Alfresco's is due for a remodel in May of this year or so we were told by one of the managers. The indoor dining room and the menu looked a bit tired and dated on our visit in April. Hopefully, it will be brought up to the hotel's excellent standards very soon.

Near the pool so very handy while you're swimming. Large fish tacos and you get 2 so very filling. Good service and nice atmosphere.

The first time we went to Alfresco the food was ok and the waitress was friendly and efficient. However, the second time the waitress (a different one) pretty much ignored us and was so rude that we simply left the restaurant and had lunch somewhere else. Overall, food is ok but service is poor. We will never go back again.

We stayed at the Vinoy for a week and Al Fresco was our standby for lunch, snacks and one dinner. The restaurant is in a glass walled gazebo near the pool of the Vinoy. The Vinoy has been a yearly trip for my family over the last decade, so we've seen this restaurant over a long period.

We had several lunches by the pool, one in the restaurant and one dinner in the restaurant on this trip. Wait staff were all very good, helpful and accommodating. The food was consistently good and served quickly.

This is a good option for any meal.

Our family ordered drinks and lunch by the pool. Our daughter wanted a cookie and our waitress made sure she got it. The turkey club wraps were great and the blackened fish tacos were even better. What a fun way to spend an afternoon and the service was excellent.
