7 restaurants with a sea view
Enjoy the sea’s bounty as you watch the waves at these Jersey fish and seafood restaurants with a sea view. Local fish and seafood always seems to taste better when you can see the ocean it was caught in. Here are a few of the best waterside spots that serve up Jersey seafood with a stunning sea view.
Oyster Box Bar and Restaurant
Smart seafood is served with pristine views of St. Brelade’s Bay at this airy New England-style restaurant. For the most magical of experiences, book a window table at high tide when the sea is just a few metres away, and don’t miss the local oysters - either au naturel or served poached in champagne butter.
The Boat House
Impressive on the outside with its expanse of timber and glass, The Boat House is even more of a winner inside with great waterside views across St. Aubin’s harbour. Newly opened, The Anchor Club restaurant on the first floor has the best elevated nautical views, so you can be mast-height with the yachts as you enjoy your seafood dinner.
With arguably one of Jersey’s most impressive sea views, Corbière Phare Restaurant and Bar offers some great a la carte dining. A view that can change dramatically with the tide and the season, we particularly love it when there’s a storm brewing and the waves are crashing.
This eclectic eatery right on the pier at Gorey is where you’ll find tasty fish dishes like salt and pepper squid, local scallops - hand dived of course, mussels with Jersey cream or cider-battered fish and chips, all served just feet away from the fishing harbour.
Mark Jordan at the Beach
A restaurant that lives up to its name; just a few steps from the sand of St. Aubin’s Bay. It’s the casual sister restaurant to the Michelin-starred Ocean restaurant and shares the same chef. On the menu, stylish modern British classics and a good choice of fish dishes to match its seaside location.
El Tico Beach Cantina
Sea, sand and surf views come as standard at this local favourite on stunning St. Ouen’s Bay. From leisurely weekend breakfasts to a casual sunset supper watching the waves, grab a space at the restaurant’s refectory-style tables, or sit outside in the summer to get even closer to the surf.
The Crab Shack, Gorey
This casual and relaxed seafood restaurant doesn’t just have a sea view; it’s perfectly positioned for spectacular views of the medieval Mont Orgueil castle. Make a stop here for crab salads and oysters from the bay, all served overlooking the coast and the castle.
