Paella. Serenade. Chill

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

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
