Food was amazing! Service was on point. this was our first time going to Alec's and it was to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. The only thing that was bad was where we were sat. everyone kept knocking into our table and it was very loud because on the kitchen. If we were put on a table that wasn't directly outside the kitchen this would have made out experience so much better. Other than that the food was out of this world.

The food was of excellent quality and tasted delicious. The service was very good and there was no feeling of being hurried. The tables are spaced out which is rare in many restaurants. It would be helpful though if the menus were in slightly bigger print as they are difficult to read in the dim lighting, even with my glasses. would highly recommend.

We have been regular diners since the restaurant opened. I'm aware there has been a change of ownership. I wonder if the chef has also changed as the food wasn't anywhere near the standard we have come to expect. Disappointing.

The restaurant is very good, the service is excellent. With regards to atmosphere this I feel it lacks. I would suggest the menu is good but this does not seem to change very much. With regards to value for money I feel the wine is over priced.

We have used this restaurant for several years now and always felt satisfied. Just sometimes the service can be a little slow, but in fairness that is a "picky" comment in the absence of anything else to say about improvements. Most importantly, we will be returning and remaining (hopefully) regular clients.

Food was excellent as was the service and decor, the only minor thing I had an issue with was quite a lot of noise coming from the kitchen. I know some restaurants (and diners) like that, but don't think it suits the ambience of Alec's. I repeat, food, service and decor was excellent.

Great service, more information for those who suffer from allergies or intolerances would be nice. Although server (waiter ID 115) was very helpful in this matter.
