Being a local, I normally avoid seafront restaurants like the plague. I find them generally overpriced and substandard, praying on the tourists, but this place is lovely. I took my parents for an evening meal and the quality of the food was exceptional. The hot smoked salmon starter and the medallions of beef were both fantastic. It was a little... More

A nice restaurant right on the seafront with friendly and efficient staff. We had a bottle of house red wine which was good, Calzone - a folded pizza which was massive (but smaller once pierced and steam allowed to escape) and tasty, and Papardelle Filetto - pasta with a good helping of very tasty steak strips. A great lunch -... More

We got married in November last year and held our reception at Alfresco. Alex and her team were highly organised and professional from the start. They accommodated all of our wishes and set up the venue exactly how we wanted. The food was outstanding and we were impressed with the choice of options we were given. Throughout the night the...

I had wanted to dine here for years but never got round to it until yesterday evening. The restaurant is simply beautiful and is nicely laid out, giving you space and privacy between yourself and fellow diners. Our only slight niggle, would be the simple menu - in that we felt there was not enough choice. I really wanted a... More

We held our wedding reception at Alfresco back in August. I can throughly recommend it as both a wedding venue and a restaurant. Alexandra and her staff catered for our every need and made the process of organising our wedding breakfast and evening reception so easy! We chose to have the buffet. The variety and quality of the food was... More

Visited with my team of about 20 people a couple of weeks ago. Service very swift and efficient, food well prepared and good potions. Only issue was pudding which was a tasteless rhubarb and ginger concoction. Only a minor issue. Recommended.

Very possibly the worst wrap I have ever eaten. Lacking flavour and no sign of one of the ingredients promised on the menu. The tomato sauce mentioned totally overtook the other ingredients and seemed more like a spoonful of cold passata. My partner did not enjoy his baguette and also reported one of the ingredients missing. Maybe the restaurant upstairs... More
