I love this building and setting, great to bring my parents here on a beautiful Summer evening. Food is good and not too expensive, great portions for the specials with no need to add extras. With a quite varied menu this place is good for families with varied tastes and appetites. Staff are BRILLIANT, cheekily engaging; like the fact this... More

I used Alfresco for our social evening for 125 people after a conference at the Hilton and it was the perfect choice. The downstairs space looks out to the sea and the patio is a stone throw away from the beach. Lovely on a sunny day coupled with the BBQ menu which was exquisite! The food was tasty and they...

Took my mum here for lunch today and both of us were really impressed with the food and service. This is my first ever trip advisor review and felt compelled to leave alfrescos one. I recommend the Tuna steak and my mum recommends the cannelloni! Thanks for a great experience! I'm telling all my friends

...... if it's a warm night that is. I was here on the hottest day of the year so far so it was a pleasure to sit outside and watch the fairground in the distance, the full moon and the calm sea. The food was imaginative and good, and my two courses only came to £30 including beer and the... More

Visited for lunch on a sunny Saturday. Lovely location, though right next to a kids playground, so maybe visit later on the day if you're looking for a more peaceful lunch. Member of staff who 'greeted' us at the door wasn't very polite or friendly in the slightest - not a nice introduction (but had a giggle about it) however... More

We love coming to Alfresco - the location on the beach is perfect for our end of academic year staff party. Alex and her team in the restaurant are always so helpful with the organisation of our event (we have been to Alfresco several times); the food is always delicious - even when there are 60+ people in the party....

Stopped in here for sundowners and nibbles. Expensive, and struggled to mix a good Negroni, but the staff were polite, friendly and moved to glacial speed as the night beckoned. The owner/ maitre d was a different class to the rest of the staff. Fast, efficient and focused. Drinks were good, view spectacular, and the food is very good. I've... More

We enjoyed dinner for 5 people yesterday evening at Al fresco which was fabulous. The food was beautiful, the service was efficient and unobtrusive. As always, the location was stunning. My starter was Ham Confit which was delicious. My main was chicken wrapped in prosciutto with Sage Polenta which was stunning, well designed and perfectly cooked. The bill was £30... More
