We ate here for a quick dinner for two. Lovely food, good service and on a warm English summer evening, with the big front window/doors open out onto the road, it was a really pleasant evenings food and wine. It does get busy though and is very small, so worth booking ahead.

We booked this restaurant on the name alone, we love this wine from northern Spain, and by luck chanced upon a little gem! The restaurant is down near the sea front with picture windows, that open up on a sunny day, looking towards the sea. It is cozy, clean with a bright uncluttered appearance and very comfortable casual friendly atmosphere.... More

Dropped in on the off chance of getting a table & had to sit at the bar. Staff friendly and helpful. Food delicious but probably best to go for one of their deals (we didn't). Staff handled a rude and drunk couple very well. Will visit when next in Broadstairs.

A small restaurant that, on one evening seemed to be a one man kitchen. Superb food. The chef can even make marrow edible! We ordered the day's chef's special tapas selection which, even though it changes regularly, we have never found to disappoint over the last three Folkweeks. Highlights: Chick-pea and fennel chips, the best potato and onion fritatta ever... More

Had a fabulous dining experience here. The restaurant is tiny, but has a lovely atmosphere and feel to it. It can probably seat circa 22-25 people at best, but I think this makes it even more special. The 'lone chef' is rushed off his feet. It is an open kitchen, you can't see his head...but you can see a passionate,... More

We've been to Albariño several times now and this is fast becoming one of our favourite restaurants. Finding ourselves with a rare, child free night, we decided to make the trip to Broadstairs last night. We weren't disappointed! The food has been consistently excellent, from the simple bread with tomato to the pork belly with tiger prawns and pickled cucumber.... More

We found the restaurant while searching for options on Tripadvisor and tried it as it was #1 rated restaurant in Broadstairs. The choices were great and while we didn't try the chef's menu, the selections we made were all outstanding! Can definitely recommend to anyone looking for great restaurant in Broadstairs. Good to reserve a table in advance though!

A spur of the moment visit last night, the staff were very welcoming and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. We had the Chef's special which was was one of the best meals I have ever had. The home made Sangria was awesome and was a perfect end to a very long day. I would not hesitate to recommend this... More
