When travelling to Jersey, one thing to be sure of bringing with you is a healthy appetite. The island bursts with flavour from abundant local produce and rich creamy milk to seafood straight from the island’s clear waters. When it comes to eating out, be it beach cafes or chic restaurants, farm stalls or village delis, afternoon tea or fish ‘n’ chips, Jersey is packed with amazing eating experiences. Add to this a range of places to quench your thirst including contemporary cocktail bars and olde worlde country pubs. We’ve highlighted just a few of our favourite eateries around the island:-
Le Braye Café: A family-owned local institution, serving up local seasonal flavours, discover great all-day dining and a tasty brunch menu as well as panoramic views of expansive St Ouen’s Bay from the al fresco terrace. The children can play in the sandpit while you sit back with a cuppa and refuel for your next adventure.
The Portelet Inn: A cold beer at the end of the day and a pirate-themed play area for the children mean that everyone’s happy at the Portelet Inn. The menu features straightforward crowd-pleasing classics which can be followed up with Ice Cream Factory desserts for the kids. There’s an idyllic terrace for al fresco dining on warm evenings or a welcoming fire on chillier nights.
Jersey Crab Shack: Located out east overlooking the castle in Gorey, out west in the beautiful St Brelade’s Bay or, centrally in St Helier. Celebrating Jersey and its local produce at every opportunity, this is relaxed family dining without scrimping on quality and service.
El Tico’s: Where better to pull up a deckchair for a sundowner or to grab a table for dinner, than El Tico’s. Enjoy great world flavours like fish tacos, ribs and curries using the island’s rich local produce.
The Hungry Man: Nestled on the harbour wall in Rozel Bay, the Hungry Man offers a wide range of food, from gourmet burgers to crab sandwiches and delicious homemade cakes. All seating is al fresco, while the atmosphere is relaxed and unhurried.
