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.

Imaginative food, cooked, presented and served perfectly. Our waitress was exceptional. Despite being remarkably busy, she still took time to converse with us. Our favourite island restaurant.

My first visit to the Salty Dog but will definitely not be my last! Wonderful dining experience. Great food and good value for money. It was about £100 for 3 of us. Well done to all the team, we had a great evening. Thank you.

Had Mussels for main course and they were really small. It was hard work to get through them all. The main problem was we waited 25 minutes after finishing for someone to come over to ask about dessert and no one came and the menu said it would take 15 minutes for dessert so we left and had dessert at another better service restaurant. Poor service ruins a meal and it did.

Only booked a few hours before but made to feel very welcome from the moment we stepped foot inside. The food was freshly prepared and really good, beautifully presented. We never felt rushed but did feel looked after. The batter used for the Calamari starter and fish main course was so light and tasty. A wonderful dining experience, thank you.

First time I have been in salty dog for 3 years was always good but have to say has really stepped up since last visit - 3 of us eating (including one veggie) all had great meals , some of the sides are also very imaginative... if I had one minor point and one that would stop us eating their a little more frequently would be a need for a little more variety on veggie options

My favourite for years and still my favourite. Excellent service, food, ambience and location.
Great set menu and early bed specials.
The menu could do with some new options though. (Constructive criticism)
Many thanks

Good food & fair service but pricey.
My partner asked for dairy only cheese on the cheese board & it came with 2 goats/sheeps cheese. The waitress gave him a list of the cheeses of the day but hadn't a clue what they were & neither did he so he took a chance which didn't pay off!

We ate twice at The Salty Dog whilst on Jersey recently, the food was good quality very tasty and good size portions. The staff were helpful and polite. The wine list had a good selection to suit all tastes.

We went here on Thursday and Tuesday. Tuesday was faultless , I had fish and chips and my husband had prawns then a curry. We went back Thursday as it was so good, but was disappointed with my desert, rhubarb roulade, I think they had defrosted it, as the meringue, if that’s what it was meant to be, was soggy, but the rhubarb was rock hard, so had to leave it (didn’t say anything as husband doesn’t like me complaining!)
Rest of meal was great, I had tempura sole and prawns and husband had steak.

Greeted and seated politely, made to feel welcome. Excellent menu, service and attention was just right. The food was outstanding - Can’t rate it enough! Every mouth was full of flavour and cooked to perfection, presentation excellent. Very happy.
Only slight hiccup - on our part, being tourists, allocated time parking so dessert was slightly rushed....our fault.
Table near us was a birthday party, all very jolly but the host (I presume) was ever so slightly loud and talked a lot! Unavoidable I guess....

Was so disappointed, visit jersey a couple of times a year last ate at the salty dog about a year ago which we thoroughly enjoyed. So sorry on Monday June 18th it wasn’t at all good, service fine but the food poor, although the price was adjusted accordingly it didn’t make up for the let down.

Nous étions venus pour le fish and chips et nous n'avons pas été déçu car conforme à nos attentes. Serions nous restés plus longtemps sur Jersey, sans doute aurions nous renouvelé l'expérience pour gouter à plus de spécialités.
