In the shadow of Mont Orgueil Castle, Sumas Restaurant sits on the harbour side in picturesque Gorey.
Serving excellent local and seasonal produce, Sumas offers a laid back atmosphere without losing that feeling of a meal there really being a special event. The crisp and contemporary decoration subtly reminds you that you’re at the seaside, without distracting from the real reason for visiting – the fantastic food!
Sunday Lunch at Sumas is an Island institution and a real treat. The menu is ever changing and can include such delicious treats as Royal Bay Oysters (so local you can practically see the oyster beds from the sunny restaurant terrace), Half local Lobster, Risotto of Paris Brown Mushrooms and, the jewel in the crown, the excellent Sirloin of Scottish Beef with all the Sunday trimmings.
If you’ve got space to spare after that the dessert menu is exciting, varied and absolutely irresistible.
For those early birds Sumas opens at 9am on a Saturday and Sunday offering a sumptuous choice of world inspired breakfast dishes from the traditional full English, to American Pancakes & Maple Syrup, to Brioche French Toast. The health conscious amongst us can select fresh fruits or granola with natural yoghurt, teamed with a choice of fresh juices.
Of course, the restaurant is also open for dinner from Monday to Saturday evenings from 6pm, serving a great selection of dishes to suit all tastes. Heavy with local fish and seafood, fans of red meat are not forgotten with beautiful Angus Beef and Rib Eye Steaks also on offer. Again, the dessert menu proves hard to refuse, no matter how full you are! I can heartily recommend trying the cheese board with a glass of a red.
As you’d expect the wine list is extensive, with a great choice of bottles starting at just £16.00, up to a 2002 Dom Perignon if you’ve got something to celebrate. With cocktails and a good selection of premium spirits also available there’s a tipple to suit everyone.
With all those options on offer it’s impossible NOT to find time to eat at Sumas whilst in Jersey. If we have one word of advice it is to book early, or we might beat you to the last table.
