Description: In the heart of town you'll find our bustling restaurant and terrace bar: delicious food to warm your heart and delight your palate, from Irish and British meats to local seafood cooked to order. In the historic Weighbridge area, next to the Jersey Museum, you’ll find one of the most popular restaurants in St Helier. Locals affectionately refer to the spot as the 'Museum Brasserie'; a cosy retreat with vibrant food in a lively atmosphere. Here business people discuss the markets over lunch and in the summer the Terrace Bar lights up and turns into a hot spot where people chill out with good tunes with friends. Dinner is either a set menu or a la carte. Fusions of fish and Eastern spices make the food exciting and delicious. This is the place to go for good hearty food with some unexpected twists. The desserts are to die for!

“good food great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Having looked at reviews prior to visiting Jersey this was the first restaurant my wife and i visited. We chose the tennerfest menu and was not disappointed. Good traditional cooking and reasonably priced wine. Fairly quiet on the Thursday evening we visited but staff were attentive and very friendly. Situated near the Jersey museum I can fully recommend a visit and will definitely return.

“Great little restaurant, worth looking into!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Visited midweek. Quiet and not very buzzy. The staff were pleasant and friendly, and the tables nicely spaced apart. Overall a pleasant venue. The food was lovely with some nice twists on classics. We both chose from the tennerfest menu, and agreed it was one of the more original tennerfest menus we'd seen. This restaurant deserves to be busier. At night it isn't very obvious from the street as it's quite darkly lit, especially compared to the Royal Yacht Hotel next door, which is a shame as it's well worth a visit. A really pleasant experience.

“Well cooked lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Went here to try and book for the evening but unfortunately they were fully booked. We decided to stay for lunch and were glad we did. I had an excellent steak sandwich and hubby had the steak - he was impressed with the choice of sizes, a smaller size available, perfect for lunch. They were well cooked and from where we sat we could see into the kitchen. Just wish we'd been more organised and booked for an evening meal and then we could have tried the tennerfest set menu as well! It is hidden down the side of the jersey museum and has some outside seating - unfortunately it was raining on the day we visited and not warm enough to use those seats.
