It's always a pleasure to dine at Alpha Restaurant. The food is a gastronomic experience and the wait staff very attentive. I recently dined here with friends who don't eat lamb which is a signature dish at Alpha. We chose the snapper and prawn dishes along with the spanakopita and several others which were a huge hit! Already looking forward to our next visit.

For a group I would certainly recommend as I think their offering for larger parties would be well received. I have been there a few times and have always enjoyed it, unfortunately on this occasion, I went for Dinner with some girlfriends, it was my Mum's last night before moving overseas, the service wasn't great and they spilled at least 6 glasses just behind us, wine went down my girlfriends dress and a few of us had glass in our shoes and there wasn't an apology. I totally understand accidents can happen (I am totally clumsy myself) but I would have expected at the very least an apology

We loved the relaxed atmosphere of this elegant and welcoming Greek restaurant. Beautiful decor and good lighting.
Food quality was very good, with the Spanakopita and the Cone Bay Barramundi meals both tasting very delicious.
Servings were generous and good value.
Wines were excellent and really enjoyable; the waiter advised the choice of wine for the meals in a professional and helpful manner.
An excellent dessert choice with the Chocolate & Fig Baklava with poached fig and ice-cream.
Service was very attentive by all; also with our waiter Chris going out of his way to take note of several food allergies, and serve us in an exceptional manner.
We look forward to returning to enjoy more of other interesting dishes listed on a well rounded menu.
Many thanks for a memorable lunch at “Alpha” restaurant.

Cheers,
Andrea

First time visiting this restaurant i had heard nothing about. My partner and I were on the lookout for Greek Cuisine and stumbled upon this on Google.

The food was delicious and reasonably priced for its portion size. There was a good variety of meat and vegetarian dishes on the menu.

We were seated quickly, and the wait staff were very friendly and helpful.

Drinks were on the pricey side with only a limited amount being served by the glass and the main dishes took a little while to be served. Otherwise a very pleasant experience would definitely return to try other dishes on the menu.

WE had a booking for 730 and called at 630pm to see if we could push it back to 815. The front counter said 815 so we said thank you. When we arrived 810pm the same gentleman at the front desk said “your lucky I saved your table” I’m like we called you and you offered to push it back to 815... other guest that we took without me making a comment said he was rude and I completely agree - front of staff need to be impeccable and that style of remark should not be acceptable in any industry especially when it’s the first comment mentioned to you once you arrive

Regrettably it was a disappointing experience.
1. We were at the mercy of the wait staff for wine top ups (the bottle was not kept at our table). Fair enough, however under these circumstances patrons should not be expected to ask for a top up.
2. We finished the bottle of wine (an easy feat with 4) & were not offered the opportunity to order more. A missed sale & a thirsty group.
3. Salad did not arrive.
4. Salad appeared on bill.
My 1st exp at Alpha was great, but last night was a letdown

Alpha ticks all the boxes for me: great food, great vibe, great selection of drinks/wine, great service. My guest and I each had the Kefalotryi Crumbed Pork Cutlet as a main. We each agreed close to our dish of the year! Juiciest pork cutlet I've ever eaten in a restaurant. The Citrus Salad with Parsley, Sweet Onion and Finger Lime was almost as good as the pork. Looking fwd to the Spanakopita next time also, outstanding.
