Very disappointed to find that although we had booked a table for two we were seated alongside each other with other people at a bench running up the centre of the restaurant, with other diners sitting directly opposite us. We asked if we could have a table for two and were told this was not possible because we’d only booked four days ago and all the small tables had been allocated. We were in the restaurant for over an hour and there were four tables for two empty for the whole of this time. The experience felt more like a Victorian workhouse than a fine dining experience. Although the food was good the ambience was uncomfortable and I wouldn’t recommend it when there are so many exceptional restaurants in Whitby.
First class meal in a wonderful setting of the old Wesleyan Church. Service was very good and the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.
Gorgeous food with exceptional service. Very friendly staff.
There was only one negative about our visit to Alberts Eatery and that was the temperature. It was quite chilly no hearing on. Towards the end of our delicious meal I put my coat on!
Having got the ‘last table’ online at 4.30 on Sunday, we arrived expecting a bustling atmosphere. Sadly this was not the case. We were the only table. It felt like the staff were waiting for us to finish so that they could go home. The food was over cooked. Cod en papillote was rubbery, as were the clams. Prawns steamed, overdone and tasteless, broccoli soggy and very wet. The monkfish was similar. Hake was the catch of the day and was ok served with a sauce and boiled potatoes. The best out of the 4 meals. Quite pricey for this standard of cooking. We mentioned our disappointment but got no apology. The waitress was friendly but just said that she would tell the kitchen staff. No further comments or compensation. Didn’t want to stay for dessert!
Excellent food in an interesting and characterful building right in the heart of the old town of Whitby
First time have been to Alberts and what a wonderful experience. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. The food was totally delicious. My husband had steak and I had cod in a parcel.It was just perfect. Will definitely go back. Can highly recommend.
Excellent food and very attentive staff, will definitely be back!
Lovely food, the belly pork was scrumptious 😋 lovely surrounds , very friendly staff, well done with your new adventure, will defo be back, Thankyou for calling the place after my dad😚 👏👏👏👏😘
Loved our experience there, beautiful surroundings, great service, wonderful food & wine with good portions 😊
Excellent service and food in a really nice atmospheric venue. Maitre d was very friendly and helpful. Seafood was great and very large portions! Recommended
Small but varied selection with something for everyone, busier than it used to be before Covid but selection just not quite as good but they are still trying new things under new management.
The food was lovely, well cooked and presented and the staff worked hard to ensure my dietary needs were met. The restaurant is beautifully styled and has a nice vibe. The staff were very courteous and accommodating.
Lovely, quirky , place to eat. Not a huge menu but adequate . All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, which included starters and mains. Staff were friendly and service was good. Would recommend and will definitely return.
Amazing venue, the host was awesome with recommendations of food and wine that turned out to be just perfect.
Not rush at the table at all and we stayed and ordered another bottle of wine.
Good was amazing it really was…. Couldn’t rate the place higher
Nothing bad to say this place is. Gem one definitely to go back to
The gallery setting is beautiful & this raised the overall & ambience score.
I was one of a party of seven, a few had the cod, while tasty, we all agreed it was too salty, if the chef had tasted their food would they have served this to us? The restaurant did have have enough lemon possets to fulfill our dessert order, they 'only had three left'. Comparing the sizes of the posset served to the table beside us to what we were served, I can only assume that the restaurant split the one remaining posset between three people at my table & added extra berries to top it up. Disappointedly the posset didn't taste of lemon.
The staff went out of their way to accommodate, excellent meal highly recommend.
Really tasty food and great, friendly service. Beautiful building features IE tiles and organ and we enjoyed the music but lighting was a bit bright which is a shame as it ruined the atmosphere and made it less cosy, would definitely be nicer if the lighting was lower / 'warmer'.
We received our starters and mains at the same time.
Some imaginative dishes, excellent quality and great service
Fantastic food and lovely staff. Amazing refurb of an old building.
King scallops with black pudding fritter were excellent, as were the hake steaks. Presentation was superb, ambience was excellent. Menu was original and creative. Best meal by far so far in Whitby (3 more restaurants to come)
Lovely and very different type of venue. Excellent food and delivered promptly by delightful friendly staff. Already recommended to others staying at same holiday accommodation.
Absolutely fantastic.. The greeting from the team was superb.. The restaurant decor was unbelievable,, so interesting, great music too...
But the food was amazing, just amazing,, well done to you all.. We arnt local, but woukd make the trip back to whitby,, just to eat at this wonderful little gem..
Lovely atmosphere, even though it was fairly quiet when we were there. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good, varied menu, we all enjoyed our meals.
The only slight issue we had was with one of the desserts, orange cream cake, it was a dry, overbaked sponge with a buttercream filling, no cream or orange in sight.
This did not affect our overall positive experience, we had a lovely evening and would definitely go back.
Quirky setting in Whitby’s jet museum. Food centres fish but menu includes meat and some vegetarian options. I had a smoked aubergine and white bean casserole which was lovely - much nicer than it sounds! Friendly and knowledgeable service. Good wine list with reasonably priced choices. Deserves to succeed.
Lovely setting,nice friendly staff offering a well spaced evening meal.
Lovely, relaxing lunch. Waitress was very helpful and friendly
Delicious food served in amazing venue. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely recommend to friends and family
Booked on line but on arrival our table was next to reception and did not feel part of the restaurant. Had a main abd dessert. Main was outstanding however desserts poor in comparison my orange cream cake had synthetic cream and little flavour.
Delicious well presented food. Flavours put together well. Great choice on menu and good portion sizes. Great value. Waitresses were smiley and lovely, took us to table, but left us far too long. Had to ask them to order. I don’t mind waiting but it began to feel like ages. Nice old hall. Lights too bright, so ambiance not great- as lights on in shop area. Wouldn’t want to sit near there.
Food excellent, service good.
We have eaten here several times and it has never let us down. The staff are always friendly and cheerful. The wine is reasonably priced and very good. We both opted for steak this time and it was very tender and came with lots of delicious mushrooms. To top it all I love eating in a converted church. It brings out my inner goth.
What a wonderful venue, from start to finish the service was impeccable. The food was outstanding and the alcohol menu delightfull. This establishment has it right! Well done we will be back!
Good cooking, good ingredients, good value and efficient service.
Best place to eat in Whitby.. excellent food, service…. Never eaten in museum before but lovely ambience. Wish I had booked more times to go there on our stay in Whitby
Food great but service very slow despite having very few diners in.
Good food and service nice wine list.interesting location.Low on staff levels but didnt affect an excellant evening
We loved our experience at the Albert Eatery. All staff were super nice and friendly. The manager told us about the catch of the day and the special and even told us about the difference between Whitby gin and other gins. The food was delicious and had good portions for the price, also try their desserts are they are divine . We 100% recommend going.
We’ve eaten here before and really enjoyed it. Lovely menu and as soon as we sat down, the manager turned at least 4 tables away as they were full yet in our 1hour 20 mins there the tables remained empty? I ordered mussels, they arrived but I then had to ask for the accompaniments…cold chips and definitely not sourdough. It took at least 10 minutes to get someone’s attention. Fabulous bottle of white wine as no Chablis in the list. 4 average desert options but again difficult to get anyone’s attention to pay. If this was the service when it was quiet it would worry me if it was busy. Another couple had obviously booked online but there was no record of their booking. He was going to ‘squeeze’ them in…..it was empty. Whitby has a lot of choice and we are great advocates of c.w.sellors but this does their standard of quality no favours. There needs to be better diary management and more staff. If staff are the issue then they need to be honest and say so.
