We say

When you’re faced with the wall-to-wall eateries along the seafront, it can be difficult to choose one over the next. But, if you want something a bit smart, serving cuisine that’s a cut above average, Alfresco is a sure winner. Ingredients plucked from the surrounding sea and countryside come with an innovative twist – such as mussels steamed in cava with spring onions and chorizo, wild sea bass served under a blanket of saffron and vanilla butter sauce, or wild mushroom tagliatelle topped with truffle oil and local cheese.

Alfresco has changed hands ★☆☆☆☆

This restaurant has changed hands. It is no longer a high standard restaurant but a grubby Tapas Bar with poor service. Tables dirty, menus sticky and bits of food remained on the floor whilst the waitress stood around in a dream. The seagulls were in full attack mode outside and the people in the table next to us were splattered although the awning was open. Our drinks of 1 small white wine and a ginger beer took 15 mins. The glasses were dirty - we didn't stay around to eat.
