Went here for breakfast & to admire the view, the view certainly didn't disappoint but that's as far as it goes. Service was incredibly slow, the bacon dry and the the toast soggy, highlight were the poached eggs which were very good. Filter coffee was ok, however the cappuccino was overpriced & unpleasant. I ordered a flat black coffee and... More

This is one of our favourite breakfast haunts. Comfortable enough to share with friends and family, or just to read the papers on your own. Can be very crowded due to being excellent. Staff are not afraid to be quite direct at times. Great food, usually quick, and a view to die for.

We enjoyed a vey nice, warm and comfortable Englishbreakfast by the sea in this warm and friendly place. Winter Walks in Sainte Brelade can be freezing, we decided to stop by this place. The coverd and heated terrasse allowed us a great view, a nice meal and an overall great family experience. Thank you

I ordered two cups of filter coffee on a quiet Tuesday lunchtime in December. I could not believe my eyes as the waitress pumped the coffee from a flask into the cups and heated it through with the steam pipe from the milk frother. I asked the manageress how fresh the coffee was and she proudly announced that they had... More

Stopped for lunch whilst passing by. Food was good with excellent choice, a little expensive though but worth it for the fabulous view. Service was fast but I would have liked a little more of a smile and a welcome - maybe it was just me as I was travelling alone. Good large free car park though and would visit... More

A wonderful restaurant both in the summer and autumn. It was lovely to visit in July when the weather was warm and to be able to sit outside and listen to the sea whilst eating fabulous food. We returned in October and the experience was just as wonderful.

Welcoming proprietor, speedy service, fresh crab sandwiches to die for, plenty of choice for drinks at reasonable prices. Rough and ready wooden furniture outside but ambience was great with good views from the terrace. We noticed that several local residents were using this restaurant - always a good sign.

Have enjoyed many hours sitting outside, enjoying coffee, cake, wine, lunch, great menu, from sandwiches to meals, with excellent patisserie counter. Small inside area if weather inclement.

Having stopped.for ice cream a few times during holidays in Jersey we visited for lunch one day and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food which was freshly made to order (and only included what we asked for which was great!) The view is one of the best you could find whilst eating your meal - and... More
