We had a fantastic lunch at The Jetty, Andre looked after us all brilliantly, making for a mellow un-rushed celebration. The food was excellent as ever and the service spot on for the day, thanks to all, we will be back soon I hope

Everything about our visit was first rate, the food was excellent but above all the service was some the best that I have experienced.

My wife and I had a most wonderful lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our waiter Andre was charming, relaxed and helpful with our choices and made our visit even more enjoyable. Food was good too! We'd like to come back...

We had a truly amazing lunch experience again at the Jetty. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves; the food was absolutely top-class and we’re so well looked after by all of the staff - Karol in particular went out of his way to make our multiple birthdays...event even more special.More

The food as always was fantastic, with friendly service in a great location. We were looked after very well by Andre, fully supported by the waitresses. My only small comment would be it took a little while at the start to order our drinks. But...that aside we had a great lunch & hope to be back soon. Thanks to the front of house, & of course to the chefs too.More

Can't fault the location or the friendly staff. Menu was interesting. Food itself was a little disappointing, some of the seafood clearly not fresh on the day, but some great dishes anyway. A bit expensive therefore.

Excellent warm welcome from the management team. Beautiful setting and our waiter Andre was exceptionally amazing. The service Andre provided was second to none and very polite. The food was delicious and exceptionally well prepared and served with professionalism and perfection. I believe the evening...could not of been any more perfect and believe the team, especially Andre with his courtesy and service made my evening absolutely exceptionally. I highly recommend The Jetty at Christchurch and certainly worth booking as they looked so busy. Atmosphere was cracking and certainly COVID friendly in The Jetty. I thank you all and would love to return one day! Regards Leon BoyceMore

The service could not have been better. I am virtually GF and dairy free - a difficult combination for any restaurant, but our waiter, Andre, and the Chef managed it perfectly. Checking at each stage whether the course I had chosen was appropriate. Perfect. We...were eating at lunchtime and were given a beautiful table overlooking the sea with the late summer sun reflecting off the water. Magical Oh and the food itself: imaginative with each element of each course beautifully cooked and presented, using GF alternatives. An exception lunch, well deserving of all the plaudits previous diners have givenMore

We went to the Jetty today for lunch and had a really super meal for 5 people. We all had meals from the daily fish specials and they were excellent. The mussels for starter were a good size and the sauce lovely flavoured. Both the...cheese soufflé and the lobster thermidor soufflé were lighter than air. The Dover Sole for main was filleted for 2 of us and left whole for 1 and the flavour was excellent. The sea bass and sea bream dishes were also superb. We had very attentive service by Andre, which was not overly fussy, just friendly and the level needed. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It’s not a cheap option but the standard of food, ambience and service mean it’s reasonable valueMore
