A Foodie Break
Jersey is renowned for its Jersey Royals and although these little oval gems are deliciously sweet, there is much more to our island food culture.
Whether you are looking for a casual snack beside the beach or a Michelin star experience, Jersey has it covered. The freshest seafood, locally farmed produce and dairy from our famous Jersey cows provide an abundance of ingredients - all within 45 square miles.
There is so much choice it is difficult to know where to begin; so we have gathered a selection of our top recommendations!
Casual Seaside Dining
North - The Navigator
Situated overlooking the tranquil beach and harbour of Rozel on Jersey's north-east coast, The Navigator serves up fresh local produce with a particular focus on fresh seafood. The panoramic windows open wide during summer evenings - perfect for bringing the fresh sea air inside as you dine!
East - The Crab Shack Gorey
With a wide terrace and far-reaching sea views, the Crab Shack is the perfect relaxed setting in which to enjoy local seafood, time-honoured favourites and daily specials. This is the place to relax in the sun during summer or in the warm interior during the winter.
South - Café des Pas
Close to St. Helier town centre but with open seaside views, Café des Pas offers breakfast, light bites and lunch with excellent service, only a few steps off the beach. The café offers local and seasonal produce and supports local growers, including free range eggs, gluten free and vegetarian options.
West - El Tico Beach Cantina
Located in one of the island's most stunning positions, El Tico Beach Cantina is the place to enjoy great local food and a glass of wine whilst watching the sun sink into the Atlantic Ocean. Food is described as “food for friends”. It is real food that is big on flavour, freshness and quality.
Old Bank House Hotel
Situated in the centre of the delightful Gorey Village on Jersey's east coast, the Old Bank House Hotel features a popular bar and tea room - perfect for a relaxing drink whilst out and about or for a tasty afternoon tea in the attractive hotel garden.
Faulkner Fisheries Summer BBQ
Fresh from the sea and stored live in the ‘Le Vivier’ within a WW2 bunker, the fish and shellfish is cooked on the BBQ and served alfresco with spectacular views over the full sweep of St Ouen’s Bay. Le Vivier is a real hidden gem that is easily missed. If you prefer to cook your own, pick up one of their pre-prepared Fruits de Mer to take back to your self-catering accommodation.
The Poplars Tearoom
'Up and baking since 1984', the Poplars Tearoom is renowned for great, simple home cooking. Open during the day, this is the place for freshly brewed coffee, tasty lunches and indulgent treats - all made on the premises by the friendly family team. The tearooms are close to the famous Corbiere Lighthouse and the island's south-west coast.
The Hungry Man
This is where hungry people go to eat. The Hungry Man may appear humble with its small shack, serving window and plastic tables & chairs, but looks can be deceiving. This popular island institution overlooks the tranquil Rozel Harbour and serves simple sandwiches, burgers, rolls and cakes extremely well. Look out for the Double-Decker Health Wrecker burger and the Hot Chocolate mountain - we dare you to finish them!
