The Best Places to Eat Seafood ‘Al Fresco’ in Jersey
Jersey has some top-quality seafood from locally caught crab, lobster, bass, plaice and skate to hand-dived scallops and local oysters. Take advantage of the sea air in the sunniest place in the British Isles at any one of our choices.
CRAB SHACK AT ST BRELADE’S BAY
Whilst its ‘sister’ restaurant next door specialises in seafood, we prefer the more laid back vibe here. The location is fantastic right on the beachfront on the most popular summer beach in Jersey. They also have branches near Gorey Castle and in one of the prettiest lanes in the centre of St Helier too.
SAMPLE DISH: Chili crab linguine.
FAULKNER FISHERIES BBQ
The location is an old German WW2 bunker at L’Etacq at the north end of St Ouen’s Bay with bench seats outside overlooking the bay. Fish and shellfish come served in a tin foil tray with bread and salad. Very simple and very tasty.
SAMPLE DISH: Fish of the Day steamed ‘en papillote ‘.
Feast is a popular bistro-style restaurant at Gorey on the east of the island with a medieval castle behind you. Seafood platters are always a good option on the outside tables overlooking the harbour.
SAMPLE DISH: Salt and Pepper Squid.
A local’s favourite for many years, this restaurant is literally a stone’s throw from the sand on the beach at Green Island. In summer try and get a table outside, if you’re lucky you may see one of the famed ‘pink sunsets’ over the island.
SAMPLE DISH: Lemon Sole Fillets/ Cockle & Mussel Marinier/ Crushed Jersey Royals/ Samphire/ Wilted Baby Spinach/ Chive Butter
SEAFISH CAFE AT ST.AUBIN
Just a few tables outside looking over the small harbour at St Aubin. One of the best places to eat ‘Posh’ fish and chips in Jersey and the seafood pies and crab cakes are always good too.
SAMPLE DISH: Jersey Chancre Crab/ Smoked Salmon Cakes/ Dill, Lemon and Crème Fraiche Dressing
