Ate most lunch's and dinners here, good value and tasty food with plenty of local cuisine to chose from. Staff friendly and helpful like everywhere else in the resort.

This is a great restaurant but not a good choice on hot nights! The view is amazing though - saw a lightning storm one evening and a beautiful sunset the next!

We were very happy with the food and enjoyed the excellent ambience. Staff were fine, but not very engaging with food recommendations. Overall, we love the place.

I was planning my best friend's proposal with the help of the restaurant manager, Mr. Johnson. I must say that he is definitely one of the most pro-active persons i have met in the service industry. He listened well to what we had in mind and was quick to provide helpful suggestions to facilitate our request.

It was quite a last minute notice and within a short period of time, he gathered his staff and decorated a quiet place by the side for the surprise proposal at night. His staff were all well-trained and was serving us well. Unfortunately, we only had drinks and was not able to try their food as the proposal was late at night, but honestly with this kinda professionalism and love put into the service, I can't see how the food can go wrong!

Had a great great experience and will definitely look to return! Awesome job to Mr. Johnson and team, thank you for making it such a perfect night!

Strategically located by the side of a beautifully landscaped sea-view pool, Al Fresco offers extensive selection of pasta and seafood dishes Mediterranean style. You can also order famous wood-fired pizzas. I would like to personally congratulate them for being a smoke free zone ! Yippieee !
