The little island of Jersey, is for now the place I call home. I’ve found some wonderful charms of island life – from the beautiful beaches, the green lanes and the honesty boxes to the abundance of good restaurants. Here I’ll share (with you) my favourites and keep on adding (more) as I go along.

This is a great video entitled ‘Little Jersey’ by Max Burnett that gives you some idea of what Jersey has to offer.

  • The Grill for the best steak
  • Little Thai (or Dicq shack on the beach if the weather is good)
  • Portelet Bay Café for seaside, wood-fired pizzas – this is new and has made its way to the top of our list because of the atmosphere, view and delicious food on offer. An absolute must.
