Food was superb, service excellent. Only issue is that it is a trifle difficult to find with access being via an alley-type arrangement. However we had a wonderful night and depending on what you order is very reasonably priced. The Tapas selections available are very extensive with plenty to choose from.
Wonderful service and a very good menu as well. We had a lovely experience there. The atmosphere of the hall is amazing especially if you want to chat and enjoy your dinner.
Balmains best kept secret, Alegrias is an amazing restaurant, superb food, delicious desserts and friendly staff! I would highly recommend taking the time to experience all Alegrias has to offer!!!
Nice food and service. Waitperson is friendly and helpful. Owner chef is humble and kind. Very good experience. Will come back and recommend to others.
Great food, great ambience, great wine. Service was friendly and on time. A couple of innocent mistakes but no complaints.. They were fixed quickly and with a smile. Live performance on Saturdays I believe but we were there on a Friday so can't comment. Fun vibe, it's a big place but still feels welcoming. We'll be going back
Great service, food was tasty & we looooooved the red wine sangria! If you are looking for a great night out, i would totally reccomend this place! We will be back!
Great food, nice atmosphere, and the waiters were attentive. The food arrived slowly. We ordered prior to the restarant filing up, so expected the food to arrive quickly. Every table seemed to be waiting on their next plate...excessive wait time
