Had a lovely lunch here while we were on holiday, the food was really good and it was lovely and cool in there on a very hot day. The staff were very friendly as well as being very efficient.

Great place for breakfast. Some locals and some holiday makers makes for a relaxed atmosphere. Usual selection of breakfast items all cooked superbly and tasty. Perfect start to the day.

Back again and pleased to see the Dartmouth institution that is Alf's is still going strong. Great friendly service coupled with well cooked food is definitely a recipe for success and something you must try if you're in this neck if the woods.

It was our first time at Cafe Alf Resco. We had heard of its popularity and decided to give it a go....and were not disappointed. The seating arrangements are a combination of outdoor and under cover. Staff supplied the children with books and pens to keep them occupied. There were also quite a few people there with dogs (I believe... More

I came back here after an interval of about 3 years and was delighted to find it unchanged, with the remembered high quality breakfasts cooked to order and the delightfully informal but effective customer service. I went at lunchtime with a cousin and we both treated ourselves to a second breakfast, my cousin pushing the decadence boat out by having... More

Have been here several times, and this one was quieter than normal, which was a nice surprise as Alf Resco's gets very busy and buzzy - which can be part of the charm, but it was nice to have that little bit more space. Food was great, as ever and toast arrived with the cooked breakfast (rather than some time... More

With attentive staff and good prices... More

A real treat for something relaxing and home produced. Fresh bread for the sandwiches was brilliant and the beef filling was rare and perfect. Just what was needed. My wife had the home made fish pate served on a wooden platter with massive salad, Cous cous was v tasty. Definite place to go but beware they close at 2.00 pm

Excellent cafe with a great atmosphere in a town well worth a visit. Only had coffee, but the food that was being served look good, and the menu was interesting. Not only happy to allow our dog in, but also treated her to a sausage. I would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.
