurants in St Helier:

  

AROMAS:

A locals favourite close to the seafront. Big portions and great value.

SAMPLE DISH: Roast Rack of Lamb with a Garlic & Rosemary Red Wine Sauce

 

BISTRO ROSA:

A very small unassuming restaurant located in the fish market in the centre of town specialising in, unsurprisingly, seafood. In fact some of the best seafood dishes in Jersey, and that's saying something. One of the  best creme brulees you've ever eaten!

SAMPLE DISH: Half Sea Bass with Scallops in a light garlic butter.

 

BOHEMIA RESTAURANT:

Definitely one of the top restaurants in St Helier and indeed in the British Isles.  Modern decor, world class cooking and service. Not cheap but the Daily Mail newspaper named it Best Value Michelin Star restaurant in Britain!

CAFE SPICE:

The best Indian restaurant in Jersey. Hotel delivery service.

SAMPLE DISH: Garlic Chilli Chicken 

 

GREEN OLIVE:

Probably the best vegetarian dishes in town, but the seafood dishes are excellent too. All beautifully presented in a fresh, modern but cozy ambiance with friendly attentive service.

LA CAPANNINA:

Looking for modern Italian food in a contemporary setting? Then this  centrally located Italian restaurant isn't the place for you. It has been around for decades giving the phrase 'old fashioned' a good name. Excellent service. Food is always good- we love the suckling pig- and the best selection of Italian wine on the island.

SAMPLE DISH:  Prawn Provençal with caper and olive sauce

 

LA TAVERNE:

Right opposite the town hall is this always busy Italian/ French restaurant. Friendly welcome, good service and a great buzzy atmosphere.

SAMPLE DISH: Scallops, White Wine, Lemon, Worcester Sauce

Here are our Top 5 recommendations for dinner in Jersey:

 

AL FRESCO:

On a Summer's evening you would be hard you would be hard pressed to find a more romantic setting than the terrace at Suma's with its view of the small harbour and magnificent Mont Orgueil Castle. Food isn't too bad, in fact it's excellent.

 

BEACHFRONT CASUAL:

The Crab Shack on the beautiful St Brelade's Bay has good food and a laid back vibe with outside seating steps away from the sand.

 

FOODIE FEAST:

The Michelin star Ocean Restaurant at The Atlantic Hotel is probably the highest standard food on the island with service to match! 

 

SEAFOOD WITH A SEA VIEW:

A table outside Green Island Restaurant looking over the small beach at the sunset  is a great place to enjoy wonderful Mediterranean influenced food on a Summers evening.

 

SPECIAL OCCASION:

First choice would have to be the restaurant at Longueville Manor. In Winter dine in the 16th century oak panelled room, in Summer choose the Garden Room. Food is beautifully presented and tastes even better, with the best of the  local produce used imaginatively accompanied by an extensive and well chosen wine list. Service is excellent. [Menus here...]

 


 

Here are our recommendations for lunch in Jersey:

 

BUSINESS LUNCH:

Ormer has the central town location, Michelin starred restaurant, excellent wine list and is dressed to impress. For those not on generous expense accounts the set price menu offers good value.

 

BEACH BRUNCH:

Right on the beachfront at St Ouen's Bay, El Tico is our favourite place for Sunday brunch. Why? Because you can eat great food with this view.

 

BEACH LUNCH:

Green Island Restaurant has been a locals favorite for years, especially good seafood dishes a stones throw from the beach. Great place to sample local oysters

 

LADIES WHO LUNCH:

Next door to the market Banjo- pictured above- is a perfect place to stop off for a light lunch after a mornings retail therapy. 

 

PUB LUNCH:

La Pulente has good fish & chips and tables outside for a stunning view of  St Ouen's Bay

 

SUMMER BREEZE:

For those lazy hazy days of summer book a table al fresco on the terrace at Sumas and enjoy excellent food with a front row  view of Gorey Harbour & Castle.

 

SPECIAL OCCASION:

Longueville Manor would be our first choice every time. Extremely high quality of food and wine, relaxed ambiance, first class  service and a beautiful restaurant decorated with taste

 

SUNDAY LUNCH:

Chateau La Chaire wins our vote as not only is it a charming hotel with good service and great food, but you can also walk off lunch in their beautiful gardens or stroll down to the picturesque harbour.

 

TOWN LUNCH:

So many good options. But we are going to choose Tiffin overlooking the Marina for those sunny Spring and Summer days .

In Winter we recommend the Michelin Starred Bohemia.

 

VALUE WITH A VIEW:

Cycle out to the Old Station Cafe on Victoria Avenue by Millbrook for great value all day English Breakfasts, great Thai Specials in the evening in Summer and a knockout view.
