Lunch on the terrace in the sunshine, overlooking the beach. Had an amazing, local, crab salad which was so fresh, it was a wonderful place to be.

Having had a disappointing meal in a totally unconnected seafood restaurant the night before, we headed to the St Brelades Crab Shack on a Sunday lunchtime of the bank holiday weekend to get our seafood 'fix'. We have previously eaten in the Gorey Crab Shack and the Oyster Box so our expectations were high. Turning up early, we were shown... More

Lovely restaurant right on the waterfront. We had booked a table and were lucky enough to be given one in the window, where we could sit and watch the sun go down whilst we ate. The restaurant has a very relaxed, lively atmosphere. Food was great, very fresh ingredients and well prepared. Lots of seafood as you would imagine but... More

Called one evening for a casual dinner and didn't realise that they closed earlier than most places close by. Non the less we were made welcome & shown to a table with the most spectacular view of the beach. My crab salad was the best I'd had so far on the island, with some texture from the seeds & sweetcorn... More

This is a super restaurant. Their crab salads and linguine with prawns, mussels, squid is wonderful. Lovely staff, so helpful. Shame it shuts on Monday evenings, so we could only go there once. This lovely restaurant overlooks wonderful St. Brelades Bay, so you have ocean views. You have to book and request table. This was the BEST restaurant we went... More

Had a lovely lunch here. The food was delicious and we thought it was reasonably priced considering the location. Sat outside in the sunshine looking over the bay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hope to return one day!

This is the casual dining sister to the Oyster Box and we had two good nights enjoying the fresh seafood, salads and new season Jersey Royal potatoes. The second night we were remembered and welcomed personally despite the restaurant being fully booked both nights. We were also given a super table the second night looking directly out to sea which... More
