A very warm welcome to the Bella Luce Website. It is incredible to think that we are half way through the Summer. The weather certainly seems to be picking up; In fact, the wonderful Guernsey weather could last well into the late October. The Olympic torch made its way to our little island last weekend, the island capital St Peter Port was indeed a bustling and busy harbour.
We really are blessed with an abundance of natural ingredients from sea and land, its not surprising that the island has so many high quality restaurants. You can choose from hearty pub fayre, Bistro dining, contemporary cuisine and fine dining.
Gary Pickles our Executive Head Chef will share some wonderful recipes with you from our Summer menu such as butter poached Guernsey lobster tail served with a tempura claw, lobster lasagne, butternut squash and pancetta. Also head to toe Gloucester black spot pork with spring greens, apple and sage jus. You can also check out more of Gary’s dishes on his separate blog ‘Chef Gary.’
We have also added to our Sunday offering with a family feast that allows families and friends to enjoy a Sunday roast without all the hassle accompanied by our new Bloody Mary Cocktail Menu. Then spend your Sunday afternoon in the beautiful settings of Candie Gardens which hold a series musical and dance performances.
St Peter Port comes alive this month with upcoming events such as Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall visit the island marking the celebration of the Jubilee, the biennal festival of music from the world’s leading classical performers. Also Le Yacht Club de Granville sailing race brings together around 100 boats and 700 yachtsmen across the Gulf of St. Malo.
On a final note we are delighted to have been awarded the Gold award from Visit Britian and the Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor. We have also teamed up with the exclusive New York based Tablet Hotels making us the only hotel in the Channel Islands to have achieved this prestigious partnership. Our kitchen has also picked up the Channel Islands Senior Chef of the Year Award.
