Guide honours island restaurants

A coveted star in the new Michelin Guide to top restaurants has been retained by two Jersey restaurants, but Guernsey has lost a spot in the book.

The Ocean Restaurant in St Brelade, has retained a Michelin star for a fourth year and Bohemia in St Helier, has kept it's accolade for a seventh year.

Christophe's in St Peter Port, closed in the summer so its one-star entry in the guide has been removed.

Restaurants across the world have been evaluated by the guide since 1900.

Local produce

Stars - one, two, or three - have been awarded to 140 restaurants in the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2010.

Restaurants are never informed when their assessment will be, with inspectors avoiding revealing their line of work.

Both Patrick Burke, owner of the Ocean Restaurant at the Atlantic Hotel, and Lawrence Huggler, owner of Bohemia, praised their chefs, Mark Jordan and Shaun Rankin, for using local produce.

Christophe's, at the Fermain Valley Hotel, closed in September with the restaurant's Chef Christophe Vincent moving to another restaurant in the hotel.
