“Great service and amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had a wedding reception for 50 people at Bistro Alegria and cannot recommend it enough. The service was excellent, the staff lovely, and the food absolutely amazing. We had alot of leftovers and I had people asking me the next day to share them.

I have been here before but only for desserts. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brisbane!

“Best Breakfast in Brisbane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Hubby and I were looking for a warm cafe on a cold morning where we could enjoy a leisurely weekend breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised to find Alegria and we'll be going back. The staff were friendly and provided excellent service; the menu was interesting and the meals did not disappoint. We were both served very generous portions and they were reasonably priced. And the coffee was excellent. The restaurant itself is clean and fresh. We are looking forward to trying lunch and dinner there too. We think it would be a great venue to visit with a group of friends too.

“good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great dining experience - with live music on Sunday and Tuesday nights.
Service is excellent and a good wine list selection available.
I was impressed by the duck pastilla with cherry jus - rich and decadent!

“How is this place not higher than #42?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Went here with my fiance and the table was the one in the front left corner by the window and potted rosemary bush. Great breeze through the open windows.

Food was amazing. We had the soft shell crab tapas and then seafood paella and lamb backstrap. The paella reminded me of Barcelona just for a moment. Dessert was the thick italian hot chocolate (more like custard) and the lemon tart with ricotta. All delicious.

Great huge selection of foreign and and local Australian wines.

Good work Alegria. Will be back.

“Mediterranean in Brisbane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

I would like to echo all the positive comments from other diners. We were met by the manager who showed us to our table. I explained to him there were various items which I did not like in a dish and had no hesitation in adjusting the menu to suit my taste. Would definitely return and recommend to other diners considering Mediterranean cuisine. It was as good as restaurants we have dined at in Spain etc
