Tucked away at the end of the alley in downtown Saint John is a wonderful piece of Spain. We were looking forward to visiting Alley Gria based on past reviews. The warm ambiance, friendly service and exceptional food exceeded all of our expectations.

The menu at first appears complex and may leave you wondering where to begin, but where ever you start you will be delighted. We enjoyed a must have seafood paella, shrimp in spanish butter, beef skewers and numerous other delectables that brought pure joy to our senses.

If you are looking for an unique experience and a great night out, don't miss Alley Gria.

This restaurant always manages to exceed expectations every time we visit. The variety of tapas are great. You must try the paella. We love the clams-these are little pieces of tasty heaven! You won't be disappointed by anything on the menu!

Not many locals are fully aware of this little gem but it's one of the best places to eat in the city. Warm and cozy interior that has a 'cellar' feel to it. Great tapas to share, as well as wine selection. Decor is fantastic and the harbour views are invaluable.

Friday August 10th 2012 a very reasonable priced bottle wine list, enjoyed the Salmon Ceviche, the Spanish Tortillas were okay, but loved the marinated lamb chops $30 ... Recommend Alley Gria's marinated lamb when dining in Saint John.

Food was good. Service was good. Little hard to find. Can handle large groups but you all can't sit together. Worked out fine though as we just moved around and socialized.
