We love eating here and its very friendly dog policy. We found the food excellent as always but the service always needs improvement. This time we were just finishing our main meal only to have the side dishes taken away. We thought maybe it was so another booking could have our table but then waited 30 minutes for dessert menu. The staff are always pleasant it is just the service which seems chaotic. Sometimes we have been asked if we ordered drinks and food three times in a row. It may be better to allocate staff to certain tables? We will keep coming as generally we really love the place and the food. Best wishes Martin

The food was excellent. The only negative was that we had a long wait for puddings. This would have been fantastic if we had a leisurely lunch planned, but we had some children keen to get out onto the beach. A very minor thing really but maybe if we had been advised of the wait we would have made different choices. We look forward to coming again! (maybe without the kids next time ;-)

Octopus has established itself amongst the very best seafood restaurants in the Channel Islands

Service was slow initially - were in the restaurant 45 mins before we were able to order. However food came quickly and was delicious as well as amazing value - a most enjoyable evening

Service was poor at the beginning of the meal. We waited 10 - 15 minutes to be asked even for a drink. Didn’t have what I ordered available either.

We booked a table for 8pm for two adults and two children. Our starters were fairly prompt, however our main courses arrived at 9.45pm long after most tables around us who had arrived after us. The restaurant wasn’t particularly full or busy and no explanation or apologies given for the incredibly slow service. The servers themselves were great but the speed, given we had two children, was appallingly slow. In the end it was almost 11.30pm when we managed to leave following our meal The food, atmosphere and views are incredible. I just hope that if we ever visit again we aren’t left waiting so long as this unfortunately had a negative effect on what would otherwise have been a fantastic evening

Wonderful as always. The addition of a patisserie dessert just made it for me! Price excellent, four of us paid less than in many a pub! If there was a negative no coffee offered and we left before anyone asked! But hey, I can make coffee at home!

We have not been to Octopus for a while but it never fails to live up to expectations. The food was fantastic, service was good and the sunshine was a bonus

Food was excellent, a wine list (with prices) would have been appreciated. £8 for a glass of Cava seems rather excessive!

We had a brilliant lunch at Octopus. The menu catered well for a seafood lover and a non-seafood lover, and two children. Thank you.

Lovely place, service and food all fab. My only negative is that despite booking in advance I was told that if outside area was full we couldnt book into it and would have to be indoors. Luckily this didnt happen as I would not have been happy after pre-booking to eat indoors on a beautiful sunny afternoon

We enjoyed the meal, quality of the food and the ambience. What let you down was the service - or rather lack of it! Whilst our waiter was courteous he was obviously run off his feet. It would have been nice if we were asked if we wanted a drink whilst we chose from the menu. As it was we had difficulty in attracting his attention to ask for one and then a long wait. It is this kind of detail that lets you down. Also it would make more money for the restaurant if diners were offered a drink whilst waiting! I appreciate staffing is a problem but I think insufficient training is given to ensure diners are made to feel ‘special’. Then they are more likely to return. It’s these little touches that make all the difference.
