“Excellent”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We visited Alo Alo for a family celebration in October 2012 & were very impressed. The restaurant itself was welcoming & impressive. There is a choice of dining inside or out & the food itself was extremely good quality. Choice was excellent & the service was second to none. A worthwhile place to visit - you will not be disappointed!!

“Decent place for lunch - food is VERY good”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Stopped by for lunch with a workmate, the food was very good: potato and bacon cakes, fried haloumi cheese with a sweet chili sauce and 3 types of homemade (still warm) breads - and the accompanying greens and salads were decent. I found the setting a bit grimy however, the cloth placemats and chair cushions had seemingly never been cleaned... the pepper shaker was empty and there was no plug in the bottom, little things, admittedly. Bottom line: go for the food, which is wonderful, and that's what counts in a restaurant, right?!

“Top Class”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

How many restaurants that are rated in the top 5 have the owner actually cooking in the kitchen every day ?? The results give Alo Alo a dedicated following of diners . The menu covers every taste and always has interesting specials of the day. High emphasis on presentation.

“Superb Food, well presented”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Quietly tucked away behind the shopping centre this is a lovely place for lunch. Loved the different kinds of breads they offer you instead of rolls.

The food on the main menu was a bit pricey but the special was good value for money. They had some vegetarian options too which was good.

All food was nicely presented.

“doesn't really like it!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The restaurant is okay, nothing really special, the food is okay, the portion is just too big, the presentation of the food is just too much, too many elements in it, not really neat and sophisticated, and the food lost it taste because too many ingredients involved!!
