Found Cafe Spice almost by accident as we normally walk along the front into St Helier. Excellent food and surprisingly busy for the evening of the 1st of January.

This is a great little restaurant set in one of the side street leading from the promenade in St Helier. The food is of a high standard and the staff are helpful and will advise you on any of the meals on the menu. Good value for money too.

Wow what a find! We were glad we had booked as this restaurant was fully booked. Delicious food, with such a wide selection, fabulous service and a super atmosphere made for a great evening, we would highly recommend and wish we lived closer! A highlight of our visit, and the complimentary new year drinks were a lovely extra touch.

We didn't have a reservation but the helpful host indicated that if we came back in around 20 mins he would hold a table for us. They confirmed that the majority of dishes could be adapted to be gluten free, and the host couldn't do anything more for us, even though the restaurant was packed. The food was excellent (especially... More

The food had good flavour and was reasonably priced. The waiter was helpful with recommending the best dishes and the staff were all very attentive. For a cheaper meal out this is a great place to go. We even got some complementary drink (not sure what it was but was nice and sweet!) to finish.

This has to be the best Indian restaurant in St Helier.... not to be missed the food is really tasty, and they will do menus off menu if they can. We all tasted each other's apart from the Madras for me everything was lovely.

We usually have an excellent meal here but last night a real disappointment. Staff very friendly as always. Service very slow, considering it was early and not even half full difficult to explain away. Food was insipid where usually the flavours are fantastic. Meal arrive in dribs and drabs, the plates were hot when put on table but by the... More

And that is saying something. For 10years Cafe Spice, which is owner run, has been my favourite restaurant in jersey and a must go place when we have friends visiting. Tonight it set the bar even higher, Moe the Manager was wonderful, he magic'd my favourite wine from somewhere, even thought it was not on the menu and during the... More

Most 'Indian' restaurants are in fact Bangladeshi owned. Staff in the kitchen are often Bangladeshis, so I liked Cafe Spice's approach of not trying to disguise this fact, and include some Bangladeshi dishes. However, the kitchen isn't strong enough to make this any different to the run of the mill high street restaurant. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, but... More

I booked this restaurant last week over the phone after reading so many positive reviews on here. The person I spoke to on the phone was extremely helpful and confirmed that the "early bird" menu would be back on for when I was visiting. Upon arrival, we were told that the tennerfest menu was the only one that was being... More
