When looking for dinner one night we had no expectations when arriving here.. it was within walking distance from our resort. We were warmly welcomed and seated. Our food was delish! Separate salad bar to the side of the room which was great! A lovely experience!!

Our travelling party was 16 people strong and the staff at Albertos handled it with ease. Great menu featuring great steak and seafood options as the standouts.

Came here for a nice dinner and we were impressed. The staff were friendly and chatty. The setting was cool with mini flags all along the ceiling. The food came out quickly and was worth the price and was great for the tummy

We were staying at Sunset Resort right next door to this restaurant so it was a natural place to try and we were not dissappointed. The owner was extremely friendly and talkative. Food was great and I liked the salad bar with a good choice of salads. Value for moneyand we would go again

Wonderful service with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Food was great value for money and the steak was the best I've had in years. The salad bar was a nice touch and there was plenty of options in both menu and in the salad bar. The owner was lovely and went around each table to personally check that everyone... More

Staff ok, manager helpful, salads very nice. Steaks were below average, I had swordfish which was lovely. Orders got bit mixed up, and explanation of menu options was lacking due to an inexperienced waitress. Disappointing overall.
