Portelet Bay Cafe is a family run cafe located right on the beach at Portelet Bay in Jersey, Channel Islands. The bay is set between the conservation areas of Noirmont and Portelet Common and is outstandingly beautiful.
The cafe specialises in authentic wood fired pizza as well as seasonal fresh fish during high season and salads always using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Our philosophy is to provide the highest quality and the freshest food possible, therefore we have a small menu which changes often to reflect this. All our puddings and cakes are homemade.

Access to the cafe is either by steps down to the bay or boat. You can not drive to the cafe, but we believe this makes it all the more special and this unique location, far from traffic and roads, offers the perfect place to sit and relax. We are pioneers of green and sustainable travel and promote the bus service (12A)  as well as EVie bikes , boat travel, paddle boarding,  kayaking and of course, walking. The atmosphere is extremely warm, relaxed and welcoming, and we also love the company of well behaved dogs on leads!

Since we purchased the site in 2014, we have been uncovering the gardens above the cafe which historically were a quarry and then part of the Jersey Holiday Village. We have uncovered the original steps and walkways throughout the gardens and have created dry granite walls from the original quarry spoil to make cotils and borders for plants, herbs and vegetables for the restaurant. We have been told we have created a ‘reptiles paradise’ and we couldn’t be more proud .

We have indoor and outdoor seating. We have a small but decent selection of wine and beer. Booking is essential during the summer season.

Please read our blog ‘how it all began’ for more information on the history of the cafe and our project.





At Portelet Bay Cafe we advise advanced booking on the weekends and during high season as we get extremely busy. If you are interested in booking a table please get in touch. Major credit cards accepted. (regretfully excluding American Express)

We make every effort to reduce packaging and plastics and therefore do not sell plastic bottles of water or ice creams in wrappers. All of our ice-cream is Jersey Dairy and served in a cone or in a bowl. We grow our own herbs and edible flowers in the gardens above the cafe, and re-use packaging wherever possible before we recycle. We do not allow balloons or plastic sprinkles on the terrace or in the restaurant. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
