We have visited Rea's Bistro on a number of occasions and have found Rea and all of his staff to be friendly and helpful. Rea hosts a number of food and music events throughout the year and is a great asset to the Island of Alderney. The food is consistently good, with an excellent choice of meat, fish and veggie options. The menu is sensibly priced and the bar/restaurant is clean and inviting. There are great views across Braye Bay from both the bar and the outside terrace. If you are visiting Alderney we suggest that you call into Rea's Bistro and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and good food.

Had a Rib-Eye Steak with Peppercorn Sauce, I asked for medium rare and it came out well over medium-rare. The food was still great and the flavours were nice so I didn't complain. Some people were doing a BBQ right next to where we sat which was rather irritating...but then again, we could have moved. All in all good food and nice to sit out side in the Sun.

After waiting an hour and 15 minutes for a main course we decided to confront the chef about the wait. Chef was extremely rude and arrogant and offered no apology. We also saw at least 12 people walking out due to the wait.

Will never be coming back here. Such a shame as most restaurants on the island are brilliant.

After a day at sea a quick 'posh' burger and chips were perfect but nearly an hour to wait for food when the restaurant was only 1/s full was a bit much.
