The crab / seafood casserole pots were delicious. My guests were very impressed by the food, location and atmosphere. As a regular customer all services were of the usual high consistency. Well done guys.

Drinks order incorrect on two occasions. One starter sent to wrong table resulting in rest of table being finished starters before one guest had had theirs. Sat down for dinner at 19:30, still not had main course at 21:00. All round poor service.

The service could be much better, took too long. Drink order was not correct first time round. Food served on paper is not ideal as hot food then melts the paper underneath and you either end up eating the paper or spending ages picking it off food.

We arrived on time and were shown to our table, however we were kept waiting and after 25 minutes I got up from my table and went to the bar to order drinks. The waitress, sorry the front of house manager as we were curtly informed, eventually came to take our order. The food was vastly overpriced for the quantity received, yes we know all about Guernsey as we live here. Great location, good atmosphere but wont be visiting again.

Service is marked down because I felt it was slow and one drinks order was forgotten about until reminded. Otherwise excellent food in a beautiful setting with friendly staff.

We liked the location, but found the atmosphere too hectic with waiters constantly rushing around our table and loud and "fast-beat" music playing. A more relaxed atmosphere would do the place good. The food was alright, although not exceptional in any way.

I love Octopus. It probably my favourite restaurant. The only thing that ever lets it down is the at times it's very slow service. We did have to wait over an hour for our food to come and had to ask to have our order taken after some time. However it didnt in any way detract from how much we enjoyed the evening end the staff were very friendly.

Another amazing night at the Octopus. I took some colleagues from our London and Jersey offices and they were all delighted with the food and the stunning views. The guys couldn't stop talking about it the next day and said they would definitely be returning. The service was amazing as always - thanks for taking care of us - Delphine and the team.

We had a table booked for 12noon. Staff were very eager to take our drink order but had no prosecco (!). Had to consult a drinks list off a silly ipad app which is hard to see when outdoors. It took ages to take our food order, in fact we had to persuade someine tho come over. My main course arrived at 1pm. An hour after sitting down! My husbands took longer still. Disappointing because the food and location are great. Also I appreciate everyone wants to sit outside on a nice sunny day but the 6 people who were squeezed on the table for 4 next to us may as well have come and sit with us. It would have been more comfortable all round!

Again it was a beautiful evening, the food was amazing and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The service was brilliant and timing perfect for us. The restaurant is perfect for an evening meal but if you go expecting to be in and out in an hour then you will Likely think the service is slow, it's not, you're in a rush!

Fab service. I shouldn't compare, but steak at Petit Bistro cooked to a better standard. Dessert was amazing. Take a jacket - it's cold when the doors are open.
