“Great traditional restaurant”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Enjoyed a really nice meal here on a trip to Jersey. The food was good and the service was friendy - it seemed like a traditional family business.

“Great food, ambience and attentive staff”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We ate at this lovely restaurant twice on our 5 day stay on the island. The owner is a very friendly gentleman that takes pride in what he does and this reflects on the customer experience. On leaving after our second dinner night I promised that I would write a review when I returned to the UK as myself and my wife had thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere on both occasions. We opted for the 3 course menu for £20 per head, which is exceptionally good value and they do not skimp on their portions or quality of the produce, which I found incredible. Looking around the restaurant I could see people enjoying their variety of different food and mouthing how delicious it was. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough, it is a hidden gem. Thank you all so much for the great experience and food and I keep up the great work.

“Great food”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We actually ate here twice during our week's stay on Jersey which says something as we normally try to go somewhere different each evening when we are away.
A busy restaurant is always a good sign and this was no exception. Go there and you won't be disappointed.

“Traditional Italian restaurant.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

There's not a lot to say about La Taverna except that it's a traditional Italian restaurant serving good hearty food with friendly service. Not a lot wrong with that. We had a lovely meal and an enjoyable evening. There is also a good selection of half bottles on the wine list, just right if you want more than a glass but don't want to share a whole bottle. We will return on our next visit to Jersey.

“Traditional service”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Away from the sea front most of St Helier seemed to shut down at 6pm so after wandering the streets for a while we chanced upon the Taverne. Given that the streets were deserted we were astonished to find the place packed out but soon realised that this place was seriously good. Service was excellent and there was a good choice of traditional and contemporary dishes. Portions were large and after two courses we were too full for desserts even though they looked very tempting. We saw many people just having a main course. Whilst the specials were good value we felt the main menu was a little expensive and even the house wine was £16 a bottle. A 10% service charge was automatically added to the bill (in theory discretionary but in practice not). Lovely for a special occasion.
