The night before it was shutting for a break. Excellent seafood chowder and a fantastic three course deal. One of the very few places that we've ever eaten at where the chef actually knows how to cook a steak the way it's requested. We would have returned had it been open. Great attentive service.

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.
