This was an environment where the quality of the food was surprising considering the casual nature of the place. Has a small B&B upstairs. Serves all meals with creative, different interpretations that have to be tried to be appreciated. Worth a trip.

Our group (two couples) dined at Alma in 2009. The food was spectacular but the service was indifferent and the décor was bleak. We didn't bother to return until recently, and we were happy to find that Alma now excels on all measures (food, service,...More
