Sea food chowder was hearty and perfect. Main course was tasty and excellent. Dessert platter was amazing. Views were breathtaking. Service was outstanding. A really lovely meal and experience. The chef also greeted us which was special.
the food was excellent. The apy and the main course were really good. Had scallops and pork - was excellent - the chef came out and asked us about the food - nice touch. Bread appy was great as was dessert. Highly recommend.
Wonderful food. Excellent service. Lovely setting.
I had the brioche French toast and it was delicious! Such a treat and beautifully presented.
The food was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive but did not hover. All of the employees were friendly. The view was spectacular. We will definitely be returning soon!!
The food was amazing! The server was friendly and quick and I'll definately be coming back!
We were surprised And somewhat disappointed that the menu featured so much heavy German food.
It was good overall so paying a little more usually would be great rather than good.
Service wasn’t great, she would disappear for long periods of time, seemed uninterested in being there. Waitress didn’t even sanitize the debit machine between collecting tables payment.
The view and ambiance was amazing. One of the best brunch places I have been. Staff were attentive and catered to every request as best as they can. Overall an amazing experience and will be back for more.
Amazing food and incredible service by the server and Jack. Thank you for a wonderful evening
it is so romantic and peaceful to enjoy a meal here!
The food was absolutely delicious! What a great culinary experience!
The food, presentation and variety is outstanding! We had 3 dinners here and each one was uniquely wonderful. Staff work very hard to make sure you are having a safe and pleasant experience.
The visit from the chef on our last evening was truly a gift. Many thanks!!
Great food as always! It’s become one of our go to restaurants for either everyday dining or special occasions.
Wonderful restaurant! I've always wanted to dine here. The views were of course incredible. We were an hour early fir dinner, and they gracefully seated us promptly at one of the best tables. Our server was prompt and attentive but not overbearing. Food was incredible, and very reasonable. Can't wait to return.
Jack and his staff were amazing and made our experience one we will never forget. The food was amazing and views were beautful.
Fantastic German food. Really enjoyed the experience.
Overdone and dry.
My wife and I attended the restaurant celebrating our anniversary. We were told at the time we made our reservation that if we were five minutes late our table would be given to someone else. We were certain to arrive about fifteen minutes early and waited almost five minutes before anyone acknowledged our presence. The servers (two) were pleasant. We asked one question about the menu and the server had to leave to get an answer. One of the servers was wearing a soiled top. The entire time we dinned, there were only two other persons dinning. I am not certain who our table would have been given to if we had have been six minutes late. The view was outstanding and food was good. We had a desert coffee following our meal. It came without the traditional toppings but the server seemed to catch that something was missing and it was added. After had our first sip a server came out announcing the coffee was not decaffeinated as requested. The server was apologetic and offered to take our coffees away. We decided to drink them rather than wait for the new decaffeinated ones. There was room to recognize the error by comping one or even both coffee errors. That did not happen. It was not the experience we were looking for.
Amazing food (which the chef adjusted for our food sensitivities, without notice!), wonderful views and the the waiter was the best, making every wish come true. Very special place where we enjoyed our Silver Wedding anniversary lunch.
We had a delicious breakfast and cocktails. It was a very lovely experience. The staff were very friendly and professional and the food was great!
First time at the Aerie. Unfrotunately the fog was in which of course is no ones fault. Food was good except that my what should have been medium eggs, one was overcooked and one was undercooked, not sure how that happened
Lovely restaurant for that special occasion, good food and excellent service.
Great food and service!
Quiet and peaceful setting
We stopped in for a happy hour drink of a Pisco Sour, and it was one of the best that I have tasted. Our light dinner was superb and we will definitely be back. So much so that we now have booked three days at the resort.
I wasn’t our first time there, and, as always, we were highly impressed by the staff and most definitely by the food! Highly recommended experience!
My husband and I found this Gem in July and we have been back for dinner 3 times and breakfast once, we have also stayed in the hotel once and are staying again next week. I don't know how I have gone so long without knowing about it. I can honestly say this is some of the best food I have every had in my life. The seafood pasta, do die for, the Risotto and scallops YUMMY, my mouth waters just thinking about it. The view - STUNNNING, and service top not.
I tell everyone I know that the must go try out this restaurant.
Service can be better, side orders were missed, no grounded peppers were offered. For a higher end restaurant, only white sugars were available.
I had the eggs bennie with mushrooms and it was delicious!
Good food, good service, great views. Will be back again.
Besides the jaw-dropping view, the food was incredible. My server was very friendly and personable. When I told her my dilemma of not being able to decide what to have as I was dining alone and didn’t have someone to split dishes with she suggested me getting a half order of French toast with a single egg and potatoes. Voila! My little sampler breakfast, a bit of everything. Overall, such a nice experience. I’ve been wanting to visit for a long time, it was wonderful that it not only lived up to my expectations, it exceeded them.
Terrific food and view.
The restaurant had an amazing view with exceptional service. The food was delicious and very well priced for the quality. The staff was friendly and very attentive, the food came in a timely manner and the staff was able to answer any questions we had. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
It was just ok
Could have gone to a basic restaurant for the same experience
Two breakfasts and a late dessert/wine indulgence. The eggs Benedict were great and I could order half which was perfect for me. The staff are outstanding. We will definitely dine there again when on island.
It was good food with good portions though the menu selection was limitted. Awesome deserts. The waitress was attentive but appologized several times for the slow serving of the food and drinks. The bartender and chefs were very slow in preparing which reflected poorly on the service. No excuse as it was not busy. I sensed she genuinely was a bit helpless on the matter and felt bad. The views from the tables were great and created a nice ambience.
The Alpina Restaurant never disappoints. Spectacular food, service and views make this spot one of our favourites.
Extraordinary food and service amidst a most unusual COVID experience. There is no challenging the view from the dining room, Outstanding! Very thoughtful staff for a special occasion.
We found the server to be standoffish. She seemed to be short with her dialogue with us and arrogant in her approach to her duties. The older gentleman who had helped a bit however was excellent in his approach and demeanour. She should try and emulate him.
The ambiance could have been better with some appropriate background music befitting such a magnificent facility and view.
