Yesterday we had my daughters christening and had the party at SO Bar on the esplanade! I don't know where to start to thank the staff at how amazing they made our day! Damien the manager was so helpful we went on the Saturday evening at 6pm to set up and didn't leave till 9pm he didn't rush us once and let us take our time and put music on for us...the menu they provide is £4.95 a head and to bulk it up we asked for sandwiches and sausage rolls to bulk it up so it then went to £6.95 a head ( cheapest place still that I have ever found)...when the food came out it was stunning! Everything was home made and there was so much for 30 people (over 50 attending and was still food left over)....all the food was beautifully presented and was so yummy!! We had around 20 children who attended and not once did any of the staff complain about them being too noisy which was lovely because all the children had a ball! We didn't get rushed once to leave either he let us have an amazing day and whatever we needed himself and the staff were there to help!
We have had so many parties before at SO Bar and by far this has been the best one with Damien being the manager! Thank you so much! Cannot wait to have another party there!

While on holiday in Jersey recently, we visited this wonderful bistro-type bar twice in one week! And we will go again, next time we are over. Superb food, a comprehensive menu with something to suit all tastes, great selection of drinks, and attentive staff and dedicated manager! Frequented mainly by local people who are in the know, it is a well kept secret, as we've been coming to Jersey for years and have only just found it.
The food is expertly cooked, full of flavour, and the manager recommended a curry dish which I'd not tried, but was excellent. My wife is allergic to chillies, and the chef prepared one of their dishes without chilli, but which still retained its flavour.....magical!
Nothing is too much trouble, the ambience is excellent, and we can't recommend it highly enough.
Well worth its great reviews and we will certainly return, and recommend it to anyone.

Really enjoyed an eating experience that had a lively atmosphere in a friendly and popular bar plus an oriental fusion of flavours to give an excellent eating experience. They also gad interesting and different burgers if required. Well situated on the Esplanade in St Helier it adds to the variety and quality of eating houses in this resort.

A very different and unique restaurant with an usual but tasty menu.

I really enjoyed my choice of Masaman Curry with came in a soup type bowl which was very unique and extremely tasty.

Want to try something different then this is the place for you!

Thankfully they have started doing snack lunches again, not just meals. The staff are excellent. The choices on the menu cater for everyone which is good. Presentation is good, plus the food is hot ( if ordering a hot meal), quick service. Good value for money. Advise to book ahead as it does get very busy lunch times. Keep up the good work.
