We went there for the bottomless dumplings, they were a decent size and really delicious. It was fairly priced for all you could eat and a drink. The dumplings took around 10-15 minutes to come out but they were good at taking regular orders to keep the flow. The only thing I could fault is the amount of soy sauce, we were given a tiny shallow soy sauce bowl for the two of us to share and when we ran out and asked for more were still given only one little dish. So we had to ask every 5 mins for more which got tiring. They also didn’t supply chop sticks, which again is minimal but eating dumplings with a fork was just odd. Atmosphere and music were really good and the staff were friendly and accomodating.

Hi Raine many thanks for sharing your feedback and the kind words about the staff and atmosphere. We are always looking to improve the experience and have ordered a heap more chopsticks for this event. We are also looking at different ways to provide the soy sauce. Many thanks and see you again soon!

Saturday night quick dinner before a function. Food was ok but it’s really a local bar that serves some food. Very noisy. Probably our mistake in picking the venue. Would come back for drink & bar snacks.

Hi David - apologies for the timing we had a large function in the back room and the atmosphere would have been pretty busy. Hope to see you again soon!

Nice night and despite the place being packed with punters there to see the Fire Artists ,the service was attentive albeit a little slow and the food was great. Very polite and reponsive waiting staff ..good job Morestons.It would be excellent to see more of this type of entertainment in St Heliers .

I would consider it has the best chips I have ever had and the atmosphere and the lighting were perfect for any events i.e dating. Definitely coming back next time if I stop by the bay:)

Felt the small dishes ( eg bao’s etc) were a bit expensive for what they were. We would have liked to ordered a selection but it was too expensive as a lunch.

The beef brisket was good. However, I was very dissatisfied with my experience at Moretons. The drinks were very average, the starting platters apart from the beef brisket were terrible especially considering what we paid. The service was less than average - i appreciate that our waitress was probably tired from a long shift so maybe that she lacked care into how she was treating us. But i did not appreciate her coughing over the food! Then when I went to use the restaurant gift card I was given it was declined (which is not Moretons fault) but no one behind the bar could offer advice on how to use it despite me calling in advance double checking that the card would work. It was my partner and I's anniversary and we had been looking forward to celebrating it for weeks. I left almost in tears after what was meant to be a really special night. I will be telling my friends and family not to bother visiting Moretons.
