Waitress was fantastic and attended to our needs perfectly. Was a great meal and would go back for sure
we have been here before had a nice meal, turned up there was only a Tapas menu.. not explained to us when we sat down as we had come there for a full meal. waiter shrugged at us like we were strange to question it. i said someone should explain this when you book. shrugged it off and walked away.. like we were idiots! other waiter explained that chef was "transitioning" into his job whatever that means. if i wanted tapas there are many options in port douglas by the water without going out of of our way to ALuco.
For such a high calibre hotel, I was very disappointed in the food. The meal choice was poor and the lamb primarily fat. Breakfast although stating included was not. You could only choose 1 hot dish and I still had to pay for coffee. If COVID is the excuse, then that's rubbish as restaurants in the Port area itself were outstanding. Service was exceptional but I would not go back for the food.
Staff were fantastic! Great food, we ended up ordering too much but that’s my problem...
So impressed. The service was amazing and the food was just delightful. Dinner was so moreish & breakfast didn’t disappoint.
Really good food, well presented.
Our waitress was very helpful, polite and made our visit memorable.
Waitress Isabel was just beautiful friendly and so attentive great service thanks
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.
