The next in my ‘5 Places to Eat’ series is right here in Guernsey where I live. And let me tell you – narrowing the list down to five places was really, really difficult. But I gave it a good go… expect a part two at some point in the future!
Red Grill House
Le Petit Bistro & Cafe
Roc Salt Beach Cafe & Restaurant
I love any place that serves sweet potato fries and up until recently, that wasn’t very many places in Guernsey but Roc Salt is one of them. What I love about the place are the beach hut vibes in the decor – I kind of want everything for my living room. I also really love the lobster and steak meals that they offer – great value. It’s such a fun cosy place to be for the evening and its also great for a girly lunch on a sunny day.With an impressive selection of dry aged steak and seafood, plus inject your own donuts (yes, you read that right) it’s definitely worth the journey out of town to the Chouet headland to test it out. My next visit will be for the family serve roast dinners that they offer on a Sunday.
Octopus Gsy Bar & Restaurant
Octopus holds prime position overlooking Castle Cornet on the seafront at La Valette. They serve up beautiful fresh seafood, salads and steaks plus a couple of other special surprises. It’s worth the slightly longer walk from the town centre to test their famous Guernsey crab and lobster hot pots as well as their mussels in a variety of sauces – oh, and the oysters! I recommend heading over for a sunset cocktail before a cosy dinner whilst gazing at the castle beautifully lit up at night. It’s also a great place for brunch on a sunny morning watching people on the beach in front and boats coming in and out. Patio heaters make it work year-round when it’s dry.
Cafe Delices is a go-to of mine. I’m there at least once a week. I love to pop in for quick coffee meetings, to catch up on some work with great coffee and good wifi. It’s a small, but perfectly formed, hole-in-the -all on Market Square. The menu and vibe is a happy mix of pretty island back street with a heavy influence from our French neighbours. What the cafe is known for is their stunning selection of galettes (savoury crepes). My favourite is the Fermiere with bacon and goat cheese. They also serve delicious crepes, pastries, cakes and omelettes. Plus, they have a little ice cream cart that serves scrummy Guernsey ice cream for you to wander around in the sunshine with. Island perfection!
Incidentally, I haven’t been able to fit in Ziggurat, Christie’s, The Rockmount, The OGH, The Hook or The Duke of Richmond so I’m going to have to fill you in on those another time! 🙂
Have you been to my pretty little island? Do you have a favourite places to eat in Guernsey?
