“Corked wine, warm beer, lousy food and a view of the car park…” This is Andy, the amiable ex-pat with a wry sense of humour and kicking casual restaurant now ranked among the best on the island. Its popularity is due in part to Andy's unique approach to hospitality; he makes no bones about the kind of food on offer, so newcomers generally rock up with no real expectations. Of course, the reality is rather different. Dutifully cooking up a storm in the kitchen for well over a decade, Chef Frederic Joly (with more than a little input from Andy) created a diverse menu of simple stone-baked pizzas and seafood dishes - infused with more than a little French inspiration. Little more than a vintage beach hut with curtain-clad walls, it sets the perfect backdrop to an evening of exceptionally un-lousy food and impromptu entertainment from dinosaur rock stars.
Now approaching its 15th year anniversary, Chez Andy (or the Hideaway as it's more formally known) continues to flog the same old horse that got it where it is today – with the exception of a brand new chef, little else has really changed. Copious seafood platters and grilled steaks continue to dominate the menu, although you'll also find a good selection of veal (in garlic or mushroom sauce) and duck-breast, enhanced with an “oriental orange sauce”. You can also enjoy “la mer” with options like Salmon Fillet in Ginger and Lemon Cream Sauce, or St. Jacques Sea Scallops in a Provencale sauce, washed down with a bottle of plonk or trademark “warm beer”!
Opening Hours: Lunch 12am to 2pm; Dinner/ drinks 7pm until late. Closed for lunch on Sunday- Monday
