We weren't expecting much, frankly. I'd bumped into Joseph, the manager, and he was such a nice guy, I promised to 'pop in sometime'.
On the last day of my trip, my best mate in town (luckily and councidentally a 'foodie', popped in for dinner.
We each chose a different tasting menu, and settled back.
Then...fireworks!
I can honestly say this was in the top five meals I've ever had. To qualify that, I've done Paris's 'impossible to get a booking' culinary tables. I've done the Fat Duck, and several Gordon Ramsays. I've done Ferran Adria's El Bulli.
This meal outshone many of those, and while foregoing the theatricals, gave Adria a run for his money.
The head waiter is a jewel, and looks a bit like Sammy Davis Jr. He's funnier, and more charming. Every member of staff was friendly, and totally proud of and knowledgable about the food.
Enough. Just sell your granny into slavery and go to Alma. You'll thank me, I guarantee.

Took a last minute detour to Alma and was very happy they had available seats on a Friday evening. The food was top notch and definitely worthy of its recent one star award. The service was very personable and first rate for a restaurant of this caliber. Overall a great dining experience and will definitely be back.

Went last nite with a girl friend, the food was beautifully displayed and the service was excellent! Love their complimentary potato bread. They have an extensive wine list with every budget of wine available which is very good! Ambience was perhaps abit too quiet, no buzz and I could not hear any music on the background (which I would have preferred for this type of meal). In any case, they are deserving of their michelin star!

Service was patchy at best. They even missed one wine in my wine pairing. Food was one dimensional. All sauce and little depth of flavour. Overall was very disappointed. On the plus side when I said this to the management they did offer us a complimentary calvados and cognac. Which was nice.
