Right on the beach-side with an excellent seafood menu and lovely views of St Brelade beach. The crab dishes are excellent. Particularly like the crab tacho. Nice selection of wines and reasonably priced for such good quality. Service good.

This restaurant is located beside the Oyster Box and is a welcome change. Less formal but with an equally good menu. It is owned by the same Group. Quality food and value for money. We had a great meal and will be back.

Family of 5, window table, portions great. food great. Squid and Jersey Crab Cake Benedict amazing. Seafood linguine and ribs went down particularly well. 3 courses, wine and no holding back just over £100. I think that is huge value.

Managed to obtain an outside table in the spring sunshine and enjoy the view. had a couple of platters, not cheap or long on quantity but very enjoyable. Would have benefited from a supply of bread though.

Ridiculously early. Think old people's home, like to shift everyone out by 9pm so don't bother booking after 8.

You can book online or ring... however as it's extremely popular on certain nights.... there is no guarantee of a table when you walk in if you don't book... book to avoid disappointment
