One of the best on the beach front.

This restaurant may look like it could do with a lick of paint. However the service is fast and friendly, the food portions are large and tasty and the prices are quite a bit lower and the food better than the more expensive looking and costing places. In the night you can eat by the beach side... read more

The Trudi's Place is a restaurant located on the beach. The prices are cheap and the food is terrible. We order prowns.Very bad taste.I think they cook old prowns or frozen prowns. The staff was ok! Bad experience

Trudi's maynot be the best place on the beach but it is the best for cheap food. We ate like kings and queens for very little. The staff is very nice and more than willing to help when you need something. Great spot for after a dive or a tour.

I was walking Alona Beach early one morning and stopped here for breakfast. They open at 6 AM. I had a great early breakfast at the beach. Nothing fancy. Egg, white rice, bacon, banana and coffee. Very nice!

A very friendly family run establishment with rooms for rent above. Surrounding restaurants have high prices on the beach but Trudi's have kept theirs at a very reasonable level although portion sizes may need to be increased for hearty eaters. The Seafood Curry is excellent. Take time to chat with Mama Trudie if she is working. Fabulous warm hearted owner... More

Compared with other places on the strip, this one is reasonably priced with food just as good as most of the others. Budget minded or not it is a good choice if you want to be on beach.

Went twice to this place and always left satisfied. It's right on Alona beach but apart from the other places there this one is cheap. Tried some seafood and their stuffed squid was my favourite. And 1l beer was just for 85 pisos!

Our first and last meal was at Trudis. Like most cafes on the strip the food was fine but not awesome. Drink delivery was very slow in the evening as the restaurant is quite busy. Best for us was the four piece band and watching the very young boy that was one of the waiters buzz around the place and... More

We spend 6 days of our stay by Alona beach and most of the time we had our meal at Trudi's place. Food was very good also good portions and reasonably priced + cheap beer and sea view:-) Staff was very friendly and attentive. They had live music entertainment couple of nights as well. We miss you Trudi's gang ;-)
