    Restaurant was closed, and had been for 3 weeks, despite getting an automated ‘please confirm’ your booking 24 hours before. Owners should have informed the booking company and therefore avoid issues like this. Staffing issues apparently, which is a massive shame as this was one of the best restaurants in Whitby, and we go every time we visit. Hope the staffing issues get resolved for our next visit.

    I had my reservation booked for my birthday weeks in advance. We arrived on the day to the restaurant closed, no one at Alberts Eatery bothered to notify me of this. There were no staff there to explain what was happening. Very unprofessional

    We’d booked Alberts to celebrate our wedding anniversary and despite getting confirmation of our booking and even a text reminder on the day of the booking to say our table would be ready we got to the restaurant to find it locked and closed! I appreciate all business can experience emergency situations, but to not even try and advise people who had taken the time to make a reservation is unforgivable.

    Very disappointing. Having booked a couple of weeks in advance, and confirmed the day prior, we arrived to find the restaurant closed. No notice outside, no message on the answerphone, no note on the website. It came to light that the closure was due to staffing issues. We understand the reason for closure but not the lack of information.

    Due to staff shortages, there was hardly any choice on the menu , the service was poor , and when a member of our party asked for a decaffeinated coffee we were told they didn’t have any ! Unfortunately our friends had come to Whitby for a long weekend from Liverpool and having looked at the menu and the photos we thought it would be a lovely experience - however we couldn’t have been more wrong.

    Nice building with lovely interior. Friendly, attentive staff. I had been hankering after fish soup and Albert's did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to be there the day the enormous pieces of jet were being crated up for removal to the fossil festival, which was interesting. Friendly, interesting and delicious food. The wine was good and reasonably priced, too. Thank you for a great lunch.

    Beautiful space and feel to the place. Lunch menu limited and with only one vegetarian option. Menu not as advertised on internet and prices had jumped considerably so check before you go of you are price conscious. I advised we were meeting up for a birthday but restaurant made no mention of it, which was a shame - so should have done better. Not busy, appear to be struggling for lunchtime trade. Would visit again but hopefully service is a bit more dynamic next time.

    We had the crab sandwich and the chowder. Both very fresh and tasty, beware of the portion size of the chowder, it could have easily fed both of us and, although very, very tasty, was also super rich. Service was very good and the venue is very unique. Highly recommned.

    Ambiance of this venue was very nice, music but not too loud. Staff were very nice & polite with service being very good. The food we had (seafood chowder) was extremely good and the accompanying white wine (french) very nice indeed. We will definitely visit this venue again for lunch when we are in the area. We would also like to try the evening menu sometime as this looks equally as tasty as the lunch menu. Overall a brilliant lunch.

    Unfortunately our meal was not as expected. I ordered pork which had been overcooked alongside the kale, which had lost its body. What was most disappointing was my girlfriends meal. She had ordered duck, served with orange glazed carrots, pomme puree and a port jus. This was served as duck, with mash, the carrots were steamed with no glaze (should have been roasted in the orange sauce while removing to baste occasionally), and the port jus should have been a rich port sauce made with duck fat but it was a thin beef-flavoured gravy very very similar in flavour to bisto! I do expect seeing we were relatively young that the chef decided to save time by serving the wrong meal, not as advertised ! Relatively insulting and certainly not how I know it should have been prepapred, not to even include any orange glaze and then to go and make a beef gravy when my girlfriend was being served duck! Shameful! Demonstrates a severe lack of care and attention for your customers. To add to that, it was requested that the dish be served without black pepper as my girlfriend has an intolerance. The staff acknowledged this but served her the duck seasoned in pepper quite heavily, which they later admitted, causing her to be quite uncomfortable for the rest of the evening and unable to eat her meal. Even though pepper is not a recognised allergen it is something people can form intolerance to, having become qualified in food safety myself and my father being a food safety expert as his career choice, I find it very disappointing the chef put his customer at risk despite our specific request and presumably his thinking being "black pepper is not a recognised allergen" - it is a recognised irritant and intolerance

    Very expensive. Get there are issues with hospitality struggling but no starter under ten pounds or main under 20. Potato in chowder raw. Told waitress who said do we want it replacing as we ate around the potatoes and left them. She asked if starter was okay a good 15 mins after we received it. Too late to rectify. Nothing offered alternatively as recompense. Place empty. We come to Whitby a lot. Will not return here. 100 pounds for a starter, main, a bottle of wine and two pints. I know it’s Christmas but food I’ll gladly pay for at this price has to be good or exceptional. Including very attentive service. Was okay.

    A fabulous unusual venue, ideal for a special meal in a special place. The 2 courses we each had were superb although the vegetarian starter (tabbouleh and hummus) was very small and overpriced and that is the only reason we didn't score all 5's! We will definitely be back next time we visit Whitby.
