My husband and I are foodies and we travel a lot. Our plans always revolve around a good meal. The Allegra is our favourite for good quality tasty food. Thomas the owner and chef is a brilliant chef and Cranbrook is lucky to have this wonderful place to eat.

The Allegra is one of our top 5 restaurants. Every time that we have had a meal there, it has always been an experience. The food is prepared with absolute care by the chef/owner that is performing in the kitchen on his own. I love to see the menu changing from time to time, but if a favorite meal has... More

This is hands down our favourite restaurant in town...maybe even in the world! We go here for dinner often and the kids (now teens) are disappointed to miss out if they are busy and cannot join us. We have never ordered anything off the menu that isn't absolutely fabulous! Our personal favourites are the seafood dishes (that's just our thing!),... More

The food here is always top quality. Fresh flavors and wide variety, different than anywhere else in Cranbrook. Their 'dauphine' potatoes are to die for. The spinach and feta bread is also amazing! The restaurant is a bit small and doesn't offer much privacy away from other guests. I would never bring my kids for fear they would disrupt other... More

It has been awhile since we visited this gem of a restaurant. The food was of superior quality and further complemented by very friendly and efficient service. Smiles and great recommendations from the servers to scrumptious food paired with a wonderful Malbec, wonderful.

Crab cakes as appetizer were excellent, smoked salmon & shrimp pasta is good, the baked tiger prawns in tomato sauce is overwhelmingly intense with the tomato flavour, the limoncello cheesecake was good, but with no real limoncello flavour. Cranbrook doesn't have any really outstanding restaurants, so Allegra is a good choice for a nice meal out. Service is excellent, and... More

If this restaurant was in a major city it would land in the average zone. However, in a town infamous for its fast food strip it is about the best you will find. They do work pretty hard to find quality ingredients close to home and the chef cares about taste and presentation.

This little restaurant is located at Cranbrook's busiest intersection and most people wouldn't know it's there. The chef runs a one man show and his food is gourmet good an priced reasonable

I must say we had originally planned our dinner at another restaurant and ended up going to Allegra instead, Wow!!! were we happy with our change of plans. We have eaten there in the past and it was one of our treasured places, and last night the staff out did them selves. I had the Moroccan lamb and my wife... More

No idea how this place gets 5 stars. Lobster bisque was like I was drinking sea water with red food colouring in it & my food is what I imagine licking a salt block must taste like. Caesar salad was generic to bland. While our server had zero personality, it at least matched the ambiance of this place. And completely... More
