Food was OK. However, I didn't like standing at the bar waiting for the Manager to acknowledge my very existence. Just a nod and "I'll be with you in a moment" would have been nice.

We have made 5 trips in the last 10 years and have never been disappointed with a meal. We always start our first meal with them and finish our last evening at Alberto's.The owners and staff friends are now our friends.

Ate here one night of our trip, fantastic steaks, friendly staff, good prices. Highly recommend. Located close to the Edgewater resort, on the town side. Roadside location, run by a kiwi couple from Bluff NZ. Great service with very little wait time.

This was the most expensive place we went to and also provided the worst food. Our steaks were not good by any standard. Second rate cuts that needed a sledge hammer to tenderise. The decor is dreary and depressing and simply not worth it.

I really enjoyed the simplicity of Alberto's. The steak & fish were cooked to perfection and I loved the help yourself salad bar plus yummy garlic bread. Impeccably clean and fresh decor with great service and pricing. Will definitely be back ! Cheers.

Wandered out of the resort to see what was available nearby and found Alberto's, which had all the right signals. The staff were welcoming and prompt with drinks and explanations on the menu. One point they failed to mention was the size of the steaks,...More
