On a recent trip to Jersey we ate in this restaurant twice. If you enjoy fish this is the place to go to when in Jersey. It is a bit difficult to find as it is just inside the entrance to the fish market. Friendly staff and very reasonably priced.

We saw this on tripadvisor for a resent weekend trip to Jersey and we weren't disappointed, if you like fish this is a must, we went for the seafood platter, and it was fantastic, only a small restaurant, so book, it's just inside the fish market, but don't let that put you off, of an evening the way it is set out you wouldn't know, the staff are friendly and helpful, enjoy, we certainly did.

As everyone says, the food at Rosa's is very nice,well cooked and tasty. But their service was diabolical. We had booked in advance rather than risking not getting a table, but we were so disappointed.

We were still waiting for our mains an hour and a half after we arrived. It had taken fifteen minutes from arrival to be given a menu and twenty five minutes to get a drink. By the time our mains arrived, we we had gone beyond hungry and the food tasted nice but the whole experience was tainted. We then ate our mains, were served and eaten dessert and paid all within half an hour, so from one extreme to the other.

It seems there is one chef and if you get the at the wrong time, orders back up and you will have a wait. The people on the table next to us were also really unhappy as they had come back for their second visit but said never again.

Such a shame.

We went here on the basis of the TA reviews and had a bit of a problem finding it : its just inside the fish market entrance on the left.
We got one of the last tables for the night after asking the owners during their own meal (c 5.30) and were so glad we had taken the trouble to find it. The fish was first class as other reviewers have said and the service was excellent bearing in mind that the premises are - to say the least - a bit cramped. We were only staying on Jersey for 4 nights and this was the second; we booked for our last night at the same time as we paid the very reasonable bill.
This is not a restaurant to be missed if you are on Jersey.

Bistro Rosa was also recommended by another hotel guest. We didn't go there last year because its location in the fish market makes it look like a market cafe - but nothing could be further from the truth. The service is good, friendly and quick and the quality of the food is excellent. My wife was fascinated to watch the chef at work - and work he did, non-stop for the time we were there. The wine list isn't extensive but it's perfectly adequate for our needs. Well worth visiting.
