The Best Restaurants in Jersey

9 Restaurants
The largest of the Channel Islands, and with a distinctly Gallic influence due to its proximity to France, Jersey offers a range of appealing restaurants for locals and beach-bound holidaymakers alike. Alongside the historical sites and magnificent coastline, there are plenty of restaurants showcasing the wonderful produce of Jersey. In addition to a host of fish and shellfish caught off its shores, the island is famed for its Jersey Royal potatoes that are unique to the area. We’ve picked out some of the finest food to be found in this lovely summer destination.

Bass and Lobster
Gorey Coast Road, JE3 6EU Gorey
££ · Traditional Cuisine

This brightly painted former roadside pub has slowly morphed into a bistro-style neighbourhood restaurant over the years. It’s a hit with those who live on the island and you can understand why, given the warm welcome offered by the chatty, smiling team. The chefs know what they’re doing with both classic dishes and pubby favourites; check out the daily specials if you fancy some freshly caught fish or in-season game.

Green Street, JE2 4UH Saint Helier
££££ · Modern Cuisine

There is an air of understated elegance at Michelin-Starred Bohemia. Situated inside The Club Hotel & Spa in the island’s capital of St Helier, there’s also a touch of formality here that’s fitting for a special occasion. The cooking exhibits chef Callum Graham’s great understanding of his ingredients and skill of blending the right technique with the right produce. A surprise menu is one of multiple ways in which to sample the memorable dishes that are among the finest you will find in all of Jersey.

Charing Cross, JE3 8AA St Aubin
£££ · Italian

Any natural wine lovers in Jersey will feel right at home at this wine bar and deli which serves a concise menu of classic Italian dishes in the evening, from homemade pasta to tiramisu. The ingredients, from either local Jersey producers or Italian artisans, are of good quality and contribute plenty of flavour to the carefully prepared dishes. The wines come from the owners’ Wild Wine business, which imports natural, organic and biodynamic wines from smaller producers in Italy. The relaxed and friendly service adds to the appeal.

Longueville Manor
Longueville Road, JE2 7WF Saint Saviour
£££ · Modern Cuisine

If you’re yearning for a little bit of luxury, then Longueville Manor and its country house charm fit the bill perfectly. A hotel and spa are also housed here alongside the restaurant, where dining alfresco by the outdoor pool is ideal in warmer weather. The cooking shows subtle modern elements and is centred around local produce, including vegetables from the kitchen garden and the famous Jersey crab. The wine list is a carefully curated tome and, should you wish, they’ll gladly show you around the cellars.

Mark Jordan at the Beach
La Plage, La Route de la Haule, JE3 7YD Beaumont
£££ · Modern British

It’s been over 10 years since Mark Jordan opened his eponymous restaurant in Beaumont, on the road between St Helier and St Aubin. The bright and airy dining room helps to bring the feel of the beachside location inside, while the menu offers a range of modern British classics. There’s a keenly priced set menu on offer, alongside some more luxurious ingredients on the à la carte. If you get the chance to have the raspberry soufflé with raspberry ripple ice cream, be sure to take it.

Le Mont de la Pulente, JE3 8HE La Pulente
£££ · Modern Cuisine

Location is everything at this bright and understated restaurant. Part of The Atlantic Hotel, it sits over on the western side of the island beside both the sea and a sub-tropical garden – and on a sunny day, you could be forgiven for thinking it was in the Caribbean rather than the English Channel. Local produce pops up all across the menu, comprising mostly seafood and, of course, the renowned Jersey Royals. Dishes display a complex approach and there’s a sense of luxury running throughout.

Oyster Box
La Route de la Baie, JE3 8EF Saint Brelade
£££ · Seafood

You’ll be hard pushed to find a beach in Jersey quite as postcard-worthy as St Brelade’s Bay. Thankfully, the Oyster Box is a restaurant befitting of the location and comes with spectacular views from its terrace. The appealing menu offers plenty of options but, as the name suggests, seafood is the star here. From crab taglierini to the fish of the day and Jersey oysters cooked in a myriad of ways, this is a place in which to make the most of the island location.

7-11 Don Street, JE2 4TQ Saint Helier
£££ · Modern Cuisine

Smart and smoothly run, this modern brasserie deluxe tucked way down the narrow streets of St Helier ticks so many boxes. Open throughout the day from breakfast and brunch to lunch and dinner, you will find plenty to enjoy on the extensive menus. There’s a Mediterranean influence to many of the dishes, as well as strong combinations of flavours. Being Jersey, there’s plenty of seafood options, including oysters and caviar to start for those looking to make their visit a real occasion.

The Moorings
Gorey Pier, JE3 6EW Gorey
£££ · Traditional Cuisine

At the foot of the striking Mont Orgueil Castle sits this little restaurant with rooms, and it has been here in some form for over 150 years. Today it’s a smart and elegant place with a notably French twist to the cooking, which remains fairly traditional and centres around a host of fish and shellfish – look out for the local oysters in particular. Meat, game and plant-based options are also available, including an enjoyable pheasant schnitzel. Enjoy a drink on the terrace to really get in the holiday mood.
