Restaurant gets two-star rating
A ST Helier restaurant has been awarded a two-star hygiene rating, indicating a low level of compliance with Jersey’s food safety laws.
La Cascasta, in New Street, received the rating last month following a surprise inspection by staff from Environmental Health.
Stewart Petrie, director of Environmental Health, said that he expected that the business would be able to bring its rating up soon.
‘It was just generally not as clean as we would have liked. There was nothing specific, it was just not up to standard. It was not dire. If it was it would not have a two-star rating.
‘After we inspect a business and it receives a low rating, there is a lag built into the system so that it will not appear on the website for two weeks, so if it is something small it can be sorted out straight away,’ he said. In this instance, the restaurant’s name has now appeared on the gov.je website, as the 14-day delay has been exceeded.
‘We have around 1,080 different food businesses in Jersey and all but a couple of them are rated above three stars. I am sure that they [La Cascata] will be able to bring their score back up.’
Mr Petrie added that the restaurant was due to face another surprise inspection. The JEP attempted to contact the restaurant for comment, but no one was available.
