Been to the Alfrescos on 3 different occasions - lunch and 2 breakfasts.
- First lunch experience was good. Price was reasonable. Food was average to good. Drinks were so so. The size of serving was decent.
- Second experience was equally good. We waited for a while but the breakfasts were good.
- Third visit to the Alfrescos would also be our final one. There was no service whatsoever, we waited for over 45 minutes for 2 cups of coffee and a sandwich. The cafe was not busy on that day. Many people who came 20-30 minutes after us were served before us. Furthermore, the sandwich was unbelievably small and of poor quality. Worst of all was the hot coffee - it must be one of the very worst coffees I have ever tasted in my entire coffee drinking life. My husband who normally engulfs his coffee in a few minutes did not and could not get through a third of the cup. We both left the coffees untouched. It was simply and very frankly undrinkable...trust me - it WAS that bad.
Some of our friends also commented on the poor service they experienced at the Alfrescos. They walked away before even received their meals.
Despite the first 2 pleasant experiences, we will not be returning given the rather unimaginable inconsistency.
