“Great view, lovely late lunch”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We recently enjoyed a lazy, late lunch on the alfresco terrace overlooking the beautiful harbour of St Aubin. A real sun trap when it’s warm and packed with like-minded locals and tourists enjoying the view and ambiance.
The waiters were attentive and served us promptly. We opted for the chicken burger with a side order of onion rings and a couple of pear ciders. We were very impressed by the chicken burgers, lovely succulent chicken fillets used, tasty bun and non-greasy chips. The onion rings were huge and made using a light tempura batter, one criticism if anything; they were a little too greasy for my liking but that’s my personal preference so don’t be put off, try them for yourself.
We had a slight hiccup when we came to pay the bill, we had been charged for two portions of onion rings not one as ordered but after pointing this out to our waiter, he quickly realized the error and got it deducted immediately without any argument. That saved a really lovely experience from being spoilt at the end.

“Nice lunch overlooking the Harbor”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We walked here from St Helier (around 5km) and found a table overlooking the harbor, we opted for a light lunch, we had a roll with chicken and bacon and one with prawns.
Both were freshly prepared and aside from an unanticipated anchovie in the chicken and bacon roll the food was very good and reasonably priced.

We liked the setting so much that we visited again on our final day - beautiful setting and good value for money

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Having been a client of this Bar/Restaurant since it opened, I visit my daughter who lives in the village regularly, I am yet again disappointed at the rude and abrupt confrontation I have just endured in the upper deck area, with the bar person! I have just read Ross the managers desires, on the web site, for patrons to enjoy the atmosphere as much as they enjoy providing it, well I think that he has missed out a few of his employees during staff briefings. The Boat House is not the only bar/restaurant in St Aubin, and I am sure the others will relish the opportunity to enhance their businesses at the expenses of the Boat House, by welcoming guests who walk out as I did rather than endure this quality of service.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Excellent bar you have to come here. We have been to Jersey numerous times and always come here. My partner and I are new parents so we came here with our new baby and our in laws. The staff were great very helpful and assisting with the baby and her pram. Food was excellent and the atmosphere as always. Nice to sit outside but we chose a seat inside as it was so hot for the baby so we found a seat inside which was cooler. Excellent location and we will come again.
