Review of Waterfront Brasserie at Radisson Blu Jersey

The Waterfront Brasserie at the Radisson Blu hotel in St Helier on the Channel Island of Jersey is in a wonderful location at Elizabeth Marina with views over to Elizabeth Castle. I dined at the brasserie, on a complimentary basis, selecting from the three course set menu, which cost £19 for two courses and £22 for three courses, including a glass of wine, in May 2010.

My starter was a pepper and green bean terrine with salad served with some very tasty baked bread.

My main course of Chicken Enchiladas was served with potato wedges and a side dish of mashed potato and ratatouille.  While the enchiladas were very good, I thought that the side dish was an inappropriate accompaniment, as the meal was already pretty starchy and rich in tomato.  I think that a green salad would be much better.

The carrot cake was absolutely lovely, rich, moist and with a hint of spice.

I think that the Brasserie Waterfront  is good value for money, as it’s a great location and the quality of the food is very good. The restaurant just needs to think a bit more about appropriate accompaniments for the main course.
