The Islands of Guernsey have an impressive gastronomic reputation, known for serving a variety of delicious, fresh food. The restaurant scene on our Islands is constantly changing and being added to. Whilst local favourites remain, it is always exciting to try something, or somewhere, new.
If you haven’t visited our Islands in a while, here is a list of some of the exciting new eateries on offer for you to bookmark for a future visit to the Islands of Guernsey.
Puffin and Oyster
Located on the northwest coast of Guernsey at Le Grand Havre, a natural harbour with a beautiful sandy beach, The Puffin and Oyster provides excellent views out to sea as well as delicious food. Relax during lunch or dinner with a cask-conditioned ale or a chilled glass of wine from their extensive list.
A new bar on the scene, Bad Habits offers a range of unique and delicious cocktails - their ‘teapots’ are especially perfect for sharing. A great spot for a girl's night out, with a pink theme and neon signs, they play all of the classic tunes you love to belt out with your friends.
Habanero is a vibrant, laid-back spot offering authentic Mexican ‘Cocina’ for a taste of Latin America. The menu includes burritos, nachos, rice bowls and more. It's the perfect place to stop to grab something to eat, either to sit inside at their high tables or take away and enjoy on your travels.
Looking out over St Peter Port harbour, Sorrento opened its doors in the summer of 2022. Serving Italian cuisine with an extensive wine selection from across the world and regional Italian wineries, Sorrento's goal is to put modern twists on classic recipes to bring a taste of the Amalfi coast to Guernsey.
Fifty-Seven is also located on the seafront, with enviable views and a modern interior. There is something for every pallet on their classic Mediterranean menu which focuses on seafood and fish dishes using fresh local produce - vegan and vegetarian options are also available. Fifty-Seven also has a bar upstairs serving cocktails and wine, allowing you to carry on your evening experience.
Good Rebel is the sister restaurant to the popular Fat Rascal and offers fresh, healthy and sometimes rebellious dining options. Alongside a mix of wellness juices is a creative and modern menu catering to a variety of tastes. You can enjoy brunch, lunch, or an evening drink whilst you relax inside or sit out in the al fresco dining area. Their dinner service is starting in early May, available Thursday - Saturday. You'll find the restaurant at Admiral Park which is easily accessible along the seafront by foot or bike, with parking just around the back if you're travelling from out of town.
Mocca Coffee House
A cosy new spot for coffee in Trinity Square, just up from the Bordage and the main centre of St Peter Port town, Mocca serves a wide variety of coffee, fresh pastries, sandwiches, cakes, soups and more. Their menu changes often, so you can be sure to experience something new and delicious each time you visit.
The newest restaurant and bar to grace the local scene is Dhaka, a Bangladesh restaurant. The decor is bright and vibrant, and the food is distinctive and enjoyable. It's the only restaurant of its kind on our Islands!
Oak Bar and Bistro
Oak Bar and Bistro at the Rocquettes Hotel, at the top of the Grange above St Peter Port, is the perfect place for a relaxed lunch, afternoon tea, cocktails or a delicious family meal. You can sit in the bar area or the more formal bistro, and during the summer you can enjoy some al fresco dining and drinks on the terrace. Private dining options are also available.
Local bar Mojito has been around for a long time, but it has recently undergone a rebrand and refurbishment. From the decor and logo to the drinks and menu, it’s the same old location with an entirely new feel. And with live music on most Fridays and Saturdays, you’ll be entertained as you enjoy your drinks.
