We have lost count of the number of times we have eaten in this excellent, informal restaurant looking out over the longest beach on the island. We can safely say that there have NEVER been any reasons to complain. On an island filled with good restaurants this one stands out as well worth a detour. Queuing is inevitable at peak... More

Every time we come to Jersey we always head straight for El Tico. Love the crab linguine, the tempura prawns and the squid rings. The food is fab and the service pretty quick too :)

Just loved everything about this restaurant. It sits on the St Ouens bay and has the most fabulous views of this stunning bay. Table bookings are only taken during the winter months but we seldom had to wait very long for a table. The rustic wooden tables and benches are immaculate and the menu serves as your placemat. There are... More

best French toast ever for breakfast in this surfy vibe cantina. coffees and breakfast of extremely delicious quality and friendly efficient staff. Such an amazing menu and hard to choose but great range of healthy and naughty treats :-) The view of the beach is just stunning and could have sat all day chilling at this little gem.

Had a beautiful lunch with my Aunty, the jersey burger was amazing and a bit of calamari as a starter was a great treat. Sat inside but stunning views enjoyed. Prices very good and service excellent, we had much attention and I would go again without a doubt! Loved it so much I bought a tote bag for lunches back... More

I've eaten here quite a few times now and i cannot fault the food and service at El Tico's. It's a really popular place for people to meet up and taken in the spectacular scenery as this is a a prime locations for surfers. Sometimes you will need to wait to be seated especially at weekends. The food is always... More

Start with the positive: the view and location are great. But that's where is ends... Service was horrible to barely existent. Items were forgotten, nonchalant attitude, zero apologies. They never cleared the dirty dishes so we piled dishes on the end of the table making it quite obvious, but when the waitress came to ask us about dessert we asked... More

What an excellent place for brunch. This vibrant and busy restaurant has stunning views across St Ouen's Bay. A little bit of a Mexican lean but plenty of more traditional dishes available. This place is really busy so consider booking, this said they are fast and efficient.

Our friends took us here as they had been told there were good vegan options. However, when we arrived we were offered several things that were not vegan and eventually told there was only one thing on the menu that was vegan (porridge with coconut milk). It was very disappointing. However, we read a review later that day from another... More
