Find this top-class restaurant perched high above St Peter Port in what was built as an 18th century manor.
The dining room, however, has a modern feel with bare boards and abstract artwork.
The kitchen, under the leadership of Neil Maginnis, also blends tradition with more modern influences - with an ever evolving seasonal menu, strong on the excellent local seafood.
An early summer snapshot brought 'Crispy Duck Confit Pancakes, with a Mixed Leaf Salad, Toasted Sesame Seeds, Chili & Teriyaki Dressing, with a Kumquat Reduction'; 'Pan-Fried Scallops, Wrapped in Pancetta, Green Bean & Artichoke Salad, Shallot & Pine Nut Dressing'; 'Baked Crottin Goats Cheese with Sundried Tomatoes, Garlic Croûtons & a Basil & Balsamic Dressing' and 'Smoked Loin of Rabbit with a Smoked Bacon & Leek Risotto, Pancetta & Red Wine Jus' among the starters.
'Asparagus Risotto with Grilled Crottin Goats Cheese, Artichokes, Roquette Leaves and Pesto & Sundried Tomato Dressing'; 'Fillet of Sea Bass with Cauliflower Cream, Pan-Fried Pak Choi & Warm Shellfish Vinaigrette'; 'Monkfish & Guernsey Scallops with a Chorizo & Crabmeat Risotto, a Cherry Confit & Lemon Grass Foam' and 'Roasted Rack of Lamb with a Rosemary-Infused Fondant Potato, Grilled Tomato & Caramelised Shallots' listed among the mains.
Those with a sweet tooth might be tempted by 'Hot Valrhona Chocolate Fondant with a Caramel Sauce & Vanilla Ice Cream'; 'Warm Apple Tarte Tatin'; 'Fresh Fruit Salad with Fromage Frais Ice Cream & Tuile Basket' or 'Light Coconut Mousse on a Dark Chocolate Shell, with a Banana & Passion Fruit Sorbet & Chocolate Delice' to round off your meal.
