Situated on the Chouet headland, Guernsey, Roc Salt Beach Café and Restaurant is a fantastic new restaurant serving up simply cooked food and stunning sea views.
The restaurant is the third venue from owners Steve and Jane Le Poidevin – the duo behind Muse Café and Mint Brasserie – and officially opened its doors on 3rd June 2014.
Since opening, Roc Salt Beach Café and Restaurant has been a big hit with locals and foodies alike, where its fish dishes continue to wow all who pass through the restaurant’s doors. However there is something on offer for all tastes at Roc Salt, with a variety of dishes that feature local Guernsey produce.
The views that are on offer at Roc Salt Beach Café and Restaurant are certainly appealing, but so is the design and layout of the restaurant, which is very inviting. The interior design of the restaurant is best described as shabby chic, with little touches here and there that highlight the restaurant’s culinary influences.

“Concept 360 is a highly professional and reliable company who delivered a restaurant of the highest standard.”

“Working with the team from A7 was a very stress free experience. The practice interpreted the brief and delivered a truly impressive project.”
Roc Salt Beach Café and Restaurant’s menu utilises the best local produce available in its dishes and as such regularly changes its menu in accordance with the seasons.

Those with a sweet tooth will also be pleased by a delicious array of desserts which include homemade apple and cinnamon brownie with custard or Guernsey vanilla ice cream; or mousse au chocolat.
