Yes it really is that good. Go for lunch if you can - its quieter and you can see Castle Cornet nestling in the bay as you can see the rest of St Peter Port harbour. With so few street lights the views are much more limited at night time. Do you like sea food....then this is the place for... More

We ate in the restaurant as guests of the hotel. The food is excellent: ingredients, preparation, cooking and presentation. The hotel does not offer half board which is unusual and irritating: thus one has to choose from the fixed price (2 course or 3 course) or a la carte menus. The former only changes once per month and so if... More

This restaurant is part of the La Fregate Hotel and is open to other guests. The outside terrace next to the bar and restaurant has great views over the town and harbour and is approached via a path through terraced gardens. The service is very good with lots of waiters to ensure that everyone has impeccable service. The star of... More

I've eaten at La Fregate many times and it seemed to be a good choice to celebrate a birthday. What a disappointment. The food was generally fine but the level of service was appalling. We had to wait 15 minutes for a drink and then it wasn't as ordered. There were plenty of staff milling around but during dinner we... More

We had room 302 in the new wing with French doors onto a shared balcony with an amazing view of Herm, Sark and the north of the port. The room is spacious with a large flat screen tv, beautiful bathroom and a cubby hole with hanging space, drawers, trouser press and tea/coffee making facilities. The room is serviced twice a...

Fantastic service, lovely food and views over the Castle. All waiting staff are always very attentive and took careful note of all of our requirements. The atmosphere lacks a bit but the views make up for it. Expensive but worth it!

We ate Sunday lunch here recently on a gloriously hot and sunny afternoon when the view from the outside terrace is stunning and beautiful. By having the audacity to sit in the sunshine we clearly flummoxed the waiters as our initial service was appalling; none of the waiters wished to take a drink order nor to supply menus and we...

I have reviewed the Fregate before and gave it 5 stars as it really was a faultless meal. However, a year or so later, it was a very different story, which is really disappointing. It is expensive, but as the quality is normally very good and you pay for what you get, I booked this for a very special occasion.... More

Really enjoyed our lunch to celebrate my mother in law's 80th birthday. There were 5 of us including a 7 year old and we were made to feel very welcome. The room is light and bright, with ample space between the tables which is important to me. There are wonderful views out to the harbour, sea and castle. The food... More

We had a meal here recently with family. The service on arrival was impeccable. The food served was sublime and the views wonderful. However once our main courses had been served the waiters seemed to think their job was done. We had to request everything after this and one of the waiters who we couldn't find must have been for...
