Tides Restaurant

Tidal view dining at its best...

Tides Restaurant

In Tides, our focus is simple. Top-quality, traceable, seasonal ingredients, lovingly prepared by people who care, but above all, relaxation, fun and good times.

First opening its doors to guests in 1881 as the brainchild of eccentric socialite Mr J.W. Chapman, the Somerville is one of the longest-running hotels in Jersey, making Tides one of the oldest running restaurants in Jersey. Still, much like our founder, our attitude is far from stuffy… 

In Tides, we invite you to step back into the splendour of the Victorian era, to savour, celebrate and make memories with friends and family in our classy, vibrant and relaxed new restaurant. Watching the tide ebb and flow in St Aubin’s bay over a delicious meal and the world's finest wines, in one of Jersey’s best-ranked restaurants.

For starters, kick-start your meal with a delicious curiosity cocktail or classy coupe de Champagne in our brand-new eccentric bar ‘Voyager'. A time we promise to be ‘Bang up to the Elephant’!

Next, revel in our refined, Modern British menu that celebrates the best produce in the British Isles with sensational seafood, mouth-watering meats and delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes from head chef Chris Witham and his eager team in the kitchen.

Here, we follow the seasons and take time to choose suppliers so whether from farm or fishery to fork, you know to expect the highest possible level of quality and sustainability throughout.

Finally, finish your meal the right way with a decadent dessert from our loving pastry team or a selection of fantastic British artisan cheeses. A fitting end to a fabulous feast, and one that rightly deserves a pairing of Port, Sauternes or several Espresso Martinis!

Tides has always been a firm Jersey favourite for small functions, and it’s easy to see why. 

In our private dining rooms, you can rest easy and enjoy the company of loved ones, cradled in the comfort of privacy, award-winning service and decades of experience.

Whether for a romantic moment with that special someone, a fun-filled meal with your ‘Chacaboos’, or quality time with family, Tides restaurant is the perfect place for any occasion and a must on your list of things to do in Jersey.

"Absolutely delicious meal with great service and fabulous view”

My husband and I had dinner at the Tides restaurant on a Saturday night and thought it was one of the most enjoyable meals we have ever had. The food was delicious and great value. We were seated by the window and the view of the lights across the bay was spectacular. The staff were friendly and the service overall was impeccable.
Would love to go back and would definitely recommend.
