When we arrived in Alderney on the Saturday we called in the Rea's Bistro and asked to book for that night. We were told this was not possible as it was closed for a private function of 53 people. We accepted this and continued on our way. The next day we tried again but we were told that they didn't serve food that night, but not why. All the adverts say food 7 days a week, but hey.
The next day we tried again and this time we almost got the time we wanted as well as a table. Seven o'clock was our preference, but 14 people had booked a table and eight o'clock would be better for them. We accepted and we were glad we did the ribs and the fish and chips were the best we've ever tasted, so all the rebuffs were forgotten and we had a brilliant evening.

When we walked in to the bar the staff weren't rude but lacked a certain level of service. Prices are ok and the food is pretty good just a shame it took so long to come out. The bar was pretty low on stock and lacked in variety.

A good beer from Guernsay to start the evening off although the serving of food was quite slow. The red lentil and celery soup was excellent, The roast chicken fine and the fish and chips well done. Rea appeared and immediately greeted us from a previous time which was pleasing. All n all good food at a reasonable price. The staff put things right too over the slower service. A good effort.

Some of our flying friends had arrived at short notice. Where to go on a Sunday for lunch??? Thirteen of us in total.
Rae was very welcoming and provided us with an extremely good lunch which was praised by all. No doubt many will be returning to our island to sample the local produce again.
Well done, Rae and staff!
Great food in a great setting.
