There are also four beautifully decorated bedrooms for overnight stays.

“Very, very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

I was surprised to note how low this restaurant ranked in St Helier on tripadvisor as our entire team found this restaurant very good. The food was incredibly tasty, from the hamburgers to the steak to the pork belly- we all loved it. The wine list is great and the service attentive. And then there is the incredibly strange decor.... A must see. The bathroom will stop you in your tracks. I found our evening spent here incredibly enjoyable and can recommend this restaurant to all.

“Lunchtime at Banjo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

I visited Banjo restaurant with a client for a midweek lunch. The restaurant was recommended by my client and it was my first visit. The building was very elegant and the interior decor stylish. The food and service were also very good, and I particularly enjoyed the crab gazpacho starter. I left with a very positive overall impression of my visit. I would definitely visit again if in the area.

“Perfect private dining venue in the centre of St Helier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We held an event in the Lempriere room at Banjo for a group. The planning, pre-orders and flexibility on the arrangements were excellent. The service for the event was seamless and the 3-courses were all delicious. This is a perfect, central location of hold an event and I will definitely use their services again.
