We visited with friends who live on the island and who had not used the restaurant before. The food was exceptional and not over expensive. Service was excellent and with a smile!

The food was fantastic but were were kept waiting 75 minutes after ordering. Staff were most appologetic and gave us drinks 'on the house' but the eventual portions were off-puttingly huge.

Before the recent renovations upstairs, this historic pub was fantastic. Now it's even better. Definitely the best local on Guernsey. A must see. Can't wait to go back.

It is not a fancy restaurant with sophisticated food and presentation. However here you get plain English pub food of decent quality. Maybe somewhat overpriced as all restaurants in Guernsey. This accomodation compensates it with very, very, very large portions.

As the owner and one of the chefs at the Captains, and the one that was cooking the evening you were in, I would like to make absolutely crystal clear that we do not serve 'tinned' burgers, wasn't actually aware that anything like that existed....More

Just back home after a weeks holiday staying in St Martins, dined here 3 times and the food is first class and good portions. The Lobster Crab and prawn languini is to die for. The staff work very hard and are very attentive. Strongly recommend.

The Captains is best described as an Inn with rooms, all 9 en suite bedrooms have been recently re-carpeted and are equipped with tv, tea and coffee facilities and complimentary toiletries. The bar attracts locals and visitors alike and you are guaranteed lively banter around the bar area. Whilst the bistro and bar area serves traditional bar meals, the Captains has gained a reputation in recent years for their Seafood dishes and the freshest of local fish. Reservations are not always necessary but to avoid disappointment it is suggested at the weekends and the busy summer months.
