There’s something about the taste of food eaten on holiday that really stays with you. Remember the vivid experience of eating an ice-cream on holiday when you were a child? Or your first taste of pizza? Start your own family’s food memories off on the right foot with a selection of restaurants that are great at catering for younger eaters, as recommended by local islanders.

MARSHMALLOW MOUNTAINS

The Hungry Man kiosk at Rozel doesn’t just serve great bacon rolls, you can indulge in an enormous ‘marshmallow mountain’ hot chocolate, topped with squirty cream, white chocolate buttons, sprinkles and - of course - marshmallows. Every kids’ dream.

PING PONG & BURGERS

Book a game or two of ping pong at JB’s Ping Pong Bar in St. Helier, and take a break in between tournaments for their homemade Jersey beefburgers, served in a brioche bun or a side of mac &  cheese. For the grownups, there’s a great selection of craft ales.

WORK UP AN APPETITE

Check the tide times - at low water Plemont beach is a natural playground of rock pools and caves waiting to be explored. The steps are easier when you know there’s a slap up breakfast waiting for you at Plemont Café at the top.

EMBRACE YOUR CHILD'S INNER PIRATE

A cold beer at the end of the day at The Portelet Inn and a pirate-themed play area for the children mean that everyone’s happy. Add some sea air, a straightforward menu of crowd-pleasers and Ice-Cream Factory desserts for the kids - what could be better?

THAI BEACHSIDE FEASTS

The tiny beach at Bonne Nuit isn’t just a great spot to splash in the shallows, walk along the pier and watch the fishing boats - you can also pick up a Thai feast at Bonne Nuit Café, with fish caught in the bay. Order a takeaway and stretch out on the sand for an easy beach picnic while the kids play.

ENJOY A WOODLAND PLAY AREA

Finish a day on the beach at Grève de Lecq bay at Le Moulin de Lecq pub. Have dinner outside this historic mill and the kids can let off some steam, there’s an adventure playground right next to the alfresco area.

SURF & TURF

Spend an afternoon catching waves on St. Ouen’s beach and then head straight to El Tico for a post-surf supper. With a kids menu of Jersey beefburgers, ribs or moules and an excellent menu of casual dishes, this laidback eatery is the sort of place you can go to straight from the beach. In the summer, sit outside at the wooden tables for a really relaxed beachside vibe.

TAKE ME THERE

PIZZA BY THE BEACH

With arguably one of the best views of any Pizza Express in the country, Pizza Express St. Brelade looks out right over the golden sands of this beautiful bay. Just steps away from the sand, it’s a superb destination for families and in summer, the roof rolls back for even more fresh sea air with your pizzas.
