A hidden gem

This tiny restaurant only has about 10 tables and is located in a strip mall next to Quinzos but don't let that keep you away. The Swiss-born chef makes magic in his kitchen.

After all the 5 star reviews, we were certainly expecting more. Perhaps the menu, which is impressive, is a little too ambitious. Service was friendly but a bit slow and obtrusive...lots of reaching across in front of diners (we were a party of four) and loud interrupting of table conversation. Also effusive recommendations that fell short. The special morel salad... More

After reading what other reviewers had to say, and noting Allegra's #1 ranking in Cranbrook, we went there for dinner just as they opened at 5pm on a Friday.

I started with the Morel Mushroom soup and Caesar Salad, and the entrée of rack of lamb. All was well seasoned, fresh and very flavourful. The server was very attentive and pleasant. I will return to this restaurant, next time I am in town.

After a few dissapointing meals while staying in Cranbrook, I googled for the best and Allegra Mediterranean restaurant came up - hands down the best. Found the place and we went in. Not that large and if eating later (we were there at 5:45 pm), reservations are definately required. Being 'food snobs' from Vancouver we did not expect the quality,... More

The Food was amazing, and the service is excellent. Maybe the interior design is average but that doesn't make a huge difference as long as the food is good. The price is little bit in the higher side.

it is a small place, cozy, with friendly owner/operators who make you feel comfortable. Food is delicious, with not too many choices which is makes for some delicious varieties.

The food here is made with lots of love and lots of experience... the owner/chef is very talented and knows how to cook a meal! It is pricey, but well worth it!
