“Go for the Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We were staying locally so a walk to the beach wasn't any trouble but it is down a steep hill. The beach is largely stoned pebbles and the outside seating area for the Cafe overlooks the bay. It's simply gorgeous.

The food was largely good although pricey. I must add that the "Seafood Sandwich" stood out as the signature dish and was both delicious and worth the extra price it commanded. Kids options were present which was great and service time was quick.

I recommend heading down for a special lunch but I wouldn't plan to visit more than once (myself) as the menu was limited for my tastes.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

They have a superb range of wines and are always willing to let you try. A glass of champagne is possible if you wish. Food is simple and limited but always excellent. One of the best in Guernsey

“Our local!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

We are lucky enough to live 7 minutes walk from Fermain Beach Cafe and to say it is our regular is somewhat of an understatement as we are there most days! Everything from the quality coffee to the simple yet superb food available make this one of the best beach restaurants in the world! A place to chill and enjoy!

“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

The food is very good. The famous crab sandwich lives up to its expectations, the prawn sandwiches were amazing, the gnocchi was excellent and the tomato and mozzarella salad was exceptional. The only reason it wasn't a five was that we could not experience the full glory as the weather wasn't the nicest, but then that's not their fault.
