A FRESH SEASONAL NEW MENU

Our Executive Chef is passionate about using fresh seasonal ingredients and local produce to deliver mouth-watering quality and consistency with every beautiful, flavoursome bite. The dedicated wait staff provide the exceptional hospitality to match the exceptional food.

“The menu is designed to share and is suited to all ages. Start with Woodford flatbread, house labneh and green chilli zhough. Continue the theme with grilled Moreton Bay bugs with Cafe De Paris. Seasonality and locally sourced produce and a sense of occasion come together in Alex and Co’s open kitchen. Try our take on schnitzel with a fermented chilli butter or classic meatlovers re-invented via our woodfired oven with spiced brisket and spicy harissa.”

Overall our experience as a group of 10 was great.
The only particular fault was that one group member had Sirloin Steak and it was quite grisly and not the standard expected.
Love love loved the Halloumi with Honey and Mushroom Gnocchi!!!!

Alex & Co was an excellent choice for dinner. The food was incredible and the service and atmosphere excellent. Will definitely be going back. I highly recommend the king prawn linguine. Yum!

It's a great spot, very popular and relatively good value. Noise level was a bit over the top though, especially when its still early and people are having dinner and want to have conversation. Maybe an idea to push the DJ start time out to say 8.30pm?
Service was a bit haphazard.

Not enough choice on the menu and the meals came out at different times. The first person had almost finished by the time the last meal came out. Hot beverage was lumpy and horrible and the restaurant was windy and cold.

The food was fine, but the customer service is terrible and the very reason I will not come back here.
We came on a relatively quiet Sunday. It was less than half full with so many staff walking around that clearly did not want to be there and showed it in their lack of care.
Orders took far too long to come out. We asked three times for salt. Desert came without with no cutlery, we had to ask twice for this.
I got up to go to the bathroom only to return to the table & find my half full glass of wine had been taken with no warning from the waiter to the table of people still there. Clearly we hadn’t finished. I explained the situation to the bar staff who then called a waiter over and rather than relay the information, told the waiter ‘she has a complaint’ and walked away. I then explained the whole thing to the waiter who said I will bring you another glass of wine but then returned to the table without the replacement wine to tell me that they took my previous glass because it was empty. A blatant lie which I refused to accept. In the end I got a glass of wine but what a ridiculous way to treat a paying customer.
First and last time for me.... what a disappointment.

The restaurant was large. It was very convenient to order and pay at the table. The food menu wasn’t appealing too basic and almost everything was deep fried or a lot of carb. There was no healthy options like main salads. Disappointing menu.
Cutlery and water glasses weren’t clean or polished for the next guest to use.
Didn’t see my service but it seemed like only one girl (host) was running around and helping and servicing. The runner and bar boys didn’t seem like that they didn’t want to be there.

It seemed like a self service restaurant. The usher showed us the table, after that it was all self service from scanning, getting the menu and ordering on-line to getting your own plates and cutlery, water etc though the prices of food and drinks were of at par with another restaurant where your are served everything by the waiters. It was my son's 25th birthday celebration and didn't feel like we were celebrating in an up-market restaurant. Even getting the box to pack the cake we had to request twice to 2 people before they brought it to us. Also the online and actual menu's were different. I saw a cktail and asked the bartender who was unaware of it.

Good food, nice cocktails, but very poor service!

overall experience wasn’t too bad, although for the price you pay the amount of food and quality isn’t the best. service was average, definitely could improve on a few things to make the experience a little better.

Brilliant - great service, atmosphere and food.

The only let down was the construction in Church Street, which is no fault of Alex&Co.

There was no service, upon asking for cutlery was told to get it ourselves from the bar and considering covid this doesn't seem very sanitary. The cocktails were terrible considering how expensive they are they tasted cheap and like cordial. The only upside was the food was alright.

Had a beautiful 39th birthday! Want to thank everyone of them as they made my day so special ☺️

They organised the table so we could all dine together and they went an extra mile serving me a desert with candle as a surprise. I will absolutely be back 🥰

The food was very disappointing considering the place had such good reviews.
Firstly the steak was very chewy and we asked for the jus to be on the side but it was served drizzled all over the steak which made it unenjoyable.
The prawn linguine was heavily tomato based and pasta was a big clump and stuck together.
The pumpkin ravioli was undercooked and unenjoyable.
The mojito cocktails were on the strong side and unpleasant.
When asked how our meal was at payment time and we advised about the steak which was barely eaten, all was said was that the feedback will be passed on to the chef.

Was very disappointed as I prearranged to stay after our seating as we were having a hens night, only to be told to leave after we ate. This put a real damper on our night. I would have given a fantastic review if I night had not been stuffed up

First time visit. The wait staff were good, helped us relocate to fit more people.
Food was good, not great.
Drinks were prompt except the iced water!
Overall has the bones for becoming great if each element is tighter.

we booked 2x 2 hour slots. Our first slot we were asked to move after 1 hour 40 minutes. Our 2nd slot we were asked to move after 1 hour and 5 minutes! Half the time of our allocated slot! Even after asking no explanation was given. We booked just the same as everyone else yet was asked to move tables 3 times.
