The service is the best on the island and the meals all match. Had the steak dinner and was a huge steak and done to perfection. Second night we shared one and was plenty and added in some shrimp as a side. While at this place you will feel like you are the only customer as the service and attention... More

Turned up at 8.30 and there was only one couple in there and looked like they were closing. We ordered our meal and it was delicious. My husband said the steak was absolutely perfect and the beef and chilli was delicious - enough for two! Great desert menu too. lovely staff. Totally recommend and will be back next time.

A group of 8, no booking, took us in at the last minute. Fast friendly service. The food was absolutely amazing. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the Chicken Curry - sadly as a shared plate as we weren't very hungry - but could have eaten one each. It was the best ever. The steaks were well portioned and cooked... More

Nice place with good service. Unfortunately it was very hot in there and we had to ask for the fan on. My food was great but my sister didn't really enjoy hers unfortunately.

Alberto's is just a stones throw from the Edgewater Resort so we walked there several times during out stay. We love steak... and this was one of the best steak dinners we have had. Really good salad bar included and on our second trip, did not fill up with salad (as good as it was) because the portions were good... More

Alberto's was a great meal to end off an amazing week at the Cook Islands. We figured we would enjoy and have one last hurrah before our flight, and Alberto's did not disappoint. Fortunately, we were early enough to get a table. Highly recommend calling in a reservation so as to not be disappointed, as they were pretty packed by... More

As a steak lover I was super excited to be having a good steak meal - understatement! It was awesome 👍🏽👍🏽 The serving was just right for me 😋 but my partner reckons a bit more steak would've sealed the deal for him lol! Would eat there again for shore ✔️✔️
