Recently visited the restaurant for lunch with friends. The staff are excellent and not intrusive. The food is good but salty. I have seen other reviews saying the same. Will visit the restaurant again and no problem recommending.

Used to eat at Alec's a lot but not been for about two years and was really looking forward to the meal, I couldn't have been more disappointed, the food was very average and certainly doesn't warrant the prices charged.
