About ALUCO Restaurant and Bar
Aluco's contemporary poolside dining restaurant. A celebration of the tropics, its produce, culture and cuisine. The perfect location for lunchtime dining with your choice of poolside views or our air conditioned restaurant. Finish your afternoon with a chilled cocktail served by our lagoon pool terrace. In the evening, Aluco is transformed into one of Port Douglas most spectacular venues, the new modern design coupled with our fire lit lagoon makes for a memorable experience. Our Executive Chef, Chad Woolford, and his team have refined the Aluco menu utilizing local and highly sought after ingredients from North Queensland.
Dined in mid June 2018. Atmosphere and setting by that large magnificent pool complex was terrific. We had two courses each and the food was first class. The only issue was with a drinks order I made, asking for a rum & coke in a small glass which arrived in a 400ml tall glass full of coke and ice. When I asked for this to be replaced with the small spirit glass I had ordered, the waitress wobbled the drinks tray in her left hand and a 70% fill bottle of wine fell over splashing my jersey, trousers and part of the table with the wine. She apologised profusely and I accepted that on rare occasions accidents happen. It did not ruin our dinner. The food and location were lovely and would return if in the region again. I didn't ask for any recompense but it might have been appropriate for heror the staff to have offered my rum and coke "on the house" or something, but we ended up paying the full bill. Overall, still a nice place for a dinner meal.
It was a nice touch to receive complimentary very fresh sliced bread as a side. You don’t have that much these days!! Thank you. Our mains took a little while but they were very tasty - the prawn pasta and the barramundi. The barramundi was accompanied by a most delicious noodle type salad. We had the pineapple parfait and mango cheesecake for dessert. The flavours were fantastic (although both were deconstructed!!)
Nice restaurant and decor is so much nicer since the renovations.
Lovely surrounds, the steak was delicious 😃😃
We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Aluco with delicious food and great service.
I Highly recommend Aluco, Food was amazing and service friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was tropical and relaxing and with our fantastic Accor discount we had a 5 star meal at a very affordable price.
