About

The Salty Dog Bar & Bistro is an institution. Cherished by locals and sought out, or a lucky discovery by visitors, it is a restaurant built on a reputation for fabulous food and friendly staff.
The food is a wonderful mix of flavours, both traditional and exotic, but with quality, freshness and beautiful presentation at it’s heart. Locally caught fish, “Genuine Jersey” meat, seasonal vegetables and herbs are skilfully brought together by a tightly knit team of professional, passionate Chefs, to create mouth watering food that will make your taste buds dance.

Often copied, but never quite matched, a romantic meal for two, a family celebration, or just a treat for great food, “The Salty”, as regulars call it, will touch your soul and invite you back for more.

Reservations, a must, but if you’re in the village, you never know, you might sneak a spot.

Good food. However, disappointing that no bar available for pre-dinner drinks and one of the three promotional cocktails unavailable.

We walked from St Helier and the food was well worth the walk.

Lovely place for a meal in the evening and I expect any other times will be equally as good.

Really pleased we went, would definitely go again if the opportunity presented.

We went to this restaurant 2 years ago & couldn’t fault it, this time the woman that served us wasn’t at all pleasant. She was a manager or person in charge of the waiters. She was abrupt & she put us off going again. Shame as this was our favourite restaurant last time we visited Jersey.

We were on a 4 night mini break in Jersey. This was our sixth trip to the island but our first visit to the Salty Dog. We decided to visit following excellent reviews. We were not disappointed and had a great experience. The menu including the Tennerfest had plenty of choice. I had the Prawns in a hot pan to start and then Sole fillets in a tempura batter with avocado. I loved the Sole, 10/10 but I found the Prawns a bit too hot and took so long to cool down. My husband had Calamari to start which was very good followed by the "Reef and Beef" The beef was cooked perfectly. He also had the sticky toffee pudding which was truly delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was excellent and would recommend anyone to eat there.

A superb welcome when we arrived and we were not rushed at all. We were asked if we wanted a drink in the bar first and then taken to our table. Food was outstanding together with the service. We will definitely be returning.

The Salty Dog never ceases to amaze me. ALWAYS consistently good food and friendly helpfull staff. Who could want more !? The entire team work very hard to bring you a lovely meal and lets face it, it shows in the wonderful presentation of not just the food, but the ambiance of the restaurant as well. If you have not tried the Greywacke Riesling you are missing out on a wine treat, one of may fave wines and delicious with some Lobster or Bream.

Great food and a good price, will certainly come again.

Only criticism, a group were sat at the next table which was not necessary, so could have been more private

Very busy on Sunday night and the 2 waiting staff were starting to struggle as it filled up.

Really welcoming from the moment we stepped inside. Great service from beginning to end. Food was outstanding, the oysters were so fresh and the Bouillabaisse main was absolutely amazing. Wine also great and whilst not cheap for the quality of food and service it is great value. Highly recommended.

Fantastic restaurant with fantastic food. The menu was tricky to choose from as everything sounded (and looked) delicious. My main course (penang curry) was the best I have ever tasted. Staff were friendly, efficient and it really was a great, faultless evening. thank you.

Chose this for a big celebratory meal and it was lovely. A large party (18) in on the same evening and did get rather too noisy but other than that all great. Food was absolutely delightful even for some of the fussier ones. Looked great on the website and did not disappoint.

I had scallops and crab linguini and had diarreaha the following day. The scallops were OK but the linguini was buried in tomato sauce. I had both these dishes at Pedro’s tonight which were way better handled, with simple wine, oil and herb presentation.

The service last Tuesday was really slow because the floor was totally occupied with a large group. When our first course arrived the wine was nowhere to be seen. Again, learn from Pedro’s, their service is very friendly and efficient, and they invite feedback on the spot.

Apologies for being a pain, but I taught tourism and hospitality at university for ten years, and with respect, your service product needs a bit of fine tuning.

Always come here when we visit Jersey. Staff friendly and attentive without being invasive or loitering. Food is exceptional. One of the desserts wasn’t up to scratch but they deducted it from the bill without being asked. One of my top three restaurants in the whole of Jersey.

We first came here a couple of years ago with some friends when we were on holiday and decided we definitely wanted to come get for lunch on our anniversary
We had a fabulous meal again this time and were not disappointed
A lovely bottle of champagne on arrival followed by the squid which we shared and then we had the Salty Dog Surf and Turf
We couldnt manage pud but did have a chocolate martini and an espresso martini which were a superb end to the meal
Well this was the best lunch out for a very long time !!!!
Next time we come to Jersey we will definitely be coming back for more
Thanks for making our anniversary special!!!
