A starkly modern hotel with acres of plate glass facing the harbour, The Royal Yacht has copious balconies shaped like waves to echo its maritime location. It most definitely isn't an actual yacht. The contemporary vibe continues on the inside, too, where there is a host of dining and drinking opportunities, the pick of the bunch being the snazzy Restaurant Sirocco with its huge terrace affording views over the harbour. The stylish, smart, and colourful space is the setting for some creative modern food based firmly around the island's superb natural resources. Dishes arrive looking pretty as a picture, a starter of succulent butter-poached lobster, say, with cocoa butter, parsnip and caviar, while another opener sees smoked foie gras partnered with blood orange. Top-notch Jersey lamb arrives in a well-judged main course, with potato terrine, peas, lambs lettuce and onion while the island's beef is showcased as succulent fillet and tender cheek, served with morels and asparagus. Among desserts, an apple crumble soufflé is light and full of flavour, as is its accompanying apple sorbet, or if you're feeling indecisive go for a delightfully well-tempered chocolate sphere with salted caramel and honeycomb.
