We went to Alberto's twice during our stay in the cook islands. My husband loves his steak and this was the best steak he has had in ages. I had a pasta dish and a pork dish both were delicious. Very big helpings and you will not leave hungry. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly. A great... More

A group of 20 of us ate there for a birthday dinner and we felt like an inconvenience to the owners the whole time. Granted we didn't make a booking but considering we spent over a $1000 I would have at least cracked a smile to the customers. Food was ok and some of he steaks were overdone but that... More

THE BEST steak I have ever had! I haven't eaten steak in over 2 years, Alberto's Rib eye special on the back page is all you need to order! Great service, great prices & great taste! We will be back and we have told everyone who will listen about this great place since we've been back in NZ (2 weeks!)

We had the steak special and it was fantastic. The steak was cooked to perfection and help yourself to the salad bar which was beautiful. The service was fantastic and this was the best meal we had during our stay.

Knowing the owners, Kerry & Kathy Robinson for the last 12 years has been a pleasure. Their friendship & excellent quality of food & service is unsurpassed ... especially Kathy's fresh salad bar and Kerry's special NZ steak dinner - "to die for". Have just returned from another six week stay - visited Alberto's eight times during Oct & Nov/16... More

His place looks great from the outside, and is like eating in your own front room once inside. The steaks are great so well worth visiting, however depending where on the island you are staying, you may need transport to get there

This is not a fancy restaurant. So why go there? The food is simply good! From their self-service salad bar with recommended potato salad and pawpaw salad to mains like steak, they serve you proper, good food. Vegetarian options are few, so order a large salad instead, you won't regret. Attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere, good food. Simply great.
