This place might not look like too much from the outside but it's a gem of a find on busy Alona beach. The prices are reasonable and while the rooms are basic, they are clean and as advertised and the bed is the comfiest I have EVER slept in! Great breakfast and lovely staff too. The love music is a... More

We tried the BBQ and waited about 1 hour for it, in the meantime we were entertained by no service at all. Which is bad when one is thirsty as it happens on beaches. Only after I went to the ordering place I eventually got my drinks and a while later some food.

We went to Trudi's the first night we arrived and the food was alright, but nothing special- same goes for the staff. You can do better.

I was supprised when I saw the prices - lower than in similar places. I was more supprised when I got the food - delicious and made me feel full after eating. I especially recommend sets, as they're the best in value-for-money. The staff is nice. Eating by the seaside - priceless!

Trudis always works and quickly became our fall back option at any time. They offer excellent breakfast, all sorts of lunch, live music that turns to an karaoke party. If you are not sure where to go, go there

Considering the location, prices are ok and the food is good although they had no more chicken on the night I went.

Trudi's Place has decent accommodations. I usually go there for the waterfront food and drinks. Good service, decent happy hour prices and excellent ambiance.

The only thing that I didn't like here is the 'stuffed grilled squid' that they have in their menu. It's quite misleading. They should just name it 'grilled squid' because there was barely any stuffing in it. It has perhaps a quarter of a tomato and a few bits of onion. Apart from that, it was a nice place to... More
