We had (twice) a great dinner at this restaurant and compliment to the chefs who prepared our food and it was excellent. Being a chef myself i couldn't help but ask who was cooking and turns out to be a pinoy. Food was so good and well presented not to mentioned great waiting staff.

The food was nothing to rave about and the service was terrible since our food arrived an hour after we ordered. The kids had pizza and sandwiches arrived cold and it was still eaten since they were so hungry. The waitresses did not come by to check on us for if they did, they would have noticed that not all...

We dined there last night, our order was taken and the food arrived cold and took over an hour to arrive. I believe that their kitchen was on the other side of the island which would explain why our food arrived as a piece meal and why it was cold. Service was awful, we only had female servers (couldn't say... More

Right at the beach on Station 1, this is the restaurant of Ambassador hotel. Tables are well distanced and I heard there is live music some nights although not on the night I was there. The setting is brilliant. The food is good but needs to be improved, I had a pizza as a starter and it was not good,... More

We really enjoyed the beach setting and lit palm trees more than anything, as well as the friendly service. The menu is really diverse across pastas, pizzas, sandwiches, seafood, various Asian entrees - large selection for anyone. I would however not recommend the Thai curry as the sauce did not taste at all like curry - more like gravy. Other... More

The Al Fresco is really one of the greatest restaurants we have ever been. Besides the delicious sea foods and very nice whine (both for good prices), the ambiance we believe is just perfect! You sit on the beach with cosy lights and music. Really great. For this evening we are planning to go for a Banana Daiquiry in the... More

We love to dine on this restaurant. We love the food and the atmosphere. And don't forget it is located near at the beach front. I suggest this restaurant for the romantic couple wants to spend dinner near at the beach with romantic set up.

The sea food is good , I like the tuna. also the soups. i don't recommend the cheese platter and the dessert. The atmosphere is very romantic .recommended for couples. again as boracay is not the best place for food trips..al fresco is one of the best here.
