I made a reservation for my family to celebrate my birthday and we had the buffet. The location is very central. There may not enough parking space though. The place itself is clean and got a good atmosphere. The staff are also nice and friendly. They got a trio musicians singing Spanish and other songs. You can request a song... More

Had their buffet for lunch recently. The food was typical Spanish food . Quite a wide spread to choose from. Service was respectable. Place was a bit crowded but still comfortable. Parking not a problem in this particular branch. Location of this restaurant might be their problem as its hidden on the 4th floor of this building. But there was... More

I treated my mom to Alba Restaurante Espanola for lunch. This is our favorite Spanish restaurant. We love to dine here in their cozy restaurant.

Alba along Tomas Morato is one of the oldest restaurants in the area. Growing up, I had the impression that it's too posh and expensive for me. Finally when I felt that I can afford it, I gave it a try, and was very surprised that it is actually not so expensive. It's just comparable to other restaurants in the... More

Come for the cochinillo, the beef adobo (closest to slow-cooked homestyle), and everything in between.

My second trip to Alba, after a few years, with more relatives tagged along during the last Philippines Independence day (no traffic!). I knew this will be a blockbuster for everyone and Alba never failed to exceed expectation. The callos, paella and lechon de leche are still a festival on one's palate. They re-arranged their tables which is quite refreshing... More

Sure, the Alba Restaurante Español is one good hell of a restaurant if what we are talking about is the range of "how palatable" and "how classy" this restaurant is. However, one (MUST) should not take their family to Alba because a.) It offers a limited serving of food which will make your family members feast on just a piece... More

Quite possibly a textbook example of the perfect restaurant. Awesome food? Check. Live music by professionals? Check. Good service, good prices, good everything? Check, check, check. The variety of food on hand might not be that much for some people who are used to other more popular buffets, but the questions is - do you really need that many dishes... More

Spanish cuisine is very interesting and it's been one of the favorites of my family. We had Spanish buffet at Alba Restaurante Espagnol last Sunday. The restaurant ambiance is superb. The food is great especially the Paella. I personally like the tapas and the Canonigo. I find Marshmallow Mousse really interesting.

We ate at the Alba twice. I recommend the tapas. The second time we chose a wide selection of tapas and didn't bother with a main course. It has a pleasant ambience and the service is friendly and quite efficient. It tends to get pretty full at the week-ends.
