Stopped for a cup of tea and sat on wooden bench outside, ordered tea for two which we were informed would be in mugs. They came two thirds full of water with a tea bag in. When we went to pay we were charged £5.70. Now I understand it is in a prime location but the price was far to... More

We visited to enjoy a fabulous view of the beach and sea and enjoyed that the most by sitting outside. The restaurant is casual. The prices a bit higher than normal due to the location. My friend and I choose Salads that were fresh and tasty, a bit on the small side with the toppings. Service was fast and friendly.... More

Eat here when we visited yesterday and was desperate to try the local seafood. Ordered a cranache crab and I was not disappointed! The thing was huge. It came out with a lovely side salad and all the utensils to break him apart and devour. At first I was a bit uncertain of making a noise and mess by smashing... More

Sitting on the far western end of the promenade in St. Brelade's Bay, the Crab Shack is the closest unit to the public toilets ( we didn't bother using theirs inside) . It has seating both outside under awning and inside and offers the expected fayre of a cafe/bistro with an Italian 'feel' and advertises its use of locally-sourced sea... More

Whilst walking along the boardwalk we happened to see this beachside restaurant. I managed to get the last reservation for that evening. What a treat? This is a very casual place with quirky fishy items on the walls and funny sayings. The tables are very casually set with cutlery in containers and condiments with them. I ordered a seafood platter... More
