    Service was quality. The atmosphere was ok but a little bit cold. Food was lovely, however the pasta portion was slightly small. This restaurant is a once-a-year treat for us as it’s expensive compared to our usual budget for eating out (not saying it’s expensive full stop as everyone has different budgets). We had already spent enough on this visit so I unfortunately left hungry. It’s hard to choose what to eat from the menu as it’s mainly fish, as someone that can’t eat fish, very disappointing to only be able to have a choice of a few meals on a decent sized menu. Would still return and would still recommend to others though.

    Al MoloResponded todayThank you for your 4-stars, Sam. We are glad you enjoyed some aspects of your meal. We have tried our best to balance our menu with four fish and eight other dishes in our starters. The main course menu has six fish dishes and eight other dishes. We are sorry that you didn't find that enough choice for you. We have put this information in our response because we don't want other OpenTable diners to think we are only a fish restaurant. We look forward to seeing you again. Giuseppe and Tim

    Top quality experience at Al Molo. We had an excellent table overlooking the sea. Our dishes were excellent. The scallops and calamari starters were a very positive beginning with the calamari prepared in a more unusual way. A seafood linguini was stacked with mussels, prawns and other shellfish and had my wife drooling over it. My dish was the tortellini with braised lamb, Gorgonzola and walnuts. A combination I had not previously experienced but it was truly memorable. Service was good and there was no rush between courses - something I hate is when the next dish arrives as you are finishing the previous one. We were very glad we had chosen Al Molo for a meal and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.

    Al MoloResponded todayWhat a glowing review and recommendation, Terry. Thank you very much. You picked some great menu choices. The seafood linguini is our most popular dish. Giuseppe &amp; Tim

    Fantastic view, really great staff, food was delicious. Only issue was how long it took to arrive after ordering. We were sat at our table for 1hr 40mins before the main arrived. The starter came after about 45mins and we ordered fairly quickly upon arrival. Other than the delay in the food it was fantastic. Once the food arrived it was worth the wait

    Al MoloResponded todayWe are sorry you had to wait so long, Jon. Our fault completely. We had team members let us done just before we started service and we tried our best to cope. We appreciate you bearing with us and giving us 4-stars. Thank you. Giuseppe &amp; Tim

    Al MoloResponded on 26 June 2022Hi John, We are quite surprised at your review saying you waited an hour for your starter when you were only in the restaurant for 1 hour and 20 minutes. This according to the time your table was opened and when you paid your bill. regards Tim

    Great if you have no intolerances - my partner enjoyed the food but sadly as I’m lactose intolerant there were no dairy free alternatives or much I could eat. I asked for an allergy menu or for what they’d recommend and sorbet was the only thing fully dairy free. In a world where many people have intolerances and allergies I’m shocked there was so little on offer for anyone who does suffer. So sadly I won’t be going back personally as the menu us so limited. We were also sat next to a window with a construction as a view despite lovely tables being available overlooking the sea. Ambience was nice and the staff friendly but sadly the food puts a downer on this one.

    Al MoloResponded on 23 June 2022Hello Emma i m sorry but i have to totally disagree with you , our menu have all allergie listed so 9 starter out 13 are dairy free. 13 main are dairy free , and the risotto it can be made without butter and parmesan . so your review is totally unfair and untrue

    Very disappointed. Prawn starter had just two tiny prawns and at £13 felt very overpriced. Seafood linguine very bland with no seafood mixed in pasta. Prawns and mussels on side. Would not go again which is a shame as lovely setting overlooking the bay. In fairness I was not charged for the linguine

    Al MoloResponded on 23 June 2022Artie we apologies for on seafood linguine and you not been charge Regards the King Prawns the are THREE large Prawns around 7cm each the bigger on market in each portion but probably for you was tiny , obviously you don't buy fresh fish otherwise £13 is honest price ..

    The outside looks slightly worn, but the inside is spacious, relaxed and comfortable, with attentive staff at just the right level. The food was lovely, and a far cry from the pizza &amp; pasta chains. Good value with reasonably priced wine. Will definitely go there again next time we stay in Weymouth.

    We were in Weymouth for 3 nights and booked a fish restaurant for each one, but Al Molo was easily the best. To start with we had a wonderful view over the sea from our table and also had a really pleasant waitress to help us choose wine and our food. Not the smartest of waitresses, but so friendly and helpful and ready for a bit of banter. We shared a starter and then my seafood linguine was wonderfully tasty and well-balanced. Everything to a very high standard.

    I've always enjoyed eating at Al Molo's, but Covid has taken its toll of this restaurant. A lack of staff meant that the service was slow. The food was good though my King prawns needed a few more minutes of cooking, but the monkfish was excellent, though quite a small portion. The choc moose desert is always a winner. I will return.

    Booked a table here on a trip along the South Coast Path. Lovely views overlooking Weymouth beach. Very attentive and accommodating staff. Marvelous food. I ordered two appetizers rather than one entree just so I could try more than one of the wonderful recipes described in the menu. I don’t know Weymouth well, but doubt that there is anywhere we would have enjoyed more.
