The meal we had at La Fregate was not as good as we have found in the past. My husband requested fillet steak with chunky chips and vegetables. My sister due to ill health requested an item from the starter menu but requested it be given to her as a main meal. I had salmon. We also ordered a dessert... More

We visited as a family to celebrate a birthday. A window table with the best view you can get of St Peter Port Harbour and the islands beyond. The mixed fish platter as a starter is exceptional, including smoked scallop and beautiful Guernsey crab. My wife had what she described as the best main course fish she has had for... More

Sorry, but not a lot of good things to say about our visit this time. The restaurant seemed cold as we're sat in a drafty entrance to the kitchen on a awkward table where we had to fight with the table legs for comfort. The wine as poored without the opportunity to taste. The food was cold in the plates... More

My partner and I were treated to lunch by his parents, who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. We were welcomed and ordered drinks in the lounge area while we perused the menu. The fish and seafood here are wonderful, so we all opted for the brill main course. Oh no, the brill had run out so, we had to... More

We've eaten really excellent and innovative meals at La Fregate on many occasions and this was no exception. Yet may I make a request? Every dish we were served came on what felt like red-hot plates. Far, far too hot to touch. The problem was that food continued to be cooked rather than be kept warm. Can the dish warmer... More

This is a gem of a restaurant - the food is great and the staff are superb - warm, welcoming, great hosts. Definitely recommend a visit while you're on the island

Yes it really is that good. Go for lunch if you can - its quieter and you can see Castle Cornet nestling in the bay as you can see the rest of St Peter Port harbour. With so few street lights the views are much more limited at night time. Do you like sea food....then this is the place for... More

We ate in the restaurant as guests of the hotel. The food is excellent: ingredients, preparation, cooking and presentation. The hotel does not offer half board which is unusual and irritating: thus one has to choose from the fixed price (2 course or 3 course) or a la carte menus. The former only changes once per month and so if... More

This restaurant is part of the La Fregate Hotel and is open to other guests. The outside terrace next to the bar and restaurant has great views over the town and harbour and is approached via a path through terraced gardens. The service is very good with lots of waiters to ensure that everyone has impeccable service. The star of... More

I've eaten at La Fregate many times and it seemed to be a good choice to celebrate a birthday. What a disappointment. The food was generally fine but the level of service was appalling. We had to wait 15 minutes for a drink and then it wasn't as ordered. There were plenty of staff milling around but during dinner we... More
