Visited El Tico recently on a lovely sunny day and what a fabulous experience it was. We watched the sun go down into the sea whilst eating good quality food.....Lovely salads! The tables outside have stunning views.... a must if you are visiting Jersey.

Whilst trying to catch the last bit of the sun and the sunset we went to El Tico for a bite to eat. It was ok, it was a Tuesday night and had to wait about 40 minutes for a table which is fine although they don't really have anywhere for people to wait for a table so, you just end up standing around the entrance getting in the way which isn't great. The staff were helpful and mentioned to us about their daily specials and also about what they had none let of. They do kind of rush you for your food order even if you mention to them that you would like 10 minutes to look at the menu they'll give you 3 minutes!! Which is understandable as they want you to hurry p so, they can have your table for the next people although, when you go out for dinner to a 'café' you don't expect to be rushed! The food itself was ok nothing special though. We were a table of three and had the duck salad, the crab linguine and the squid ring salad. The crab linguine was a decent portion size but very cheesy and creamy. The salads were very plain and consisted of only lettuce and dressing. They could have easily made the salad dishes more appealing by adding more salad items (tomatoes, red onions, carrot, cucumber etc.). We weren't quite expecting just a bowl of lettuce. As a local, I would go to this café for the setting and maybe a hot drink next time as we've now been here several times now and each time the food hasn't been the greatest and you can get a much better meal elsewhere for cheaper along the five mile road.

This was a recomendation from a friend and didnt disapoint. Great value breakfast with excellent service and a fantastic view off the five mile road. Huge quantity of good quality food and a varied menu that had us debating if could get back another day for lunch/dinner. Beautiful beach and some interesting fortifications to look at - just keep an eye out on the bus timetable as they can be infrequent!
