We have made 5 trips in the last 10 years and have never been disappointed with a meal. We always start our first meal with them and finish our last evening at Alberto's.The owners and staff friends are now our friends.

Ate here one night of our trip, fantastic steaks, friendly staff, good prices. Highly recommend. Located close to the Edgewater resort, on the town side. Roadside location, run by a kiwi couple from Bluff NZ. Great service with very little wait time.

This was the most expensive place we went to and also provided the worst food. Our steaks were not good by any standard. Second rate cuts that needed a sledge hammer to tenderise. The decor is dreary and depressing and simply not worth it.

I really enjoyed the simplicity of Alberto's. The steak & fish were cooked to perfection and I loved the help yourself salad bar plus yummy garlic bread. Impeccably clean and fresh decor with great service and pricing. Will definitely be back ! Cheers.

This place is not very fashion. It has a long heritage of steak house and the cuisine isn't very modern but.... it is honestly good. The meat is good quality and perfectly cooked each time we have dinner there (we live in Rarotonga). The service...More

It opens at 6pm. Put your name on the blackboard by car park. They may be away on holiday, pop down to Kikau Hut and ask the owner there. They will know
