The agriculture on the Island is a great resource to the Jersey restaurants, but it’s not just the land that provides delicious, local ingredients. The waters that surround Jersey produce an abundance of top quality shellfish, including lobster, fresh scallops and oysters and simpler dishes such as Jersey plaice, seabass and mackerel, each as delicious as it is fresh.
The Island hosts a number of food festivals throughout the year; the Tennerfest is a favourite for visitors and locals alike, you can choose from a variety of menus and have a meal for £10. If seafood is your thing try the Gouray Fête de la Mer, a celebration in the harbour of Gorey serving traditional seafood alfresco.
Restaurants in Jersey are extremely proud to use local ingredients and fresh produce in the dishes on their menus and would love you to come and try them for yourself, the site includes a variety of restaurants to suit every taste. Jersey bars and Jersey pubs, Jersey cafés are friendly and diverse.
Jersey is a holiday paradise, but you may be surprised to learn that almost half of its 45 square miles is given over to agriculture, including the internationally renowned Jersey Royal potatoes and purebred Jersey cows – providing beef, milk and cream.
