I went to the Bass and Lobster for sunday lunch with some friends. My vegetarian roast was an absolute treat and my meat eating friends were also very happy. The staff were amazing, we felt so well looked after. I had such a great meal that despite only having 6 days in Jersey I insisted on returning for a second visit with my parents. This visit was equally good, we had the feast in the east menu for lunch and It was amazing to have such beautiful food for just £20 for 3 courses with again brilliant service from the staff. Can’t wait for my next trip home so I can come back again. Thank you!

Thank you Kirsty and Dave for another great lunch, outstanding food and service as always. As for the tempura prawns to start with - you really have to try them 😋

This is my third review of the Bass - not something I usually do but I love it so much I don't think I can ever really emphasise enough just how wonderful it is.
During our pandemic enforced absence from Jersey it was the Bass and the zoo I was missing the most and looking forward to getting back to and I'm delighted to report that it was totally worth the wait and standards remain as high as ever. I don't think I've highlighted in the past just how wonderful Kirstie is - she's a massive, massive part of why we keep coming back and enjoying it so much. I believe the two waiting staff on duty were relatively new and I've seen so, so many managers/hosts snapping away at new staff, piling pressure on them and terrifying them beyond repair...Kirstie is the complete opposite. Relaxed, smiling, conversational and the result is there is never a dip in standards and our service was friendly, efficient and never overbearing, with Kirstie checking in to talk us through some of the dishes and the abundance of local produce - she's a joy.
I could rave even more about the food like I always do, it was fabulous and the beetroot/goats cheese starter is nailed on as my wife's favourite of all time but I'd really like this review to really be all about the staff and just the general vibe and exuberance of the place. Already can't wait until we can visit again.

Excellent kitchen and service - interesting with 2 menus, ala carte and a set menu, later with fusion influence. Soft crab tempura to die for as were the sweetbreads.

So, where do I start. Welcome, like coming home! Hostess with the mostest the delightful Kirstie, service top notch, and when it comes to the food, Dave you are seriously good! The duck parfait was off the scale, and sharon has asked me not to write what she said about it! Please keep doing what you do as you have it down to a tee. This is a must go restaurant if you like your food. Innovative is an understatement as the combination of flavours and the perfection of pink but tender game, the quail were to die for. Hard working,passionate, foodies to enjoy!See you soon.

Everything was excellent, stand out were lobster tempura with the sea bass and beautifully sweet scallops. Very well looked after with superb friendly service.

Didn't start well as I think there was a slight mis-communication - we had pre-booked(which you must do) and when we arrived, were told that the table had been let as we were late (we were 15mins early)!! - once this was cleared up and was very quick, we were seated and given a drink on the house for the confusion - this was a really nice touch and not necessary as things like this can happen and it set the tone for the evening - its not a large restaurant - about 60 covers but really busy and deservedly so - starter of crab was fantastic - especially the Tian and then we had a slight delay with mains, however, was offered another drink whihc gain, being in the hospitality trade wasn't necessary as we are all struggling but just showed how the team wanted to look after the customers - mains arrived and were excellent - fish was superb!! - I would rate this a "must visit" if you are on Jersey!!

Absolutely loved the meal we had recently at Bass and Lobster. From the bread Hummus and olives, King prawns tempura and tempura soft crab with crab meat starters plaice and chips, sea bass with spinach and cheese croquette, bombay potatoes and spicy cauliflower. It was all beautifully presented and tasted amazing. The best meal of our holiday. Can highly recommend

From the name I thought this would be a gastropub, but no this is proper fine dining. If you just want quantity then this is not for you. Sensibly sized, well-presented, a little inventive, but mainly just tasty food. It has actually been many years since I’ve had such good service, and three excellent courses. Highly recommend.

Outstanding food, excellent service and a wonderfully warm welcome awaits you. I can’t say anymore than that! A family run restaurant that I would recommend to everyone.

This was such a special experience, service exemplary and food was amazing.
We are not normally big fish eaters but we were definitely converted with the well thought-out and special dishes

We stopped for lunch, oysters, scallops and crab. Wow. I mean Wow. I’d thoroughly recommend this for a light lunch but the menu is extensive and I’m confident that a full dinner would be equally excellent. Service is lovely, charming lady maitre D.

Just a fabulous experience from start to finish. Kirsty is perfect as front of house and Dave an amazing chef. Such delicious creations, a harmony on the pallet. A must visit in Gorey.

This is our first trip to Jersey but won't be our last and we will definitely be back to the Bass and Lobster. The menu and food were outstanding. All beautifully presented (we don't usually take photos of our food but felt we had to take a shot of our starters) our main course burgers were outstanding with a wonderful Plum Bakewell and huge range of homemade ice creams as our choice of desserts. The staff are fun and friendly and work so hard as a small team but nothing is too much trouble. Well done for weathering the Covid storm and we hope to visit again some time soon. Thank you so much.

We’d booked ahead to try Bass and Lobster and were glad we had as it was full on the Tuesday night we visited.
The meals were of the highest standard, the restaurant was buzzing and the staff and owner were enthusiastic, helpful but never intrusive. We had three courses each and all were well presented, beautifully tasty and representative of a really strong, varied menu overall. Excellent restaurant.

The Bass & Lobster is a must visit restaurant for locals, and visitors, alike. Booking in advance is recommended. We had the set lunch on a Tuesday, and it was packed. The service by Kirstie, and her team was very attentive, informative, and clearly showed a passion for what they produce, here. Chef Thorpe Jones and his crew served up mouth-watering dishes showcasing the best of locally sourced, and seasonal produce with very well balanced and innovative flavours. The portions on our 3 course £25 lunch were generous. The path set here by the Bass and Lobster, in sourcing locally, and adhering to the seasons, appeals, greatly to my ethos of how it should be done, and also makes them a prime candidate for Michelin's new 'Green Star' award introduced last year.

Hands down one of my favourite restaurants, EVER. Kirsty and her incredible team really care about food, customer service and freshest quality ingredients.
We arrived late for a drink (the wine list in fantastic) ended up having the scallops starter and then a full round of the ice cream. We booked to come back for lunch the next day. I can not begin to describe just how wonderful everything was. If they could bottle up the atmosphere, food and team - I’d buy it and bring it home - I’d to settle for the chilli salt.

If you go and there are scallops on have them. They were perfect. Additionally the alternative favourite ice creams were brilliant too - chip shop curry was an experience that I couldn’t stop talking about all trip; I think I really enjoyed it. Brought me right back to being 16 and in Ireland.

Anyway, GO book in advance it’s really is a stellar dining experience by a team that really really cares.
