Description: This exceptional restaurant showcases modern British cooking in a classic setting with the emphasis on fresh Jersey produce and superb service. This is exemplified in the A la Carte menu and a daily changing Market Menu featuring the best seasonal ingredients with the freshest taste of the island. New for this year is the Tasting Room - a modern adventure in food and wine. Not forgetting younger guests, the Little Ones menu has a selection of treats and half-sized portions of main menu favourites for budding gourmets. There is also a lounge menu with a lighter offering including sandwiches and salads, while an impressive afternoon tea can be enjoyed year-round in the comfort of the elegant lounge areas or on the sun-drenched terrace in the summer months. Joining The Atlantic in late 2017, Executive Chef Will Holland has worked in Michelin-starred restaurants since the age of 18 and has appeared on numerous national television programmes including as guest chef on Saturday Kitchen.

We have been staying at the Atlantic Hotel for many years & have always been looked after extremely well. Ocean Restaurant now has Will Holland as Executive Head Chef & he has opened The Tasting Room. We enjoyed seven courses which were all beautifully prepared & tasted superb. Jaroslav Sedlacek the Food & Beverage manager paired the wines perfectly with each course. We have found at other restaurants that this is not always successful but the wines chosen for The Tasting Room experience went perfectly with each course & enhanced our dining experience.
We had a lovely evening & will definitely dine there again when we return to Jersey.
The Tasting Room is sure to be a great success for Will Holland & his talented team. It is the best food we have ever eaten at the Atlantic & we very much look forward to returning before too long.

As it was our 25th wedding anniversary we decided to book The Tasting Room. We've been to the Ocean restaurant few times and heard about the tasting room and we've been waiting for a special occasion such as this.
We certainly weren't disappointed from the minute we arrived until we left 5 hours later! We can honestly say that it was one of the most outstanding culinary experiences that we ever had. Every course was explained to us with such enthusiasm and in a relaxed and friendly way by Kamilla.
The executive chef Will Holland even came out and greeted us and explained the intricacies of the dishes that we had been eating.
The menu design by Will uses the best ingredients that Jersey has to offer in such a creative way. The attention to detail and preparation that went into that meal was outstanding, it's a credit to the kitchen and the hotel.
We opted to have the recommended wine selections for each of the courses and again these were perfectly introduced by Steven our Sommelier.
This is fine dining at its very best, well worth the experience. Highly recommended. Thankyou everyone, you really made us feel special and made it a day to remember.

We had dinner here twice during our stay at the Atlantic Hotel. The dining room is bright and 'airy' and over looks the ocean which is visible from most of the tables. The ambience is lively but not noisy and very relaxing for a fine dining restaurant.
Will Holland is a very talented young chef and having experienced his food before we were not disappointed. As we ate here twice the amuse bouche and pre-dessert were changed so we would experience something different. Will goes out of his way to cater for dietary requests too.
We ate from the Al La Carte menu, my favourites being the scallops and the lamb dish but in any case everything is good. The cheese trolley is excellent. The table service by the team is very good and personable.
There is no doubt awards will come for this restaurant with Will and his team creating some great dishes.

We had the a la carte menu and everything about it was superbly done, from the tartar amuse bouche to the simply stunning rhubarb and tarragon dessert.

The cheese board my wife had was fantastic and generous...best we’ve seen for some time.

The service team were exceptional, friendly and efficient and made the visit for me,

If I have one niggle it’s that the bread offering is quite ordinary, could do with a tweak.

Lovely place, superb food, great team.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. The food was very tasty and Will Holland has transferred his experience at Coast to the Ocean providing a real dining experience. The staff were friendly and welcoming. I would recommend the Sunday lunch
