There is no doubt this is one of the best placed restaurants on the island, with fantastic views over St Brelade's Bay. The views alone are probably worth the visit, and does add to the price tag.

The service is also excellent, staff are really friendly and helpful, no faults there. However, the food, for me at least, did not live up to the expectation, setting or staff. We had a couple of starters: Chicken popcorn (£7.95 and really not worth it, a bunch of very small, slightly overcooked coated chicken pieces), and the Crab doughnut (similar price) - this was nicer to be honest and had a lovely spicy kick. The main courses were all fine, but not as good as other places on the island. The kids fish and chips was probably the best. We also had the squid and prawn fried platter (around £15 then add £3 or so on for fries) and it was OK, just OK. I had the crab taco, (add new potatoes for £3.50 to the £13.50) and it becomes slightly expensive for what it was. The crab was good, but not overly impressive.

Overall, this place is fine, with reasonable food, but nothing outstanding. There are certainly many better places on the island for the same (or cheaper) prices. However, where this places wins out is the location and view, so you have to accept that you pay slightly more for that.

Brilliant service, really fresh seafood. Amazing crab and oysters, really very tasty.

Great view onto the beach, do call ahead though as it is often full.

Prices aren't cheap but the quality is good.

A must visit.

We came here for seafood. We hadn't booked but the manager kindly found us a table on a busy Saturday evening, then moved us to a better table and we enjoyed 9 excellent oysters with lemon and onions. Then we ordered a Thai seafood curry and a seafood linguine. I think the curry won for taste and flavour but the linguine was very nice as well. If the choice of these two dishes hadn't been made the enticing seafood platters that offered a great choice of fish and shellfish might have been the choice. Owned by the same people as the Oyster Bar next door, on St Brelade's Bay, the interior is perfectly comfortable, but a little less classy/upmarket than its sister restaurant, but also seemingly more reasonably priced. If food is more a priority than decor you will not go wrong here.

Don’t be put off by the fishy name, there are options for everyone. Boys had burgers, I had catch of the day - skate with Jersey Royals, all excellent. Oysters very fresh. Staff are lovely and friendly. Recommended.
