We decided to check out Restaurant on Alma for our wedding anniversay. Would highly recommend the pork belly. Staff were attentive, food was excellent. The kids corner is a great idea, it certainly kept my child entertained during the short wait for the food to come out. 10/10

I have booked with other places with First Table and sometimes the attitude of staff towards someone paying 50% off food as compared to someone paying full price is different. But not at this restaurant. We had such a wonderful time. The staff made my wife's birthday so memorable, she touted that dinner as her best birthday dinner ever. Serene environment,
amazing food and impeccable service with a genuine smile. Loved it. Thank you!

We had great service and the food was amazing with very good portion sizes. Everyone enjoyed their meals immensely, I had the scallops followed by the steak which was cooked to perfection, and then the deep fried bananas which were also stunning.

This was our second time dining at Alma, which on its own is a recommendation considering the choice of restaurants in hamilton and surrounds. It's a pleasant atmosphere and offers both inside and outside seating. The staff are friendly and helpful with meal choices and the food tasty and satisfying. A good experience all round

What a great dining out experience for my family. Fantastic food and service. We even got to see the silver ferns and Australian diamonds which added to the experience.

We enjoyed our dinner at Restaurant on Alma. The menu wasn’t too large but had great options, the service was attentive and the meal came in good time. The food was delicious and potions were spot on for us. The one downside was signage. Outside the venue there were no signs to the restaurant, just the hotel, and even in the hotel foyer at the entrance to the restaurant there weren’t signs. It made it difficult for someone new to Hamilton.

Great ambience and super service. Food was delicious too. A must visit if you are in Hamilton. We wouldn't have known about this place or tried it if it wasn't for first table.
We had ordered a starter called pan seared banana prawns and they were super delicious and cooked to perfection. The service was a bonus, they gave us a bowl of water to wash our fingers after having the prawns (not something we have experienced in New Zealand so far) and they do not serve straws with mocktails as they are helping save the turtles. What a great thought! It was superb dining experience for us.

I had a wonderful hot date night so the ambiance and food was on point. The pork belly is my favorite main. Even being able to park out the front meant no hassles in finding a park in the center of town. I can't wait to go back and try more food off their menu.

Good food but was disappointed that the waitress did not offer the Matariki challenge menu which looked interesting. It was a new menu which could have been more extensive but the food that we ordered was good.

We were privileged to a wonderful dining experience at Restaurant on Alma. As first time guests there was certainly a wow factor not only with the food but also the service. Our waitress was so helpful for the evening and made us feel at home. The chef is to be congratulated as well on the stunning meals that were presented to us. We could not fault anything and if we were to score would rate it as 10/10. Well done Restaurant on Alma we were impressed. We can certainly recommend this restaurant as a place for a delicious food.and top class service.
