Wonderful tapas in a relaxed atmosphere

We were staying at the Botany Bay hotel in Broadstairs and this restaurant was a short taxi ride away (taxi £4.80 each way). The restaurant is small and cozy with an open view into the kitchen.

Can't say I'd originally planned to eat tapas in Broadstairs but my friend who knows the place booked this and it was a revelation! We had the taster menu, £20 for 6 courses which was brilliant value and just inventive enough. Also had the scrumptious deep fried custard for pudding. Service was lovely as well. Just remember to book as... More

I love tapas food, but sadly my experience at albarinos was very different to all the amazing reviews. After asking to have sangria without the fruit we got into a debate as to why I couldn't have it. I said I understand measures etc So to bump it up with ice but was still refused until after a 15 minute... More

We had seen a review of this restaurant last year but as they do not open weekday lunchtime we had to wait for a suitable evening, that was Saturday. Well worth the wait. We chose the chef's platter, six courses of amazing tastes. It was hard to decide which was our favourite, the goat cheese and Serrano ham topped with... More

Return visit was not disappointing. Both times opted for the Chef's selection which really does give you a very good sample of dishes available. Flavours are wonderful and, unless you are a very big eater, there is sufficient food - you can always order an extra dish if you're still hungry or a desert to finish perhaps. Well worth a... More

Justifiably busy restaurant, the food was excellent, lovely variety. My husband does not like seafood, but he tried and enjoyed even those. Good choice of beers tonight! I would thoroughly recommend this place!

A good selection of foods. I have been a few times and tried most of the menu and not disappointed with anything. The pork belly with prawns is particulary good.

We were meeting friends so opted to have a set menu to keep it simple and maximise time to chat. Every dish was well balanced and tasty with decent presentation. Service was friendly ,very attentive and even slightly rushed things at times . Value reasonable and has just enough Spanish authenticity for our tastes. Would go again.
