We hadn't been for eight years despite passing it loads of times when the car park was always full. It is still really good actually better than that. Ambience was great and the service excellent and food terrific.

As a dining experience it was enjoyable, there are definitely better places to eat for foodies out there but as a night out you can't really go wrong, not had a bad experience yet. Nice food, friendly staff efficient service.

A family get together in Farò resulted in dinner at this fabulous restaurant. The ambience was wonderful, conducive to a great meal. The staff was very attentive, pleasant and created a festive atmosphere, befitting our mood. A pleasant extra was the free port given at the end.

This restaurant is and always will be one of my favorite restaurants. I have been several times and wish to go back again. The food is excellent- outstanding. The staff are friendly, helpful, and engage with the kids, and you will notice the lovely atmosphere this helps to create.

The food was good, though the fish was a little overcooked for our taste. The Monk Fish with rice was a very large portion for one and the fish and rice were definitely over cooked; the Turbot was also overcooked though not as much as the Monk Fish and tghe rice was definitely overcooked. The wine suggested by the staff... More

The service is efficient and friendly and the overall experience is attractive. Alambique is situated at one of the roundabouts on the road from Vale do... More
