We organised a family celebration, we were over 15 people. The organisation was excellent, all was in time and exactly as we ordered. We enjoyed the privacy of the terrace. The meal was simply excellent, with an outstanding seafood platter. Gemma, the manager, was efficient, nice and reliable during the previous organisation.

The hotel and restaurant was hard to find during the evening as it is located on a quiet street without signboards. The restaurant is on the top floor, with light breeze as an advantage; but also with lots of mosquitoes (restaurant provides spray). We went to this place based on a recommendation of good steak from someone else, though this... More

You could be quite impressed at first sight - pleasant decor, sea breeze (though not quite a sea view). Menu - marine influenced with a catch of the day. Prawn curry was fine, but serving could have been more generous. Catch of the day -parrot fish. This time a good serving of fish, well cooked, with a small helping of... More

Beautiful hotel, went there for a late afternoon business meeting and ordered food only to be told that they cannot serve us as the restaurant was full booked.... Funny thing is that we were the ONLY two people in the whole restaurant!!! So I would not be too keen to walk in if you you happen to have too much... More

If I could, I would give this 3.5 stars. Some where around a 'good'. Nice setting upstairs. Airy and light. Came with a group of 8 and we were well served. My beef was of both good quality and cooked as requested. The menu is not so extensive but contains sufficient options. Neither cheap nor outrageous. Good service.

Alexander's Hotel offers an airy and charming restaurant somewhat hidden away in the Mary Knoll Lane. No overloaded menu, but a good selection of very pricy wines. Unfortunately the food did not live up to the nice surroundings. We had meat balls and crab pate as starters; neither called for great ovations. The fish filet was quite nice, but the... More

Recommended to try Alexander's (restaurant, but is also a small hotel). I was not disappointed. The waiter was pleasant and efficient. I tried the fish fillet of the day, which was excellent (Dorade) and cooked well (still firm, so not over-cooked). Friends tried the lamb chops which were good, but one of the chops may have been too well cooked,... More

Note: This review is an average of experiences at Alexander's Restaurant over four visits in the past couple of months (though I have been there several times in the past few years). I have always loved their hidden location (call ahead to book a table), their cozy setup (very comfortable), their selection of wines (decently priced too), their range of... More

Visited the restaurant twice. They are supposed to have specials, but only to those who ask. The wait staff is not able to explain the food and it was almost impossible to understand them. We settled on the lobster special of the nigh (they were prepared two ways but we could not understand either the waiter or the chef so... More
