We celebrated our son"s birthday there. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Serve was quick and efficient, have been here on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed our meal, atmosphere is also very relaxing and peaceful.

Staff are lovely, positives end there. Pizzas bases are thin flavourless packet bases, the margarita topping was barely edible. Pasta was way way over cooked and my 'chicken' pasta had 1 piece of chicken mixed in. We were a party of 16 for two nights and majority of people didn't enjoy their meals. Steak seemed to be the only nice... More

Absolutely yuk. We had a party of 16 and 9 of us ordered chicken Snitz. Out of the 9 only 1 was cooked the rest were raw. I can not believe a restaurant would / could serve that. Terrible is all I have.

We had a wonderful family dinner here while staying at the resort. They were able to cater for our dietary needs. The food was all fresh and the menu had a great choice of food. The desserts were amazing.

Al Lago is located in Rafferty's Resort. It commands a wonderful view over the lake and the setting is ideal for a lovely meal to compliment the view. We were in the area in January 2017 and having stayed at Rafferty's resort in April 2016 we decided to drop in for lunch. Unfortunately we should have learnt from our first... More

We went for dinner on a Wednesday night. We did not book but the staff were more than happy to juggle things and fit us is. The staff looked after us well, making sure we had plenty of water for the table and that we were comfortable. The food was ok. The kids pizza had a lot of cheese and... More

This restaurant is right on the edge of the lake. We had excellent food both nights of our stay at Raffertys Resort. My compliments to the chef who does a great job and to the young girl and boy who waited on us so efficiently.

Although this eatery advertises as a restaurant it is a poolside cafe charging top prices. The food was very good but when I pay $34 for a meal I do not expect to pay an extra &9 for vegetables. As it is open to the pool we had children running around yelling with none of the staff doing anything to... More

We ate here while we were staying at raffertys resort and it was a really nice meal. That said, if you're staying here and don't want to drive anywhere its about all there is to choose from. The menu is good with lots of options to choose from and the service is excellent.

Thank austj
