One of the best at t. Morato

Always my first choice of dinner place in the Morato area, Nice ambience , good food, relatively good priced buffet. Only lacking is a good coffee that should be included with the buffet.

I love buffets. Not because I want to stuff myself , well a little bit, but because of the variety they offer. Alba didn't fail in this aspect, they even have two types of paella (only one for lunch buffet though). Love the lengua and suckling pig. Almost everything is yummy but alas, they're just too rich and flavorful for... More

This is the best Spanish restaurant for me. Great paella and lengua as well as their roast pork. Tapas are a must. Perfect place for catching up with the fambam. Service are also very commendable.

Even though it's an old establishment, it feels like new to me when I stepped inside. The homey feeling is a plus. We only tried the Paella that time. The taste is good, that you want to go back if you'll crave for paella again. The trio sang 2 songs while we were eating.

Alba's doesn't serve the best Spanish food out there but it does well enough and is usually reliable. Key dishes are gamba al ajillo and paella negra. Prices are on the high side but is typical of Spanish restos.

Love their buffet. The cochinillo is awesome I would prefer more desserts and appetizer. Price is so-so. Not cheap but too expensive

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
