I loved the moules i had with the blue cheese , best I've ever had and i lived in france for years, and then i had the flat bread with goats cheese, recommened by a good friend, which was lovely. Looking forward to tasting something else from the menu very soon , thankyou

Food and atmosphere were really good but service was very slow and we weren’t offered any drinks for over an hour despite asking twice for a drinks menu. Wonder if having a server dedicated to the bar/drinks orders would help?

On our arrival, we were shown straight to our table ...no conversation, smile etc from the staff member. We were given the iPad to choose some drinks which we did. We then chose our food. We twice had to ask for the wine list after we had chosen our food. When our food was delivered we were given spinach as a side order rather than the beetroot we had asked for......the waiter then questioned me .....was I sure!!!! Neither of us felt comfortable, we didn’t feel we could ask the staff questions about the menus, there was no engagement, friendliness, or smile.....it was like we were nothing more than a nuisance to the staff. Really disappointing, would think twice about going again and recommending to others.

We had to remind staff about our drink orders a few times. One staff member seemed new. Very polite and was trying really hard. Another staff member seemed really annoyed with her for forgetting simple things. She did really well. Food was good as always and service seems quicker than previous visits. Will be returning soon. Thanks again.

Excellent venue, food and service very good. Need to make sure you have enough time to fully appreciate the restaurant as service can be a little slow so if you are in a hurry then say so if not enjoy a relaxed pace.

We waited exactly an hour between our starters and mains. Steak was undercooked as opposed to our request.

This is truly a first class restaurant in Guernsey. The food is out of this world. Because of this it is very (very!) popular. Our reservations for 7pm was accepted on condition we would vacate our table by 9pm. We did not mind, we prefer an early dinner. At times the restaurant can perhaps be too busy and its staff have difficulty keeping up with serving. Nevertheless I unreservedly recommend Octopus.

Nice place with stunning views. We booked a table to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. Starters were amazing, well seasoned and well presented. Mains again, very nicely cooked and really good flavours coming through, altho i think £20 is a litle over price for a piece of fish with no sides, but cant complain about tge quality. The only let down in terms of food were the deserts. Xl eclair flavours were very newtral ant the choux pastry itself was way too crunchy. Apple tart to me again cinnamon overpowered everything else and the berries and merringue altho it look very pretty and the berries were very fresh, the different types of merringue were soft and didnt bring that crunchy texture that the dish needed. Service were good and verry attentive always topping up our glaces and checking if all was ok often but not over the top. But as i mentioned before we came to celebrate our anniversary and ive put it on the comments box at the time of booking and not once it was mentioned by the staff. I must say in 9 years that we go out celebrating our anniversary this was the first restaurant that didnt put a "touch" to make us feel special. Working in the industry myself i know how this days are special to the guests. I know my review is long and detailed specially on the negati points but overall it was a good experience therefore giving a 4 star rating. Would i come back??? Yes i would. Big thanks to the team and specially to Mike, big respect!
