Review on La Frégate

High above the narrow streets of St Peter Port, this sympathetically refurbished eighteenth-century manor looks down on the harbour and 800-year-old Castle Cornet. In contrast to the oak panelling and period features of the hotel itself, the dining room is cool, airy and contemporary – thanks to bare boards, big arched windows, abstract artwork and Zen-like floral arrangements.

The restaurant menu offers meat and fish in local measure (as you might expect from the location) and the kitchen points up creative modern European ideas with influences from the orient. Herm oysters and crab risotto topped with smoked scallops rub shoulders with seared tuna sashimi layered with a pineapple crisp or salad of peppered rare beef fillet with beetroot carpaccio, Parmesan and salad leaves.

It's the same story when it comes to main courses, which could range from fillets of sea bass on spinach with local mussels and saffron dill sauce or grilled lobster with Champagne sauce to crispy duck breast served with roasted sweet potato, pak choi and bitter orange jus. Classic crêpes suzette and hot chocolate fondant typify the choice of desserts, and the French-led wine list has some intriguing bottles at bearable prices.
