Best restaurants on Jersey
Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, is a popular place to visit, particularly in the summer months. Lying closer to France than England, the climate is warmer, making the island a popular beach destination. There are also many great places to eat on Jersey. Local produce, such as Jersey royals, fresh fish and asparagus, is excellent and well-known. This fresh produce, along with the French influence that the location inevitably brings, results in an unbeatable combination.
Where to eat on Jersey
- Bohemia in St Helier boasts a Michelin star, which means that you can be assured of fine dining. The comfortable and friendly restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy the food. Head Chef Steve Smith has created a menu of inventive, modern dishes created from prime ingredients. If you’re on holiday, why not start your meal with something from the cocktail menu? It includes traditional favourites as well as Bohemia’s own creations.
- Another Michelin-starred restaurant is Ocean at the Atlantic Hotel in St Brelade. The restaurant has a coastal American feel, but the menu created by Chef Mark Jordan has a distinctly French influence, and ingredients are sourced from top local suppliers whenever possible. If, as is likely, you find it hard to decide what to eat here, the restaurant has a tasting menu.
- For a less-formal but similarly delicious meal, head to The Beach in St Peter, a second Mark Jordan restaurant. The bistro atmosphere is enhanced by rattan furnishings and works by local artists.
- Ormer in St Helier is a sophisticated restaurant that also has a Michelin star. The menu is extensive to cater to all tastes, including vegetarians, and it changes to reflect the seasonal produce available. For lunch, head next door to the Don Street Deli, also run by Chef Shaun Rankin, and enjoy luxury salads, freshly baked breads from the wood-fired oven and a range of tasty dishes from fine local produce.
