We were recommended this restaurant by the lady looking after the shipwreck museum and we were certainly not disappointed. During our 4-night stay on Guernsey, we managed to have morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner at this restaurant. Real ale as well which was a nice bonus.

Superb location (relatively accessible by Guernsey standards!) and run by a lovely Portuguese family. For dinner, we had the sea bass for two to share and it was absolutely magnificent. The beef looked magnificent also.

Highly recommended.

Thank Alan E

We went into this place in a lovely setting to get afternoon drinks and a snack. We sat down and eventually after 5 minutes of sitting around I asked for a menu... The waitress said "yes" and then did nothing. Eventually a woman who was possibly the owner came over and asked us what we wanted. We asked for a menu? And were then told kitchen was shut (which is fine but surely they still have a menu for cakes and stuff.... No.... We were then shown the small stand of cakes, and taken out back and shown the ice cream freezer. We asked for cake and coffee... No idea how much any of this was. Another couple seemed to have tea and scones but god know how that was obtainable. We then sat watching countless other couples coming in and having the same bizarre baffling experience. In their defence the cakes and coffee were actually very nice but the service was confusing and unfriendly which ruined the experience.

We were recommended here and didn't expect what was on offer. We really thought we were going to a small seaside cafe, how wrong can you be. Very warmly greeted to a lovely friendly casual restaurant. The food was amazing and everything we saw being served looked fabulous, fresh and wholesome.

We called in at Le Gouffre for a light sandwich lunch whilst out for a cliff walk but one look at the menu told us we had stumbled across somewhere special. My husband had the lobster linguine and green salad and I had a goats cheese salad, both meals were perfect, very tasty and good value for money. Hopefully we will be able to return for dinner before the end of our holiday. The restaurant is in a perfect location nestled in a little valley with sea views, it's very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. I look forward to a return visit.
