Excellent place enjoyed a delicious cheese and potato pie unfortunately forgotten the name on menu! Salads with it were delish. Lovely rustic place to eat. Busy but well organized.

What a great place for breakfast! a good cup of latte and a hearty plate traditional fry up .People and pets are welcomed here; and your order is called by your first name when delivered to your table. I had the fresh Dartmouth Crab sandwich served with a salad on the side as it was approaching lunch whereas my friend... More

We've been visiting Dartmouth for probably about 3 years now, Alf Resco is a place we return to without trouble every time. Even with a stinking hangover we make the effort to get on that foot ferry and get there for breakfast around 10am. Never had a bad time, all the food is delicious as are the drinks. Staff are...

Busy cafe with wholesome home cooked food. I stayed two nights in bunk room and found bed comfy but would not recommend bunk room for people taller than about 5'9 as beds are short. Not much storage space but not a problem for a weekend stay. Bathroom clean and well equipped. Pics of dartmouth too, very well situated.

Obviously the place to breakfast or lunch in Dartmouth as generally full and often with a queue waiting for a table. This can be a little off putting if you're seated and eating by putting a little pressure on you to finish up and leave so someone else can take your table. I was aware of the waitress saying to...

When we objected to being served lattes instead of the cappuccinos ordered, the same cashier who'd repeated 'two normal cappuccinos' attempted to lie his way out of responsibility, blaming us customers for ordering incorrectly. This is the second time in as many months that we've retired from Alf Resco's slightly disappointed in the obnoxious attitude of the same member of... More

My boyfriend and I come here for breakfast whenever we are in Dartmouth! The menu is varied, portions are very generous and the food is amazing. They are happy for canine companions to join you and even offer them a sausage for breakfast! The only downside is that you more than likely have to wait for a table, however this... More

This small, charming restaurant has so much going for it: central but quiet Dartmouth location; cosy 'cave'-like interior which opens into a roomy 'al fresco' area; and good food. However, the ordering process is so painful and time-consuming it entirely spoiled my experience - hence the 2 stars. Customers have to order ALL drinks and food at the bar. The... More
