Another great meal at the Alachi. Always a warm welcome, and very friendly waiters. We like the Alachi, both for the food, but also unlike some other restaurants you are not cramped up, and it is bright and airy. Our Granddaughters aged 6 and 3 love it too, as there is a large fish tank which fascinates them. Our 6 year told her mum she wants to go on her birthday too. We thoroughly recommend this excellent restaurant.

good food, but the restaurant was freezing!! There was a tiny little heater to heat quite a big room, would have stayed longer if we hadn't been so cold
