10 Tennerfest Menus To Try This Year

 

It's Tennerfest time again. And time to embrace the concept of all of our wonderful local chefs showcasing their talents with tempting menus at reasonable prices. So whether you need a nudge to try a new venue, or simply an excuse to head out to your favourite restaurant for a catch up with friends, we've scanned the new Guernsey menus to produce a list, naturally, to try for 2022.  

 

Restaurant

 

1.  Cobo Bay Hotel 

The summer sunsets may be slipping away, but there are still so many reasons to head over to the West coast for dinner. The Cobo Bay has one of the best value Tennerfests on offer, with an extensive menu to suit all tastes and three courses for £20. They’re also serving an ‘Alternative Afternoon Tea By The Sea’, that looks really tempting. Choose five mini dishes for £15, with a selection that includes asian beef wraps, sticky BBQ belly pork, savoury choux buns, and of course, homemade scones. All served with Fairtrade teas and coffees or a half pint beer or cider, we reckon it's worth a visit. 

 

2.  Crêpe Maison

There’s a definite continental feel to the Crêpe Maison menu, with a cup of Breton cidre on arrival to set the scene. As you would expect, the menu is full of French favourites. From crêpes and galettes to classic dishes such as Soupe à l’Oignon and Coq au Vin, there’s a good selection on offer. The menu is available for dinner Monday through to Saturday, with live music on Saturday evenings. If you’re looking to enhance the French experience, you can add a bottle of Breton cidre for just £10. Brut or doux, the choice is yours.

 

3.  Balthazar

The Balthazar menu this year is pretty unique. Billed as ‘an occasion in itself’ the Hot Seafood platter is a selection of oysters, monkfish, prawns, crab, scallops and moules, served with fries and dips. At £56 for two people, it’s stretching the Tennerfest definition a bit, but we’re letting them off. Available daily for lunch and dinner, so book up, settle in and enjoy.

 

4.  Koi Koi

If you're up for a bit of Asian fusion, Koi Koi has the menu for you. There’s the dumplings, sushi and curry you’d expect, but there’s also a cheeseburger in there to cater for all tastes. Koi Koi also has an extensive drinks menu too if you’re in the mood, so as this menu is only available Tuesday - Thursday, with evening dining from 6pm - 7pm, you could make a night of it.

 

5.  La Piazza

La Piazza has a great selection of dishes, with over a dozen starters and mains to choose from, and almost as many dessert options. With good food and friendly service, this four-course lunch or dinner menu represents good value for money. Tucked away in Trinity Square, La Piazza is always a popular Tennerfest choice, so you'd better be quick if you want to book a table. 

 

6.  The Imperial Hotel 

If you’re thinking of combining your Tennerfest dinner with an out of town staycation package, The Imperial Hotel is offering dinner, bed and breakfast for £130 per room, based on two people sharing. The menu includes classic bistro dishes alongside quite a few vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. Book up for a Saturday evening and you can enjoy a live solo performer in the restaurant while you dine. 

 

7.  Da Nello

Da Nello always delivers with classic Italian dishes, and there's a good selection of our favourites on the Tennerfest menu. Pasta of course, but there are also a few antipasti, seafood and chargrilled options on the menu, so there's something for everyone, with some 'Dolci' or 'Formaggio' to finish. With a three course only option, the lunch menu is great value at £20. The dinner price is edging close to £30, but it's a good venue for a get together with family or friends and worth the extra if you're in the mood for something a bit more indulgent.

 

8.  La Barbarie

If you're looking for a night out in St Martin, try La Barbarie. This Tennerfest is more of a traditional menu, and with three tempting courses you might want to settle in and make a night of it. There's a selection of handpicked wines to accompany your meal at special prices, and you can upgrade to a staycation for £80 per person, which includes £20 per person restaurant credit - so that’s your 3 course Tennerfest dinner sorted! -  an overnight stay and a full Guernsey breakfast.

 

9.  Lobster & Grill Restaurant

The Lobster & Grill restaurant has a modern, cosy feel and offers a selection of homemade pub grub favourites in a more sophisticated setting. With a bottle of house wine for £19 and a staycation offer running alongside the tennerfest menu, you might be tempted to make a night of it.

 

10.  Le Pommier

If you haven't been to Le Pommier for a while, take advantage of their Tennerfest menu to make your return. The hotel was refurbished to be modern and cosy not so very long ago. The menu comprises a selection of old favourites with a modern twist. Prawn cocktail with wasabi mayo, mussels with tom yum broth and chicken katsu burger to name but a few. At £20 for two courses, it’s the ideal time to try something new. Stay over for £90 (based on two people) with breakfast included to set you up for the day.
