Service was excellent from very friendly staff, we just had a starter and main, unfortunately the whitebait wasn’t available so I ordered the coquile for a starter which was very pleasant. I had the rack of lamb for a main which came as four French trimmed cutlets cooked perfectly to medium rare as requested, this came with sautéed potatoes rice, green beans and carrots. It’s been a long time since I had lamb as good as that. We didn’t have any puddings as we had sufficient from the main and starter. My wife had the pan fried scallop with pan fried bacon and garlic and thoroughly enjoyed them, yet more good cooking. For a main she had beef medallions in a Madeira sauce, cooked medium rare and very nice. I’d thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

We had dinner on the 3rd September. The staff were very friendly and helpful.There was a large table just about to order but the lady serving us made sure our order was in first so that we would not have to wait too long. Nice relaxing atmosphere and the phone was excellent. Would definitely recommend it

Make sure you book !! Tables well spaced and a good size. A very nice bottle of wine and 2 excellent main courses. The potatoes and veg could have fed 4 people !! Angela was our main server, she was attentive and engaging, even down to a tip on a shortcut walk back to St Helier, avoiding the Fort Regent Tunnel.
We saw a lot of people turned away on our visit on a Monday night so ---make sure you book !!

My wife was recommended this restaurant by a friend prior to our trip to Jersey. So glad we took their advice. One of my favourite restaurants in Jersey. Pre booked on both visits, restaurant has a very relaxed ambiance great service throughout friendly but professional and the food is outstanding potions are generous as well, quality and quantity you really do get it all and deliciously cooked food. Definitely worth a visit located just opposite the pier.

This Portuguese restaurant is in a great place opposite the pier. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. We had different mains and they were very good. The portions are generous we had rice, chips and salad as included side dishes.
