What can I say about this restaurant, it was gone down hill, the food is bland and the staff are not very attentive, the seem to be more focused chatting behind the bar and drinking rather than paying attention to their customers. The Irish waiter thinks he is funny when he is not. My recommendation to anyone is choose somewhere... More

We went to Doran's Courtyard Bistro on Monday 21 November after stopping at a few restaurants that were closed as it's a Monday night. We didn't have a booking, the restaurant was busy and we were given a table and made to feel very welcome. The food was amazing, the best filet steak I've had for a long time, melt... More

What a lovely place and brilliant food with a great atmosphere, such a shame it is to be demolished to make way for a New Hospital, if it was in England they would have to build round it with all the ancient stone work and beams. such a pity. Get here before it goes.

Just love this restaurant; have visited over the last two years on trips to Jersey. Have visited on my own and with family and have always been made to feel welcome. The staff are friendly and attentive. Quality food nicely served.

The ambience in this place is lovely. Dark and cosy, perfect for dark evenings. The Tennerfest menu was lovely. Overall, the staff in this place were really lovely. Friendly, helpful and jolly. Sadly, I have to say that the waitress on duty this particular night, let the team down. We requested tea and a glass of Pinot Grigio, only to... More

Went here last night and throughly enjoyed the whole experience. Like most restaurants they had a great value tennerfest menu which had such a good selection it was difficult to choose..... All the dishes were beautifully presented and full of great flavours. Wines and other drinks were very reasonably priced for such a quality establishment. Perhaps one of the things... More

Went for tennerfest on the Halloween weekend. Was slightly disappointed that they were not all dressed up this year, but this was taken care of with a free bottle of wine. As always, we had a great meal, great fun with the staff and a great time all round. I highly recommend the jammy dodgers. As always, steer clear of... More

Ate here midweek on a short trip to Jersey and thoroughly enjoyed an excellent meal. Scallops starter was well presented though the apple and celeriac puree was wholely unremarkable. My steak main was fantastic, a beautifully cooked thick tasty and juicy sirloin with great chips. My partner said her chicken dish was also extremely good. Service throughout was attentive without...

We came here for a end of season work diner party. Beautiful building, beautiful food & a warm welcoming feel to the place. Tenner fest menu is well worth doing. Everyone enjoyed themselves! The Sticky toffee pudding is to die for!! Thank you!
