Whether it's fish and chips with your toes in the sand, a fresh crab salad while enjoying an incredible view, indulgent afternoon tea, a French classic, or blow the budget dinner - dining out packs a punch on this small island.
Guernsey has always prided itself on having a positive plethora of restaurants and cafes, kiosks and hotels to choose from when it comes to grabbing a bite to eat.
There is an abundance of amazing local produce, grown and reared on the island and gathered from our surrounding waters. Our fabulous fresh ingredients make their way into all your favourites, a cup of coffee topped up with local milk, thick Sark butter spread on your toast with jam bought from a hedge veg stall tucked away down a rural lane; the best bacon sandwich, sourced from locally-reared pigs; a simple fish lunch, with the star of the dish caught the same day and lamb reared in the grassy plains of Sark.
It's fresh, it's simple, it's the best.
Guernsey's beach cafés and tearooms provide the perfect pick me up for weary walkers, stiff cyclists and sunbathers in need of shade.
These cheerful beachside stalls sell everything you would expect - and often a bit more. Ice creams in cones, good cups of coffee, freshly made crab sandwiches and homemade cakes. Then there is the less expected, the crab lines and sun hats, buckets and spades and windbreaks.
They are pivotal to the 27 beaches around the island - you may even find you are spoilt for choice at the larger beaches.
Dining in Guernsey's great outdoors
Packing a bag and heading to the beach for your tea is one of life's simple luxuries. Whether it's a simple picnic, a few burgers on the BBQ or a full blown banquet, there are plenty of great spots around the coast to choose from, if you want to dine with a view.

When it comes to choice of restaurants there is an eye-watering selection within the Bailiwick of Guernsey. The main bulk of eateries are in the capital St Peter Port, but wherever you are, you won't be far from a great place to eat.
During October and November a popular food festival, the Tennerfest, takes place. Hundreds of Channel Islands’ eateries all put on special set menus starting from as little as £10 - it is cheaper to eat out during the autumn months, and that's what most people do.
