Amazing tapas

This restaurant is excellent. If you only eat in one place in Broadstairs this is the one. The food is superb with excellent variety. All very tasty and wish I could have eaten more. The staff were very friendly and helped with food intolerances. Get in early if you haven't booked as they were... read more

The staff were very friendly and helped with food intolerances. Get in early if you haven't booked as they were turning away a lot of people!

10/10 for this restaurant! The staff were fantastic - very friendly, smiley and helpful. The tables were all fully booked when we got there (around 7:30pm on a Tuesday), but we were able to sit at the bar. Only one other couple got in after us before they had to start turning people away, so it's an idea to book... More

Went here for a bite on a Saturday lunch time. We were the first ones in so managed to get a table next to the large open window looking out onto the street, which was nice. We asked the friendly and helpful waitress how many dishes to have as we've had varying sizes at different tapas bars. She said 2... More

Visited Albarino on Saturday night. Enjoyed the lively busy atmosphere and the beautiful view down to the sea. The food was exceptional. Each dish we ordered tasted delicious, especially the lamb which was tender and pink. Waiting staff friendly and chatty. Can't wait for a return visit!

Absolutely love this place! Have been a few times now and has been consistently brilliant. The food is amazing, really feels like you are in Spain, tasty, fresh and seasonal...excellent wine and sherry list and good service - what more could you ask for?!

Tried the Albarino towards the end of our stay in Broadstairs. We had the Chef's Choice tapas which was very enjoyable. I wasn't so keen on the venison burger but that's just me. I found it a bit strong. Staff were lovely, friendly and knowledgeable. The range of sherries and wine were excellent. Would definitely return on a future trip.

Our first visit and we are looking forward to the next already. We only had 4 dishes( the smoked haddock croquettes, crab toasts, octopus and deep fried custard) because we had had a late lunch. Each dish is packed with fresh clean flavours and nicely presented. The staff are very friendly and efficient, the room is cosy and it has... More

We have visited Albarino on one of previous trips to Broadstairs and enjoyed it so much that we had to go back! This time it was just for a drink with a couple of tapas dishes so we sat at the bar. I enjoyed a lovely glass of red wine with fennel chips and a wonderful hake dish with a... More

As a spaniard I am usually reluctant to go to Spanish restaurants in England as I normally find you have to pay a lot for decent quality. I came here with a couple of friends and was surprised by the quality and affordable prices. We ordered the lunch tasting menu, which included more food that we could eat and was... More

We hadn't visited before but went on the back of other Trip advisor reviews. A good decision. We had an assortment of tapas from the a la carte menu and everyone a hit. Pork belly with prawns, local crab on toast, some seasonal asparagus, roasted octopus with something or other, roast hake, the list could go on. Everyone delicious and... More
