This is the most French place we have ever visited outside France. A beautiful little bistro with a typically French menu featuring local meat, fish and produce. I had fish soup followed by Turbot en Cocotte. A beautiful piece of turbot, beautifully cooked with a meaty sauce and new potatoes. My wife had perfect scallops and venison wrapped in pancetta - again perfectly cooked. We had cafe gourmand which involved a coffee and three tiny desserts.

Service was a trifle hit and miss but they quickly picked up on errors. One lovely feature is that the wine list is on a tablet so it is much easier to navigate and find out about the various wines. And a Provencale rose for £19 is incredibly cheap but fabulously tasty.

The first restaurant in the town to choose.

What a find! On a cold and rainy day, we stumbled upon this little Parisian haven which exuded charm, character and above all extraordinary quality. Tarte tartin was the best I've had we had a phenomenal almond pastry too. Best coffee on the island of course. First class, we will return...

This traditional bistro is in two parts, a cafe and a bistro. We ate in the bistro. We were encouraged when, asking a young policewoman where we could find it, her first words were "Good choice!".
Food-wise we had onion soup and seared scallops for starters, with coq au vin and moules to follow. All was nicely cooked and presented by the young staff, all of whom I think were French.
The decor is rustic french, and you could be mistaken for thinking you were really in France. We were seated next to a hotel owner from Sark, and he rated it as the best restaurant in Guernsey. Booking is essential.

Very good at what it does, which is typically French and sometimes Parisian service. Not my cup of tea but food was good last time I ate there.
