We were greeted with a warm welcome. Our dog received a big bowl of water before we even sat down. Great setting, people and food

Amazing setting, right by the sea. Sorry but food was a letdown. Ordered espedata medium, had to send back twice as served very rare. Peri peri chicken very disappointing. What a shame as they were not very busy.

We could not eat here, they were fully booked. I guess phone ahead first. We did just pop in on a whim. The views are great though.

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. From the views to the food to the service it was all great. It is situated right on the rocks by the beach. The menu isn't very large but you will surely find something to your liking. We had the...cob and the hake. The fish was fantastic and the chips is to die for. The prices are reasonable and not overpriced at all. A must when in st Helena Bay!More

We had a super meal here on our short break to the west coast. It was delightful to have a sea view and hear waves lapping. The staff was friendly and helpful, and both our meals were delicious. A perfect evening.

Great views. Food was abit of a let down! Menu looked great but food arrived cold and bland. Hope the next time we visit things will be different!

Feels like being on some exotic island. Great food and service, best in the area. Try the calamari starter or the hot chicken livers, these are so good that I haven't tried much else yet

My wife and I were unsure where to go for dinner in the St Helena Bay area, but Alegria was recommended to us by other people staying at the same B&B. We are very glad we visited! The setting was beautiful, the service was great,...and the food was amazing - we had the calamari starter which was sublime, and I really enjoyed the Portuguese steak. We will return!More

Most amazing hake smothered in garlic, mushroom and cheese sauce. The calamari was also nice and to top it all we were enjoying the beautiful view and Charlie's brewery craft beer (the stout is my favourite). The staff are also very friendly and efficient.

What a fantastic find this was.. came highly recommended and was not disappointed.. the hosts were amazing considering they were short staffed on the day.. went out of their way to accommodate our requirements.. definitely coming back when I visit St Helena’s Bay
