Very nice menu which did not disapoint. We chose from the special menu and we're presently surprised by the quality of the food served. The wine menu wasn't overpriced which was also a plesent change. The waiting staff were very attentive and pleasant with it.

Basically that really...had to wait and age for the drinks order to arrive and then never asked the whole evening if we wanted more. Each course had to wait far too long. In my book even if the food is good service can ruin the evening. Plenty of waitresses, the place wasn't overly busy. Not enough kitchen staff maybe? Seems... More

Slow to get served. To be fair to them, they did tell us at the start of the evening that serving time was about 30 minutes. Other than that, the staff were polite and friendly, the food hot and delicious. As there were enough waiting staff I presume that they were a member short in the kitchen, hopefully this was...

Grandes Rocques Bistro consistently delivers fantastic food of a very high standard. In my opinion this restaurant offers the best steaks in Guernsey and my wife and I have never been disappointed. Garlic prawns to start and a fillet steak with pepper sauce is my usual "go to" and, as I have told the staff at Grandes Rocques Bistro, these... More

On entering I realised that this isn't really my sort of place to be fair. You enter into a pub, with the restaurant above via an open staircase. The decor is very dated, but that's not necessarily a problem I guess, but I think it would attract more repeat business if it had a revamp. The waiting staff were very... More

I haven't been to GR Bistro for years but after hearing friends very positive feedback thought we'd give it a go. Very glad we did, waiting staff were warm and friendly and the service excellent. The food. I had one of the best ribeye steaks I've had for years and hubby had the crispy chili beef which was an enormous... More

We called here by chance one evening and although it was quite busy we eventually got a table which was upstairs in the lovely little restaurant. We waited quite a while for our food but as we hadn't pre-booked we didn't mind the wait. The view is lovely as you can see the beach/sea and the ambience was nice. The... More

Just revisited these premises after a 12 months and have to say that whilst the decor is in need of some TLC, the food was a very good standard and staff were excellent all in all very good value for money. Will be back and not so long between visits next time
