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.

We stayed in Gorey recently and enjoyed the Bass and Lobster so much we returned a further 3 times during the course of our 7 night stay!

We always received a really warm welcome from Kirstie and Fran along with excellent service. The restaurant it's self has a lovely atmosphere, and you can opt to dine inside or out.

The food here is stunning - very inventive and made using high quality local produce, which Kirstie and Dave are very proud of (and rightly so!).

We tried so many beautiful dishes, including tempura oysters, octopus, duck, red mullet, scallops and various different wonderful flavours of Ice creams. All were cooked to perfection, seasoned and balanced beautifully.

Highly recommended!

We came upon Bass & Lobster while exploring Gorey and what a find! Not too much on the menu which is always a good sign and this was proof when the food arrived. The presentation is close to fine dining, the quality was impeccable and to top it off we even had the owner assisting to serve our table. It was unexpected and we are so glad we stumbled on this gem.

You know when you're full but you carry on eating anyway because the food is just wonderful, well, that's the Bass and Lobster.
I had the Bass starter which is oysters with, parmesan, anchovies, bacon salad and was huge, husband had to help me eat it, he had the tempura prawns, which he polished off happily on his own.
I had the fish, plaice and parmesan with truffle oil chips, husband had monkfish!
Yes, l was full but l couldn't resist the hazelnut brownie with thyme and raspberry sorbet. If you haven't tried raspberry and thyme sorbet, just go to the Bass and Lobster....
Wouldn't go of you're trying to diet, book ahead.

Not the most palatial of venues, not the most expansive menu, but delicious food, generous portions and fantastic friendly staff all at great value.
We went on the £25 set menus that consists of a three course meal with a pre starter bread board and post dessert coffee and chocolates.
A la Carte seemed to be less favourable value but the food looked to be just as delicious.
We would highly recommend this to all and will be back to try out their Autumn £20 set menu in October.

Absolutely fantastic, every aspect of the evening was top notch. The staff extremely professional, all the food, and I mean all the food was to Michelin standard, if you are thinking of going don’t hesitate but make sure you book otherwise you are likely to be disappointed. Not expensive considering the quality.

This place is the best on the Island! The food, the service, the whole package. The team are so professional yet super friendly. The food is always amazing and I highly recommend their home made ice cream. We make a point of visiting every time we come back and are never disappointed.

We got lucky rang up and got a booking but had 90 mins in order to have our meal as they needed the table later. We were not disappointed it was amazing the wife had homemade lamb and chorizo burger with Parmesan fries it was delicious never tasted a more beautiful burger like this before. Pity it closed early on Sunday as we would of tried again to get in to sample the wonderful menu. It’s closed also on Mondays so best book this place if you can.

The reviews are right , book before you travel and don’t miss this fantastic restaurant. The food and service is first class . We had Oysters natural to start and they were out if this world , scallops was on the menu but we wanted just cooked with butter this was no problem for the chef to prepare and they were just so cooked in butter with some dill and caramelised on the top . For our mains we had the catch of the day “ mackerel fillets” and the Veal both spot on, we finished with creme brûlée and a local cheese platter toasted with a glass of two of New Zealand savingon Blanc - Thankyou for a great evening

We recently visited Jersey and had booked Bass & Lobster sometime in advance. We had to give it 5* and write a review! The menu was amazing and pretty much everything from the bread to the ice creams and sorbets were homemade. The layers and complexity of flavour combinations across all the courses we had were so tasty. We had scallops, Fukha goats cheese, monkfish, mackerel & plaice (catches of the day), smoked pavlova, ghost chilli and cucumber sorbet… The only problem was that we couldn’t try more of the available dishes on the menu. The menu, food and perfectly attentive staff means we will be back as soon as we are able..Fabulous..

We had a great evening there on Wednesday! Absolutely fabulous food, great service and superb ambiance in this hip, yet not pretentious restaurant. The kids (14, 11 and 8) all found multiple items to their liking (and that was just on the starter menu!). The food was of the outmost quality... And the waiting staff was highly attentive, convivial and really warm...

The restaurant was busy, almost frantic. There were several things unavailable, some disappearing even as we viewed the menu. I was surprised to discover the hand dived scallop starter was cold. I seemed they were just trying too hard with some of the dishes. The food was ok but not special. Not on a par with other restaurants we visited during our stay in Jersey.
