Ocean Restaurant at The Atlantic Hotel

Le Mont de la Pulente, ST BRELADE, JE3 8HE

4 rosettes

More than 40 years after it first opened its doors, The Atlantic Hotel has aged extremely well. Still family owned to this day, the hotel on Jersey's stunning west coast has been lovingly maintained and updated over the years, and it's a luxurious, glamorous place to stay with a welcoming, relaxed feel and a first-class restaurant amongst its many attractions (the others include six acres of sub-tropical gardens and a championship golf course next-door). The Ocean Restaurant has views out over the gardens towards the sea beyond, and a design that reflects its coastal setting, with a colour palette of blues, whites and beiges, comfortable hand-crafted furniture and modern artwork on the walls. It's a wonderfully light and airy setting, classic in style but at the same time contemporary, in which to appreciate the undeniable talents of executive chef Mark Jordan and his team. There's a seasonal à la carte and a series of daily-changing set menus, including a seven-course tasting and, at the other end of the spectrum, a spectacular value lunch menu. Whichever you choose, each is chock-full of splendid Jersey produce, while dishes demonstrate some finely tuned technical skills, and a sharp eye for presentation. Superb goats' cheese and olive bread, and an amuse-bouche of a parsnip espuma with real depth of flavour, accompanied by a perfectly timed roasted scallop, might begin proceedings. Next, a starter entitled 'sea shore' comprises a mixture of local fish (extremely high quality and precisely cooked) presented on a plate alongside some foraged seaweed and anchovy 'sand', with a tomato essence poured over at the table. Main course might be loin of roe deer - accurately cooked and full of rich natural flavour - with a smooth celeriac purée, subtly spiced pear and a vanilla scented jus, or you might choose pan-roasted fillet of Jersey brill (exemplary quality again) with melt-in-the-mouth braised oxtail, salsify and wild mushrooms and parmesan shavings. Vegetarians are admirably well catered for here, with a dedicated vegetarian menu alongside the regular carte, offering the likes of potato and garden herb gnocchi with parmesan cream to start, followed by baked tian of aubergine, garlic and thyme roasted vegetables, black olive and salsa verde. Decisions get really tough at dessert stage, with a 70 per cent cocoa Guanaja chocolate jelly with chocolate streusel and coffee ice cream vying for your attention with a colourful and creative pud of raspberry and banana granité with a pistachio biscuit and salted milk chocolate and caramel mousse. The wine list has plenty to entice, and head sommelier Sergio dos Santos is a safe pair of hands should you need any assistance.
