We had a lovely time at this venue, celebrating my niece's 21st birthday. The staff were patient, welcoming and attentive, and the food was excellent.

This establishment clearly will be a winner due to its superb location on the promenade. We had two pizzas, two beers and a glass of Prosseco total bill £60 so should be right up there in the quality stakes. The pizzas were pretty tasteless, nice crusts and very soggy middles. Clearly taken out of the oven to soon, despite an... More

Alfresco is perfectly located on the beach opposite the West Peir and next to the i360. Parking was easy. There is a very good, varied Italian menu and everything is cooked fresh. Food and service were excellent.

I took a party of 9 to eat last week and throughtly enjoyed it. The food was excellent and the service also. Prices are slightly on the dear side, but we opted carefully for some starters and a main only, which kept the price to around £40 per head, including wine. The staff were very friendly and chatty. This restaurant... More

We really enjoyed this venue, a stones throw away from our hotel which was nice. We both enjoyed the food and the décor of the restaurant . At the time we arrived we had a lovely view over the sea. Would have liked a seat nearer the front for spectacular view but like gold dust.
