Really disappointed with the food on Saturday 15th June. The fillet steak I had was cooked exactly as I requested but the cut of meat was terrible for a fillet. Very stringy and quite a bit of fat/grizzle on it. Not much taste either. We ordered the creamy spinach but was surprised to see this without any cream at all. In fact it was just plain, boiled, tasteless spinach - very disappointing as last time we were at Alec's the creamy spinach (which was creamy) was delicious so we were looking forward to having this again. My partner's main meal - monkfish was disappointing. A few bits of prawn and a few pieces of monkfish with a sauce - not a lot for a pricey dish! However, the service was impeccable with attentive staff. My rose prosecco was very nice as well. This was a birthday meal for my partner and we left quite disappointed overall.

We’ve been going to this restaurant for years and been really pleased with everything but I don’t Think we’ll be rushing back. As we noticed quite a lot of changes I would say it’s not as good as it used to be

Excellent experience, the staff are professional, friendly and very attentive. One of my several visits to Alec's Restaurant and one of the best experiences in eating out. It has my highest rating for formal restaurants.
