Best All-day Restaurant


Ortolana was the flagship all-day restaurant of the Hip Group when it opened (and it’s since been joined by Rosie, and St Heliers Bistro). We like to think of it as the heart of Britomart: a beautiful indoor/outdoor haven in the middle of the Pavilions, serving excellent fresh food backed by charming service — just perfect for everything from business meetings to après-shopping treats and evening relaxation.

The Hip Group grows a lot of its own produce, and meat, and it’s presented by chef Gavin Doyle (that’s him above, flanked by wait staff Remo Kaines, left, and Roma Tallon) with a delightfully light touch.

A favourite dish: crayfish ravioli with preserved lemon & garden herbs.
