Extremely long waiting time. 1h and still not even gotten the starter. Drinks were not asked to be refilled and they forgot to give the bread. I came here 3 years ago and was very satisfied. Now I'm hungry and irritated why on a empty Wednesday I have to wait more than 1h to get the starter. Starter was OK.... More

Hi Been there today. Lazy staff...you should always shake staff to get attention. Dirty...floor is really dirty... Actually we took coffee and desert. Waitress brought coffee in 10 minutes and desert after 30 minutes and then for other friends after 10 more minutes. Sad...really sad!

This meal would rate up with one of the best in our travels in the last 3 weeks. The service was friendly the advice well received and the food well presented and flavor combinations worked well. We have learnt to appreciate communication difficulties coming from Australia having limited Multilingual ability but here the matching of food and wine worked well... More

We just sat outside when we visited this place, we had some drinks and also som calamaris to eat. But when we went inside to use the toilets I saw how nice and modern and fresh it looked. Good service. Nice place to sit outside too, for a couple of hours.

It used to be a great place with good food and best service. But now it has lost its value :( didn't get to the foot because the welcome was really bad and didn't feel like wanted there.. The hostess was rude and ignored client.. Well... Sad, because it used to be a really good place, but not any more... More

Not quite sure why this place seems to be empty most times. Great selection of tapas, good wine, wonderful service. This place needs a lot more praise!

Last time I have been eating at Alter Ego was spring 2015.. I have been used to visit that restaurant, but it was a little dissapointment. Food did not impress me and my friends, especially Paella. But i can not complain about drinks and service. Absolutly love designe and location. Hope it was just bad day on the kitchen.

Went here with some friends on a tuesday night. We had dinner and drinks. Try the Moscow mule, best drink ever. The food and service was good and the paintings on every wall and the interior was really cool. Would go here again, expecially for the drinks.

Nothing to complain about. Not a very large selection, but to the point. Perhaps wine list could be longer. Food was good, atmosphere relaxing, staff helpful. Nice place.
