Dear Alatoenro

THANK YOU SO MUCH for making our wedding, the wedding of the year!! We have had so many comments from guests that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to.

You all went above and beyond to make it the evening that it was, from bringing food to us on the beach, to setting up the entire venue with a basic brief from a casual bride! From following us all around with food and filling up our drinks, to just being there to help every step of the way.

I don’t even know what else to say to say thank you, and to show how happy we are! We can now visit Alatonero as our special place for lunch or dinner. Hopefully we can make it down before we fly out for our Honeymoon to see you, have a meal and show you some photos!

Hi Narelle,

Thank you! We had a fantastic time! All the staff were fantastic, food was amazing as always! And everyone had so much fun and most importantly so did we! 😉
We are obsessed with the restaurant now! And will probably come back every anniversary too!

Hi Narelle,
We had such an amazing experience. All Alatonero staff in the preparation and event day made us and our guests feel so welcome and special. Everyone thought Brad was an absolute legend!

The food was Devine! Hugh and I were laughing on our wedding day because we wanted to come back the following weekend and have dinner at Alatonero. We knew we had made the right choice of venue if we want to keep coming back…so we definitely won’t be strangers.

Thank you so much for everything on our special day on Feb 9th!!  It really was so perfect, despite the weather threatening to put a spanner in the works!

Massive compliments to  the team for looking after us.  Your team even organised a take away pack for Mark and I which was brilliant as we were a bit too busy talking and dancing to eat!!

We will never be strangers to Alatonero, especially given Mum lives right behind you!  We will probably be down Easter weekend, so will see you then.
