What a treat at the bass and lobster last night. I had been looking forward to the crab agnotti (apologise for sp!) all day and I wasn’t disappointed. Sweet crab meat with a beautiful sharp picked cucumber and sweet corn. My lamb main was cooked to perfection and the joy of the ultimate cheese board with its Stilton and celery icecream scoops was genius and delicious. The menu changes all the time and the staff service is tip top. I know where I ll be spending my £100!

Had lunch there yesterday was disappointed with the food - tempura oysters very greasy mains were not very hot - overpriced for portion size. Hosting skills good but oversell on local produce

Fantastic food in a great location in Jersey. Found it through trip advisor for lunch and will definitely come back for both a casual meal or a special occasion. Highly recommended and was very impressed with how the chef mixed flavours, textures, temperatures and created remarkable dishes! The goat cheese starter was one of the best starters I've ever tried :)

The four of us couldn’t fault our meal from starters to coffee and dessert.
The staff couldn’t have been more friendly, we felt so welcome from the moment we stepped out the car. We enjoyed the homemade breads to start and couldn’t have been more impressed by the starters when they quickly arrived. We had the lobster tempura, scallops, stuffed courgette flower (special menu) and tempura oysters. The fact so many of the ingredients were locally sourced just made everything taste even better.
After this fantastic start we then had our mains: fish (of the day) with parmesan truffle chips, bass with truffled potato croquette, and the mackerel. Like the starters, each dish was absolutely delicious, so well thought out and balanced. None of us wanted to miss out on dessert, the chocolate and hazelnut brownie was perfect and gooey, the Bakewell tart was great and the vast selection of ice creams (loved the cinnamon and hazelnut caramel) were so wonderful and creamy with flavours to suit everyone!
We were then surprised by homemade chocolates which were brilliant. We are a family of good cooks but none of us could have expected or even cooked a better meal ourselves. Everything here was cooked to perfection. We can’t wait to return for another meal, clear out the ‘larder’ homemade chilli jam supplies, and couldn’t recommend the bass and lobster more strongly! Thank you!

From arriving at The Bass and Lobster, we received nothing but excellence! Fabulous greeting and service from Kirstie and her team, her knowledge and explanation of the menu made us excited to order and taste what was on offer! We were not disappointed. Oysters were sweet, best I’ve ever tasted! We ordered 4 but I had to have three as they were so delicious (my poor hubby)! We then had Chris and Chloe Gould’s scallops, broccoli, pea purée and crisp bacon curls, not forgetting Freddie’s quail eggs ... what can I say apart from my taste buds were exploding as this combo nailed it! I then had the Sea Bass and Tempura Lobster, my husband had Mackerel. Both fish cooked to perfection, complimented with purée and croquet and The Mackerel, Jersey potatoes and green beans - delicious! I had to try the Apple and cherry Bakewell tart with jersey ice cream and a creamy custard, it sounded too good to be true but I wasn’t disappointed. Compliments to the chef for the most delicious meal we have ever had the pleasure of tasting and Kirstie for your fabulous warm welcome and your teams impeccable Covid-19 precautions and service! This restaurant source all local ingredients, it’s fresh and creatively put together leaving you wanting more! I can’t speak highly enough and definitely recommend visiting, you won’t be disappointed and “we will be back” on our next visit. Thank you for a fabulous, memorable evening.

What a treat, everything from start for finish was perfect. The staff made us feel very comfortable with the social distancing whilst still making us feeling together. The food was amazing, we had the set menu which was fantastic value and all courses were delicious. After our lunch we had a final drink in the sun. Every thing was thought of from the home made breads and homemade oils, hummus and cordial to the outside seating areas (sun spots and shaded areas).
We had a great day and will definitely be back. Thank to the whole team for making our first girly lunch an absolute pleasure!

Our last meal before lockdown was at The Bass and Lobster on 21st March 2020, we now June, and with restrictions starting to lift we choose to go back to, it's been far too long, but it was worth the wait.
A stunning meal, tempura oysters with coconut mayo, courgette flowers stuffed with crab, seabass with lobster, we had the works. A huge thanks to Kirsty and the team, great service under difficult circumstances with social distancing.

Been a while since we have been because hadn't enjoyed last 2 trips and friends had also said they had been disappointed. We tried again and very happy that we did. Food was so tasty, fresh, creative and well presented. Menu had been refreshed as well as specials board with choice of set menu and a la carte. Plenty of choice, good wine selection, attentive staff and warm ambiance. Back to its best.

As an accomplished cooker, often single-handed who has provided sustenance and charm to visitors for many decades, often there are noticeable little things which take the shine off eating out .
So when a friend asked me to join her Birthday Party at the Bass and Lobster I was delighted to have the opportunity of going there for the first time, no reason for that, just wanted the occasion and time.
What surprised me was that as soon as I entered I could absorb a warm vibe. You knew that even if the food was different to what you would normally eat, it was going to be selected, cooked and served by professionals to a very high standard,
No disappointments, no complaints, no criticism. Even had draught beer on tap @ £4,50 a pint to refresh the palette at the outset of a memorable evening,
Tops Tops !!!

Both the food and the service were excellent. Warm welcome on arrival and particularly attentive service by Kirstie. Well worth the drive from St Brelade. We’ll be back again soon!

We went to The Bass and Lobster for my birthday on Wednesday evening, as usual the service was fantastic and the food excellent, I had seen them advertise the steamed pudding and couldn't wait to try it, it definitely lived up to my expectations. Please keep it on the menu. Thank you for a great evening.

Celebrated husband’s 60th birthday here with superb lunch for 18 people aged 4-80 years and everyone had a wonderful time. Food was delicious and portions were perfect. Kirstie was friendly and helpful and the overall service was excellent. We would definitely recommend it.

So good I had to write a review! I can’t actually think of a better restaurant in Jersey - this has to be no.1. Not only was the food amazing but atmosphere was first class. It takes something special to beat a home cooked Sunday lunch and Kirstie and her team have got this down to an art! We had seen a lot of great reviews and I’m not sure words alone can do it justice. Quite simply phenomenal. Well done!

I had dinner at the Bass & Lobster while visiting Jersey on Business recently. What a meal we had! The food & drink are top class, the setting is lovely but the real winner is the service. The staff are brilliant and so attentive, friendly and professional - led admirably by the lovely Kirsty and backed up by Dave who leads his brigade in the kitchen.
Can't praise it enough.

Fantastic flavour lead food that is only accentuated by its portion size. Kirsty really looked after us and there is also a local larder to purchase homemade goods. A perfect evening that's a little bit more special than your average Friday night out.
