Jersey is a food lover’s paradise! There are so many best Jersey pubs and restaurants and places to eat in Jersey. This guide will narrow down where to eat in Jersey with a sunset view, where to eat in Jersey for vegetarians and where to eat the best seafood in Jersey. As Jersey is a small island surrounded by sea, it has some of the freshest seafood I have ever tried. Each day we had a new delicious place to eat and nowhere disappointed. There are also a lot of very affordable places to eat in Jersey and I will be writing how much we spent on a meal for two at each place. Then to finish, I’ll be telling you where to go for a fancier, romantic meal while watching the sunset.
So if you are a seafood lover, a meat eater, or prefer a carrot burger, I have all the places for you below! Also some great traditional British food to try! We had 6 full days here and we ate somewhere new everyday so we could try as many places as possible to be able to save you doing any research! Everything you need to know is here, and if you have any questions at all just let me know in the comments section.
This was a press trip with Visit Jersey, but of course all opinions are my own!

Best Jersey pubs and restaurants with a sunset view
I think a sunset view while eating dinner really makes me feel like I’m on holiday. It’s not everyday that you can eat dinner while watching the sunset, but Jersey is the best place for this. Below are the top three restaurants in Jersey with a sunset view, right by the beach. Jersey sunsets really are special and we were lucky to have a beautiful sunset all but one day of our trip. Considering it’s the UK and in September, I think this is pretty great.
El Tico is one of the most popular places to eat on the island so be sure to get here early if you can. They have a broad menu, but very delicious, and something for everyone. If we had more time in Jersey I would have gone back for the Goan Fish curry. The seafood here was incredible, Boyan had the calamari for starter and I had a mezze platter with falafel and hummus. For main, Boyan had the steak and I had delicious spicy prawns. For dessert, I would recommend the banoffee pie, or a sticky toffee pudding, which I hadn’t had in such a long time. It really is the best sunset dinner spot, with plenty lots of deck chairs outside where you can wrap up with a blanket and enjoy the sunset.
Price of main course £15-£20

Le Braye – Vegetarian options
Le Braye is along the beach from El Tico and also a lovely place to eat. I would recommend coming here for lunch, as they have an outdoor seating area that is shaded. As it is quite windy here, it makes you feel as though you are outside but while being nice and warm. The menu here is a mixture of fish, meat and burgers and has a whole vegetarian section too. I went for the tempura fish and chips and Boyan had the calamari. They also have lots of traditional desserts, including Jersey ice cream! Jersey is famous for it’s Jersey cows and I can say that the milk really is delicious, and the ice cream is even better! We paid £23.80 for a main meal and a starter to share with two drinks.
Price of a main course £8-£20
I really wanted to go to Faulkner Fisheries as it seemed to be the place with the freshest fish. It is actually in an old bunker and is really right on the coast, as close to the sea as you can get. As you walk up to order, there are people walking around with waterproof boots on holding fresh fish. Once you place your order you are then given a buzzer and can choose a seat in the sun. The options when we went were all sorts of grilled seafood with garlic butter sauce. Boyan has grilled squid with a slightly spicy sauce that was delicious. I had a mix of scallops and prawns. These came with bread to dip in the sauce, which I couldn’t get enough of. You can also get some Jersey potatoes on the side. We paid £22.90 for two fish dishes and one drink.
Price of a seafood dish varies between £12-£20
Best Jersey pubs and restaurants by the beach
All of the next options really are right on the beach, as close as you can be without going into the sea. Two are small food trucks with delicious food, and better for a quick lunch. Then one is a small café right on the beach, you even have to walk along the sand to get here.

The Hungry Man
This was our first place we ate at in Jersey! It was perfectly placed, just a short walk away from Chateau La Chaire where we were staying, which is one of the Luxury Jersey Hotels. I went straight for seafood and the crab sandwich I had didn’t disappoint. Boyan had a burger and we even had a rocky road for dessert.
The Hungry Man is in Rozel Bay, right as the start of the little pier here that juts out into the sea. There is a small harbour here and it was lovely to sit outside in the sun at the beginning of September. The houses along the harbour are also really pretty and colourful and make for some great photos. The Hungry Man is a small food truck but with a great exterior and is also very popular. However, service was still very fast. We paid £20 here for two meals and two drinks with a dessert between us. The crab sandwich was £8.80and that was the most expensive thing on the menu. Great, affordable lunch!
Portelet Bay Café
This was one of my favourite places to eat, mainly as it is right on the beach. To get here you walk down a long set of stairs and actually have to walk along the sand to get here. It is a beautiful little café with indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is quite sheltered so it was quite warm even in the evening.
It actually is also a great spot for dinner, as you get the sunset light for a while until it pops behind the cliffs on the beach. Portelet Bay café is famous for it’s pizza. I can say they were incredible. I had a pizza with prosciutto, rocket and pesto and it was divine. They have great oysters here when they are available also. Then the desserts were incredible. I had the rhubarb crumble that was on of the best I’ve ever had. It had walnuts in and was full of fruit. Boyan had the hot chocolate pudding with ice cream. The carrot cake also looked really good.
This is another lovely food truck. Right by the beach, it is small but delicious. I would recommend the Parmesan fries with the fish fingers! Boyan had the Hideout burger and it also looked great. It is quite windy here but we actually sat in the car and ate while looking at the sea and it was really lovely for a quick bite. There is also seating outside the Hideout, so you don’t actually have to eat in the car. They also do a great chai latte to warm you up. From here I would recommend visiting Corebiére lighthouse for a great viewpoint for the sunset. Make sure to check the tides, otherwise the path may be covered in water!
Where to get tapas and sourdough pizza in Jersey
I hadn’t seen anywhere else with tapas while we were here but I think this is the best place anyway! The menu is quality over quantity, with a few tapas options but big on flavour.
Off The Rails
We were recommended this place to eat by a few people! It is a lovely little place not far from St Ouen’s beach. You can also get here by walking along the old railway track that is a popular walking trail. Also if it’s a chilly day, Off the Rails is perfect as it is even heated indoors. They have a selection of tapas and sourdough pizzas. We wanted a lighter lunch that day so we went for different tapas. We had the calamari, prawns, a goats cheese salad and scallops to share. It was so delicious. For dessert lovers, there is even a nutella and banana pizza, as well as macarons and hot chocolate brownie. The interior is also really lovely and there is also outdoor seating for a sunny day.
The tapas dishes range from £4.50 to £6.50
Pizza was between £9 to £13

Get your best outfit on and head here for a fancy meal for two, with a sunset view.
The Atlantic Hotel
The Atlantic is one of the hotels we stayed at during our trip to Jersey. They very kindly invited us to dinner one evening and we had the most incredible meal. I had to take photos of the menu to even remember all of the parts of the dishes we ate as they were so intricate, with all sorts of flavours accompanying each other.
Before our starters came, we had some nibbles in the form of some mussels and mini pizzas. Then for starter Boyan had a pig’s head terrine and I had scallops. For main, I had a John Dory fillet and Boyan had the steak. Then for dessert I had a white chocolate pannacotta and Boyan had a beautifully plated dessert with banana and ice cream. To read about the full menu, head to my blog post on our stay at The Atlantic hotel. I would definitely recommend eating here as a treat for some incredible food, and to eat while watching the sunset.
There is a Market menu – 3 course for £55. This menu changes daily.
A la carte starters range from £15-£21and mains range between £30-£38
