We were staying at the OGH so ate in the Brasserie on our first night. The food was excellent and service outstanding. Fine dining, but well worth the little extra!

A great place to have a quality lunch in an elegant brasserie. I usually have the lobster / crayfish roll.

Beautiful dining room with helpful and attentive service, but with only 2 couples eating, the atmopsphere was stwerile and lacking in atmosphere. Probably much better later in the season

Excellent scallops and sea bass. Lobster soup overwhelmed by bacon. Lamb maybe too pink. Service very attentive, maybe to much so.

One of Guernsey's top hotels situated in the heart of town. Great service, fabulous food and wonderful rooms overlooking the Castle and coast. They also have a swimming pool in the grounds for those warm summer stays. Walking distance from all the local amenities too. Go on .... spoil yourself!

We stayed at OGH, so eating here was an easy choice. Plenty of choice, food freshly prepared, wine list a bit pricy. Breakfast is superb.

Having arrived fairly late in the day, during our visit to Guernsey, we decided that we would eat in the Brasserie, the main restaurant of the OGH hotel. As it turned out, it was the best meal that we had during our short Guernsey stay. The Brasserie is a pleasant dining area and the service/pace of meal was just right.... More
