A few weeks ago, I had the amazing experience of exploring the hidden treasures from the channel islands of Jersey. With its alluring, magnificent white sandy beaches and turquoise blue ocean, sunny skies and warm summer days, its natural, beautiful landscape is mysteriously captivating….
Jersey is situated over 100 miles from mainland Britain and just 14 miles from France. The island is steeped in historical history, castles and certainly, has the flavour and influence of French culture and cuisine. If you are a lover of good cuisine, Jersey offers a cornucopia of quality restaurants, with a choice of European & eastern fusion and exquisite French delicacy! To eat out, as a professional blogger and vegetarian/vegan ‘foodie’, I had to explore further…… The variety of restaurants eaten at, during the stay (which was only 3 days), next time shall be for longer, were all very enjoyable and impressive. However, the Quayside Bistro & Grill restaurant, I have to say, was a fantastic dining experience! We arrived unexpectedly late on a Saturday evening, last-minute recommendation, with no reservation, the staff were more than accommodating to give us a last minute reservation. We had a choice for the outside (it was a bit chilly), so we decided to eat inside instead.
The manager assisted us to our table and we both felt like ‘Goddesses’ for the entire dining experience 🙂 The service was impeccable and our waitress Anna, very attentive and informed about the food and wine menu. Dining as a vegetarian/vegan, the variety was impressive and for a vegetarian/vegan palette, the flavours were exquisitely & perfectly blended. Our choice of wine, French Chardonnay, perfectly chilled and our waitress made sure to top up our glasses, with no effort.
The ambience ~ chilled, very romantic, with a slight youthful buzz in the air, friendly and a beautiful view of the yacht marina! We shall return, thank you. As an overall dining experience ~ hospitality, ambience, service, superb food ~ top notch 🙂 see my recent review on Trip Advisor...
The pristine and beautiful Channel Islands of Jersey takes a short trip from London, a flight just under one hour or via Ferry (takes slightly longer, if you have time for leisurely travel).
Jersey is certainly an enriching experience and cannot wait to return in the not too distance future!
