Sitting just off the coast of Normandy, the Channel Islands are Crown Dependencies meaning their inhabitants are British citizens. The proximity to France - combined with the influence of the United Kingdom - results in a unique blend of cultures. This, along with the glorious local produce - think Jersey Royals, asparagus and scallops - has resulted in a thriving and exciting restaurant scene earning the islands more than their fair share of Michelin stars.
This collection highlights some of the best restaurants in the Channel Islands, giving some particular inspiration for the best places to eat in Jersey. St Helier boasts not only the legendary Bohemia and Ormer, establishments where you'll find picked-that-morning vegetables and freshly caught seafood throughout their menus, but also the Don Street Deli, Ormer's reasonably priced sister venue selling sandwiches, cakes and the finest imported produce from around Europe. For more Michelin star dining across the island try Mark Jordan at the Beach in St Peter, offering superb food in a relaxed environment.
