Such a cool little place to have either lunch or dinner while looking out over the beautiful beach here. I love that they don't take reservations they just turn table spots as quickly as possible whilst not pushing people out. Very well managed. The food is tasty and well cooked with a good vegetarian offering including specials. A large team... More

16 of us had worked up an appetite walking the coast path from St Aubin and had heard great things about El Tico's. The main restaurant couldn't fit us in but they managed to find us a table big enough on the patio overlooking the beach. The service was good and the menu had something for everybody. It took a...

Ten of us booked the boardroom for Saturday lunch. The view was stunning, as was the food (good quality, variety and portions) and the service. A superb beach cafe well worth a visit.

Food is good location is fantastic right on the beach front, staff not really bothered had to wait a while for order, food and when finished we sat with empty played with staff walking past us, not sure if it was the changeover on shift as was about 3pm. Over all was an average lunch nothing to shout about
