Very well priced meals. Dont let anyone tell you otherwise! the steak is simply perfection itself, cooked exactly how I liked it, the basic meal was so filling I couldn't manage the side salad or most of my baked potato. Highly recommend the surf 'n turf. Its a busy little restaurant so it would pay to reserve a table.

Again this restaurant was recommended to us and the curried prawns were so scrummy I passed on the main course and had two entrees The owner sent over two liquors which was a kind gesture. Service great would have no hesitation in returning there

On our first night in Rarotonga we went for a walk in search of food, we didn't have scooters yet. We passed a pub and a resort restaurant but kept going and stumbled across Albertos. An oasis in the night. We had a fabulous meal, in a great enviroment, just a stroll from the Edgewater resort. The owner was friendly... More

Other favorite was the char grilled swordfish. Friendly service and reasonably priced $105 including 1x garlic bread, 3x mains, 1x desserts and drinks. One of the best priced restaurants that we...

Four of us had a meal here and we all tried the fish which appeared most appetising. The meal was good but the service a little slow. we did wander if they had noticed us come in as we appeared to be ignored for some time. The price was pretty upmarket for Rarotonga and I feel they shouldn't need to... More

Great restaurant to go to..... We had a 9 day holiday at Rarotanga and tried many different restaurants for lunch and dinner. Alberto's was certainly the best place to relax and have really good food. The place might not look as flash as some other restaurants, but with friendly staff and excellent food,but as a former chef I can say... More
