Top beachside restaurants and pubs in Jersey

Thursday, 5 April 2014 7:49 AM

There are few getaways more chic than a break filled to bursting with fine wining and dining. However, what about if all this eating out is done in establishments boasting outstanding sea views? Well, by booking tables at restaurants in Jersey you can do just this - on every night of your holiday!

Because the island measures just nine miles by five, you are never far from the sea when you stay here - which is why so many people choose to come walking in Jersey. Whether tackling the coastal path, walking from one shoreline to another or simply strolling on the beach, you can see some incredible vistas when exploring on two feet here.

However, all that walking will certainly see you work up an appetite, but luckily there are some great beachside restaurants you'll pass on the way. Here are a few of our favourites.

Sumas

Sumas Restaurant in St Martin is a great little eatery that sits below Mont Orgueil Castle. Book a table on the terrace and you can enjoy views of Gorey harbour and pier below you, which is only a stone's throw away.

The menu is constantly changing so even if you've visited before, you're guaranteed a new experience next time you come. The dishes are modern and British, but with a Mediterranean twist, while the ingredients are fresh and local. Expect to tuck into delicacies like Jersey scallops and Royal Bay oysters, in addition to non-seafood specialties like roast quail and cheese souffle.

Roseville Bistro

You can count on being given a warm welcome when you dine at this family-run establishment. Founded in 1964, it has specialised in wonderfully simple dishes that have made full use of produce from local waters ever since.

Located in Havre Des Pas right next to the seafront, this is the ideal place to come after a morning walking along the coast or taking a dip in the town's bathing pool. There is a wide choice of dining options available, including a la carte, vegetarian and early eating. Choose from treats like seafood chowder, sizzling prawns and crab cakes.

El Tico

El Tico Beach Cantina in St Ouen's Bay is a casual beachside cafe where you can pop in whether you want an evening meal or just a cup of coffee. The chefs start cooking at 9am so any early bird walkers can head here for breakfast!

Light bites include crispy Asian duck salad and Mexican eggs, while in the evening you can enjoy crab linguine or east African spicy curry.

The Beach House

As its name would suggest, this St Brelade restaurant has some amazing sea views, with a 90-seat terrace that takes full advantage of the vista. Even if you're visiting the island during the winter, you can enjoy those spectacular sights while tucking into a cosy supper, as the building is glass-fronted.

Light dishes include tapas, which allow you to sample lots of different flavours, while the a la carte menu contains mouth-watering options like organic salmon, line-caught sea bass and sirloin steak.

The Bulwark

Sitting on the St Aubin quayside, The Bulwark is a contemporary restaurant with some fantastic sea views. Again, there are a choice of menus, including a Sunday roast.

These are just some of the great places to eat on the island, while there are also Jersey tourism events like Tennerfest that focus on food, so when you book a holiday here, you can be certain your tastebuds are in for a treat.
