Food at The Captains

The Tavern and Bistro at The Captain's have an enviable reputation for good food that has been built over many years.

As well as traditional bar meals, the menu features many of Ali & Del's personal favourites including Seafood Au Gratin and Lobster Thermidor as well as best sellers such as Steak and Stilton. 

Favourite dishes and the most popular, pan fried local Scallops with Tiger Prawns, and the Seafood Gratin with Local Lobster, Crab and Prawns, whilst seafood and fresh fish features prominently on the menu, home cooked ham, eggs and chips and the Captains Lasagne, meat or Veggie are also hugely popular.

Served from 12 noon until 9pm Everyday there are no concerns about missing the lunchtime deadline

The ambience is very relaxed and is frequented by locals from all over Guernsey which speaks volumes in itself. Despite a varied selection of other bars/restaurants in the area, many guests choose to dine in the Bistro every night* which is the best endorsement you can get.

You can view a sample of our menu below but we also offer a varied specials board featuring locally caught fresh fish and seafood.
