Four of us called in without a booking as we were staying nearby at The Edgewater Resort & dined here for dinner. Pricing, food & service were all really good.

Four of us went to Alberto's to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversaries. The setting really nice and if you arrive before its dark, the view is great. I was really surprised at the quality of the food and the wine choices. I would recommend this a very good place to go for an evening meal

We ate here while staying at a nearby resort. My partner loved his steak... a great big delicious rib eye cooked perfectly. I had the chargrilled swordfish which was also very good. I loved the salad bar - so good to have a fresh salad choice. This is a wonderful, friendly place and well worth visiting!

Really enjoyed our romantic evening at Alberto's. Best rib-eye steak, cooked to perfection. Very large meals, good value. Also, fantastic dessert. Friendly and efficient service.

The bus driver told us to come here (he was related to the owner but still worth it). Lovely staff and love the open feel to the place. looking forward to going back when i visit again :).

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Albertos. The staff were extremely pleasant and attentive. Meals were very generously sized with a simple and very tasty salad bar which came with each of our meals. Nice to see a kids menu with plenty of options.

It is at the expensive end of the price range but their food was excellent as were their staff. When you have been eating takeaway or resort food for a while it was nice to eat in a pleasant restaurant and have excellent quality food. Kids food was good as were the curries, beef and the swordfish. Enjoyable night out

Alberto's was recommended by a local as great steaks and they were right. New Zealand export quality rib-eye absolutely cooked to perfection. Others in our group of four had swordfish which was little overcooked. Our waiter was very good with information and service. I thought the price was reasonable for what we got.

buffet salad bar was a bit random. very expensive for what it was. The locals that work there are fantastic and friendly, the owner/head of house was a bit grumpy in comparison.

We spent several nights at Alberto's Restaurant and we were never disappointed. The Catch of the Day (Swordfish) is absolutely delicious and plenty of it. Also the Seafood Curry is also a fantastic meal. I would recommend both these dishes and also the Steak Meals. The quality and quantity is excellent. Would highly recommend. The Salad Bar has a great... More
