Magical lunch at Alecs with my lovely mum and a friend. We had skate as our main meal, beautifully cooked, with butter and capers. Staff warm and professional, a great experience.

Food first rate ~ couple of scallops underdone in wifes dish otherwise would have been 5 stars for food & drink ~ please tell staff not to remove bread unless they ask first? Don't know his name but the young man who served us did you proud for his attention & welcoming manner.

For the second time in 2 visits we were seated at the same table (in my opinion the worst possible table in the restaurant) by the fire escape door at the back of the restaurant. It wasn't fitting for my wife's birthday experience if I am being honest. We would have asked to be moved but really didn't want to make a fuss. We could not fault the service or the food, just a shame we had that table.

We were located within the very rear of the restaurant which was separated from the main restaurant and certainly devoid of any atmosphere. We made this reservation back in November so we were surprised as to where we were seated and very disappointed. The cuisine on this occasion was not to the standard as previously enjoyed.

From the start great service and friendly staff, you dont feel rushed tables are not cramped and service is tentative but not over powering, really was a very pleasant lunch and as for the quality of the food superb.

Went for lunch - we ordered from the set menu. Choice was excellent was we were not rushed at all which was lovely, would recommend if you want something a bit more special than a pub lunch.

We actually found the service to be slow. A number of times we asked for the wine to be poured. Then my wife’s birthday cake arrived which was nice. We were asked if we wanted cream, we said yes, but the cream arrived with ice cream after we had eaten the cake. They took it back and said they hd taken the ice cream which we didn’t order or eat off the bill.

Service was fabulous as always but had set lunch meal and found the sirloin steak to be disappointing which is a first for this venue. Maybe an off day but would not order it again...

Delighted with my experience at Alec's restaurant. The food was delicious and we were very well looked after by our waiter Ross, and will most certainly be looking to come and dine with the restaurant again in the near future!

We have been a few times it was the best yet we used to moan that your staff appeared to be hurrying us and too attentive but yesterday it was just right.
