Our booking was for 5 adults but we were original placed on a table suitable for 4. they were very quick to move us when requested. We did find that our waiter didn't ask if we wanted any drinks very often which meant we all only had 2 for the entire meal. The waiter also didn't have great knowledge of the desserts and we had to repeat our order a number of times. But this could have been due to him being new or another reason. It didn't effect the quality of our food and everyone enjoyed the meal very much.

Ridiculously understaffed for a Friday night. 2 hours to get a main and had to follow up on everything we ordered as it was forgotten. We have dined many times at Octopus but this experience was by far our worst.

Excellent food. Bit of a blip on service at outset but quickly remedied with apology and it wasn't that slow anyway.

I remain a huge fan of Octopus; my personal experience has always been one of outstanding food, a fabulous environment and excellent service. The food doesn't come out at lightning speed, but that is because it is individually made. If you want fast food, go to McDonalds!

The service was brilliant. We had a lovely northern lady with dark hair who was very personable and made great conversation, without being too much. It felt like we already knew her and she made great recommendations. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious, in good time.

The service was terrible, I booked to table for 6pm and only started having our main course at 8pm. Then when we received the bill, the food had been doubled!!

The food and atmosphere are always fabulous; easily in my top three places to eat in Guernsey; probably edging it at Number One just now...

The only criticism was that there is only a two hour slot however you did allocate us longer as you were short staffed and the food wasn’t coming out quick enough the food is amazing and we will definitely back on our return visit next year

As I had made a special request to have a specific table I was SO pleased to find out that we did indeed have the specified round table that gave us ample room! We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxed lovely lunch and didn’t feel under any pressure to be finished at a certain time. The food was excellent and we shall be coming back again soon!

Fantastic location and atmosphere. The service was great. My fish stew was lovely. Kids loved their moules frites. Only query we had was the adult main moules bowl seemed the same size as the kids. Could of done with a slightly bigger bowl for adults. Other than that was a lovely meal and will book again when we return to the island.

Surly waiters and tough steamed buns. Great views and good eggs benedict but the bar smelled funky. Shame.

Octopus is without doubt my favourite restaurant, I just love it. My friend and I went for an early bird and the set menu. Food was excellent. The service is notoriously slow, but if you are aware of this then it's not an issue, besides who wants to rush dinner !!

I had a table booked for 6.30 pm ,we had to wait for fifteen minutes until this was ready ,then almost half an hour before our food order was taken and then almost another hour before the food arrived. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the setting is second to none but unfortunately waiting for the food for so long was very disappointing. We asked at one point had we been forgotten . I am very sorry to say I wouldn’t recommend anyone to the Octopus especially if they wanted a quick meal and I will not be returning unless I hear from friends that the service has drastically improved .
